Andrew Lloyd Webber Hates The ‘Cats’ Movie
Andrew Lloyd Webber is still thinking about Cats the film, and it’s not in a good way.
The composer of the original musical shared his thoughts in a recent interview with The Sunday Times.
“The problem with the film was that Tom Hooper decided that he didn’t want anybody involved in it who was involved in the original show,” he said. “The whole thing was ridiculous.”
The first trailer immediately got hate for its bizarre photorealistic cat-human hybrids, even though it starred Taylor Swift, Judi Dench, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Rebel Wilson and others.
Apparently, Universal lost an estimated $113 million.
A different version of the movie was released after its initial debut and Universal Pictures sent out a memo to theaters saying they will be sending out a new version that included “improved visual effects.” LOL! Still, it didn’t make any difference.
Well, at least we’ll always have the theater version!
