Cats, from director Tom Hooper, promises to be the biggest musical film event of the year. With catnip, digitized fur, images of luxurious parties, and an all-star cast including Jennifer Hudson, Idris Elba, Taylor Swift, James Cordon, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, and newcomer Francesca Hayward. The film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s famous Broadway musical is quite indescribable.
Now Universal has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming film, which will have more dancing and more feline antics. You can find the first trailer right here if you missed it. Check out the new trailer below.
Yesterday, Universal teased the technology that would transform regular looking people like Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Rebel Wilson, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Ian McKellen, and Judi Dench into felines for Cats, a film adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name.
Now the studio has released the first trailer for that film adaptation. And the results, are, well, you should probably just make that judgment for yourself. Check out the trailer below.
Universal has released a first look featurette Tom Hooper‘s film adaptation of Cats. Based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical which was inspired by on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, the film will feature Lloyd Webber’s iconic music and a world-class cast of dancers, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, and street to tap to present the musical to a younger generation in a whole new way.
I can’t say I am overly familiar with Cats, but based on everything in the featurette, it will be using new tools and technologies to transform the actors into feline forms. Check the video below.
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Black Friday left us — more or less — free from torrents of blood running red in our streets. As we move beyond the shopping hell that launched the holiday season, we can now focus on what it’s all about — giving people cool stuff. And while Christmas might have other meanings, that isn’t what this article is about. So without further ado, I’d like to list a couple of my personal suggestions to make the holidays substantially more holly jolly — especially if you have a cat… well, only if you have a cat, actually.
Here’s the 2016 Holiday Geek Gift Guide for Cat Lovers…

Seriously, the title says enough. If Men With Cats: Intimate Portraits of Feline Friendship doesn’t make you curious, or maybe make you laugh out loud, then skip to the next link.
Before 2009, I wasn’t a cat guy. My dad and sister were allergic, and all the cats I knew would spend their days under furniture hissing at any would-be petters. So when my wife took me to a friend’s house and surprised me by saying, “Oh, yeah, we’re getting a cat,” I was a bit the contrarian. Being a kitten owner for 6 years now has been great. It’s like having an extra loving family member who always greets you at the door, and occasionally trips you when you walk.
Author David Williams began this journey in 2009 as well. A long-time pet owner and cat lover, he found that a lot of men were into cats as well… debunking the popular “men and dogs” stereotype. Starting with friends and moving along to actors, artists, mechanics, chefs, and mountain men, Williams took photos of men with their feline friends.
