    So there's a trailer up for a live-action adaptation of the famous Broadway show, and the visual effects are... rather odd, IMO. I admit to me they seem a bit creepy, and maybe not the best choice. I'm keeping an open mind, naturally, they just seem weird.



    Some people have commented on the weirdness of Judy Dench apparently wearing a fur coat, when she's already a humanoid cat. :lol: Some of the comments have been rather entertaining. :angel:

    Looks kinda intriguing, actually. "Weird" is not necessarily bad. Sometimes the weirder, the better! :)

    Hard to believe that Joel Schumacher wasn't involved somewhere here.

    Judi Dench is a nice surprise since she was supposed to be in the original production of Cats but she broke her leg before hand was was replaced with Elaine Page.

    As I've said in another thread, I have a problem with the gender-swapping of Old Deuteronomy, as he's supposed to be the father of many of the other younger cats, at least according to one theory.

    That said, the more I see this trailer, the more I get the idea that they've come up with a backstory and plot to couch the music in, on top of the minimal plot from the original book and musical. It wouldn't surprise me to find this film to be a long one to account for it.
