Look, I’m sure a big-budget, live-action CGI film adaptation of the blockbuster musical, Cats, starring superstars like Taylor Swift and Idris Elba was a good idea on paper, but if the official trailer is anything to go by, the final result settles somewhere between “nightmare fuel” and “even furries would have trouble fapping to this.”
Given the reaction to the first Cats trailer, which can be summed up as “WTF did I just watch,” this second trailer tries to shine the spotlight on the actual plot and the results are, well, mixed.
Kudos to the Cats marketing team for trying to take the attention away from the creepy CGI human/cat hybrids, but there’s simply no way people aren’t going to notice the fur.
I’m not sure which is worse, the filmmakers somehow achieving the impossible by turning Idris Elba and Taylor Swift into things that’ll scar you for life or the fact that they apparently spent over $400 million on this movie.
It certainly hasn’t won any new furries over either. After the first Cats trailer proved to be terrible fapping material for furries, the latest trailer hasn’t done anything to change anyone’s mind or stir their loins.
No one asked for a Cats movie and that sentiment hasn’t changed after seeing the trailers. But the internet being the internet, folks have managed to turn this dumpster fire into some meme gold.
Hey, if you just can’t like something no matter how much you want to, might as well make some jokes out of it. And boy were there some solid jokes to come out of the new Cats trailer.
But look, let’s try and fight the urge to judge too much before Cats drops upon us on Boxing Day. Who knows, it could be a masterpiece. I’m not banking on it, but it might be!
