Get a spotlight and a drumroll please as Universal Pictures unveil three New TV Spots for Cats.
Like we’ve said previously, no matter how good or bad the Cats Trailers were, if you love the musical you’ll love this. The powers to be at Universal Pictures, Andrew Lloyd Webber would have been been shocked at the public response. Social media erupted as did the press, pushing Tom Hooper to make changes.
Talking to Empire Magazine, it caught the director off guard. Pushing him to make changes, especially in the visual effects. “Possibly there were, in the extremity in some of the responses, some clues in how to keep evolving [the production]. When you watch the finished film, you’ll see that some of the designs of the cats have moved on since then, and certainly our understanding of how to use the technology to make them work has gone up, too.”
One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, the stage musical “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.
Cats stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Francesca Hayward.
Will Cats still be that ‘Purr-fect’ Christmas film when it’s released in cinemas from 20th December.
