Oscar®-winning director Tom Hooper reimagines Andrew Lloyd Webber's record-shattering musical. Starring James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and introducing Royal Ballet principal Francesca Hayward. With a world-class cast of dancers showcasing styles from classical ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, street dance to tap, this film reimagines the stage musical for a new generation. You will believe in the fun and magic of Cats.


"Whether you think the imagery is beautiful or nightmarish, this is a film that demands to be looked at."

"The movie is outlandish and sexual and confusing. But that doesn't make it a bad movie. In fact, I'm going to call it a good movie."
- USA Today
"It's just baffling and yet it must be seen..."
- FilmWeek (NPR Los Angeles)
