Considering that I have so much Pop Culture stuff to share on the PiercingMetal website and when one adds to this the fact that the Comic Con International: San Diego has just begun, I admit that I was not all that aware that a live action film for the hit Broadway show “Cats” was even a thing. Of course it is and we have the first Official Trailer for this Universal Pictures release to share with you so take a look down below. I’ve also added in the premise and the massive casting along with the early released artwork. Enjoy.

The Premise: Over the course of a single night, a tribe of cats called the Jellicles make what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decide which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Though this looks to be quite charming and very well designed, the motion picture musical is not generally something that I find myself seeing these days. I think this might make a wonderful thing to take the wee ones to during their holiday break so definitely mark it down on your potential list of things to do. That is some star-studded cast for sure with some really big names participating in the film. The original Broadway show was one of the longest running ever and while I don’t have the exact figure, it made Andrew Lloyd Webber something just short of a bajillion dollars. The plays overall appeal makes me wonder how a film translation of it might do so let’s see what happens. Did you enjoy the trailer? Will you be planning on seeing this during the Christmas break? Chime in down below in the comments section.
