Your mom is gonna love it, and she will take you along, and you will squirm the entire way through.
That terrified me more than the IT: Chapter 2 trailer. Woooooow
Trainwreck, is a word.
God I love a good trainwreck
*throws phone out of window*
I think this movie likely does well overseas, train wreck or not. Domestically, I don’t know if it will even be able to crack $100M. *Maybe* $85M domestic is possible (Would be along the lines of 2011’s The Muppets and 2014’s Annie)
I'd rather have a good root canal than see this movie.
I don't understand that tagline at the end. "This holiday season... you will believe." Believe in what???
Obviously, people that are already fans of the Broadway show (which I am NOT), will go see this. But, I don't know how this will attract regular audience members that don't have an attachment to the show already.
There you go. Now we know why it's taken so long to replace T2 with Bourne.....Gomer says , "Surprise surprise" Cats will replace T2........................ .......A joke. A joke. ....but then again, Universal has done stranger things, like turn F&F into a party bus attraction.
They even stole the fat cat falling off its perch from SLoP! Yeeesh
So... I LOVE the stage version. I saw it a couple of times, and it was a fave soundtrack growing up (my wife bought me a copy of Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats a few years ago). That said...
It looks remarkably true to how I remember it. At least visually. Dialogue is... New. I get it though. The narrative of Cats is pretty abstract (cats “competing” to ascend to the Heaviside Layer), and needs the dialogue to make sense.
I saw it getting dragged hard on Twitter. The screen grabs make it look deserved. And Tom Hooper is a hack. But, damn, when they’re in motion, I get it and I dig it.
And Jason Derulo as Rum Tum Tugger is tops.
Edit - Corrected Jeliside to Heavyside. The Jelleside Layer is our world (all the cats are "Jellecle Cats"). Heavyside is "heaven." And, yes, my nerdiness is showing.
Me after watching the trailer:
I'm gonna look on the bright side and just think about all the glorious memes we'll get out of this movie (and probably the trailer alone).
Well, this film is a big ol' NOPE from me. Those faces are a new kind of horrifying, to quote someone else, it's "The UnCatty Valley". Seriously, if you're going to make a bunch of anthropomorphic cats, go full-blown and give them cat faces. Not Island of Dr. Moreau cat faces.
Other than that, other aspects of the film such as the larger sets to make everyone cat sized are actually a bit of a neat touch. But it's not neat enough to shake off the feeling that this is gonna' be a trainwreck.
Since it's a Universal property, they should have used it for a HHN house this year
Guess I’m in the minority here but this trailer actually gave me optimism. At first I was very against the thought of Cats specifically since it was replacing the Wicked film. Yet after seeing this I believe that there may be some true entertainment here. I’ll give it a shot with this trailer at least giving me some push. Suppose I’m getting easy lol.
And here I thought Sonic looked rough...
Ya'll keep hatin'. It'll win an Oscar.
It'll be a production Oscar, but it's winning one.
