Everyone Is Roasting The Completely Cooked Trailer For ‘Cats’
"Petition to never turn James Corden back from a cat into a human."
Every once in awhile, something comes along that unites the internet behind a single common cause. Today, that thing is the deeply, deeply cooked trailer for the movie adaptation of Cats.
Woke up from the best sleep I’ve had in weeks to discover a timeline 100 per cent solidly united in horror at Cats

To be fair, the film actually sounds pretty good on paper. You’ve got iconic source material, an Oscar-winning director, and a star-studded cast that includes Jennifer Hudson, Judi Dench, Idris Elba, Ian McKellan, Taylor Swift and James Corden.
But all the famous faces in the world don’t mean shit when you make them look like this.
I don’t know what I expected from CATS’ “digital fur technology” but the short answer is NOT this.
