Showed the trailer to my almost five year old daughter and she loves it! Really wants to see the movie now. The director is really good so this may be better than it looks.

So, rather than using famous people in costumes, they've created computer-generated characters that look like... famous people in costumes?  :blink:

To be fair, it was probably cheaper and less labor intensive than applying that sort of heavy makeup across the entire cast, or constructing properly scaled sets.

Doesn't mean it's not using the uncanny valley as a Tony Hawk level. :lol:

If I want to see a Cats movie all I need to do  is go to youtube.

Dangit.. now I'm picturing the entire thing done up MST3K style with entirely meme-based dialogue.

I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're probably right.  Makeup and costumes for the dozens of characters shown would add up quickly. They CG *everything* now, even for something as basic as "stock footage of a helicopter flying over a desert", because it's cheaper to CG it from scratch, than to license the actual stock footage...

Is Taylor Swift the only one wearing shoes?  That looked odd, when all the others were "naked"...

Ah, but they DID go to the trouble of constructing the massive sets, see...  :huh:

Anyone got a screen cap of Ian McKellan? That one's gold.

Couldn’t care less for this movie, but that right there stirs thoughts of a live action Cheetara and The Thundercats.

Huh, that's a good point.

Curious, although I wish they had been able to keep the cat noses from the musical.

No cat butts make me unable to suspend my disbelief.

Between this and Sonic the Hedgehog, 2019 seems to have bought a condo in the Uncanny Valley.

This looks as bad, if not worse, than Mike Myers as The Cat in the Hat.
