What Is 'Cats' About? Movie Trailer Finally Explains Plot to Confused Broadway Fans

One thing that most Broadway fans agree on is that the plot of the musical Cats is super confusing and people aren’t even sure what the show is about.

When it was announced that the musical would be made into a movie, the news was met with lots of groans. But now the latest trailer for the film has done something that previous marketing materials never did… it explained the plot!

Judi Dench‘s Old Deuteronomy does a voiceover in the new trailer and she basically reveals what is going on in the film: “Tonight is a magical night where I choose the cat that deserves a new life… I judge a cat by its soul.”

“The most deserving cat will be reborn into another life so they can be who they’ve always dreamed of being,” Robbie Fairchild‘s Munkustrap then says.

Here’s the synopsis provided by Universal: “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.”

'Cats' Will Miss Deadlines for Golden Globes & More Awards

Don’t expect to see the cast of the movie Cats at the 2020 Golden Globes because the film is going to miss the eligibility deadline.

Indiewire reports that the movie will not be screened for awards voters until mid-December, which means it will miss the deadlines for several prestigious awards.

The final screening for the Golden Globes voters can be held on December 4. Other awards that the movie will miss including the SAG Awards, which close nominations on December 8, and the National Board of Review Awards, which announce their winners on December 3.

The New York Film Critics have even been told that they should not expect to see the movie before they vote on December 4.

Cats will be released in time for Oscars consideration, but the release date of December 20 won’t give voters that much time to see the film as voting for nominations closes on January 7.

Taylor Swift will be eligible for Best Original Song as she has co-written a new song for the movie with composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Meghan Markle Is the First-Ever Guest Editor of British Vogue's September Issue!

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) is taking on a new role – as the guest editor of British Vogue‘s highly coveted September issue, out on newsstands on August 2.

Editor-in-chief Edward Enninful revealed that the Duchess is the first person to guest-edit the September Issue of British Vogue.

“To have the country’s most influential beacon of change guest edit British Vogue at this time has been an honour, a pleasure and a wonderful surprise. As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege. From the very beginning, we talked about the cover – whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a ‘boastful’ thing to do for this particular project. She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires,” he explained.

The women Meghan selected to appear on the cover are: Adwoa Aboah, Adut Akech, Ramla Ali, Jacinda Ardern, Sinead Burke, Gemma Chan, Laverne Cox, Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek Pinault, Francesca Hayward, Jameela Jamil, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Yara Shahidi, Greta Thunberg, Christy Turlington Burns – and you, the reader, represented by a mirror.

“Guest Editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created. A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying ‘Yes!’- and to Edward, thank you for this wonderful opportunity,” Meghan said on her Instagram.

'Cats' Movie Cast - See Side-By-Side Photos of Actors & Cats!

We finally have been given our first look at the Cats movie and now we know what the actors will look like as cats!

Ever since a film version of the classic Broadway musical was announced, fans have been wondering how director Tom Hooper would portray the cats on screen.

“We’ve used digital fur technology to create the most perfect covering of fur,” Tom has said.

Taylor Swift, James Corden, Idris Elba, and Jennifer Hudson lead the star-studded cast of actors and singers who are bringing the musical to life on the big screen.

Tom‘s pairing them with a level of technology which I don’t think has ever been used before,” James said. “These are people, but they’re cats, and this is kinda of blowing my mind. There is nothing else like it.
