The second Cats trailer reminds people why they would pass on seeing the film 1

Universal Pictures has dropped the second trailer for the movie Cats, and though the video features the finished digital effects on the film’s controversial CGI fur, the tweak was not that obvious, as a lot of people find the new trailer as disturbing (if not more disturbing) as the first one released last July.

CATS - New Trailer

Shorter than the first one, the second trailer shows off more dancing but notably less singing. Though the leaps, pirouettes, and the tap-dancing seen in the video look incredible, all these are still strongly overshadowed by the unsettling mix of CGI and live-action used to portray the cats in the movie.

Below are some of the negative reactions to the new trailer on Twitter:


Surprisingly, there are a number of people who are still interested in seeing the movie despite not being totally impressed by the trailers.


But the most excited to see the film are the fans of the stage musical on which the movie is based.

Directed by Tom Hooper from a screenplay by him and Lee Hall, Cats follows a tribe of cats called the Jellicles who, over the course of one night, makes what is known as “the Jellicle choice” and decides which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.

With music by Taylor Swift and Andrew Lloyd Webber — the composer of the original Cats stage musical, the movie stars Francesca Hayward as Victoria, James Corden as Bustopher Jones, Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy,  Jason Derulo as Rum Tum Tugger, Idris Elba as Macavity, Jennifer Hudson as Grizabella, Ian McKellen as Gus the Theater Cat, Swift as Bombalurina, Rebel Wilson as Jennyanydots, and many more.

Cats opens in U.S. theaters on December 20th.
