The effect, unveiled in a trailer after months of secrecy, is startling.

A trailer for the new movie Cats was released Thursday and many people took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new clip.


"Cats" stars Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, and many more. The film's plot centers on a tribe of cats called the Jellicles that in a single night make what is known as "the Jellicle choice" and decide which cat will ascend to "Heaviside Layer" - that's cat heaven in case you were wondering.

Hooper's adaptation is the film we deserve in 2019, seemingly plucked from the mind of someone with a fever who improbably chose to drop acid and play with some cats. The director of Get Out has himself recognized that the adaptation of Catsdeserved a soundtrack is a bit more oppressive, considering the appearance considered "terrifying" characters half-cat half-human.


"I love the CATS trailer because I WANT to be horrified".

"As a cat lover, and a pet owner, he (Hooper) told me I was going to get to go to cat school every day. I WANT to feel!", said one user.


If you can't stomach the trailer, here's what you need to know: the film is an adaptation of of Andrew Lloyd Weber's musical of the same name, the fourth longest-running show on Broadway, which itself was derived from a T.S. Eliot book of children's poetry, Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
