Here’s the fantastic sounding and looking trailer for Director Tom Hooper’s adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s acclaimed musical Cats which stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift and Rebel Wilson.
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, Cats received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981, where it played for 21 years and earned the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical.
In 1983, the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and ran for an extraordinary 18 years.
Since opening in London in 1981, Cats has continuously appeared on stage around the globe, to date having played to 81 million people in more than fifty countries and in nineteen languages. It is regarded as one of the most successful musicals of all time.
Executive Produced by Lloyd Webber and Steven Spielberg and featuring Lloyd Webber’s iconic music, this film version reimagines the musical for a new generation with spectacular production design, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, street to tap.
Universal Pictures presents Cats, a Working Title Films and Amblin Entertainment production, in association with Monumental Pictures and The Really Useful Group, in cinemas this Christmas.
