Voor de Cats-verfilming van Tom Hooper (Les Misérables) werd gebruikt gemaakt van “digital fur technology” om de huid van acteurs als Taylor Swift (zie foto), Jennifer Hudson en Idris Elba te vervangen door een kattenvacht.
Het resultaat was voor het eerst te zien in de pas geloste trailer en heeft voor verwarring en afgrijzen gezorgd bij de filmpers en sterren zoals Us-regisseur Jordan Peele. Een greep uit de reacties:
I can never let our cats see this trailer.

I don't know why you're all freaking out over miniature yet huge cats with human celebrity faces and sexy breasts performing a demented dream ballet for kids.

The digital fur technology in CATS… chef's kiss
The digital face replacement in CATS… clearly done by somebody who just learned to place the names of his favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! characters onto the Obama meet-and-greet video from Key & Peele

The first trailer for #CatsMovie is appropriately terrifying and insane, like a drug-induced nightmare made real. I can't wait! via @Forbes by @ScottMendelson

My thoughts on the #CatsMovie trailer:
Oof this cast is so haphazard.
I forgot Jason Derulo was in this too…
I really wish I saw the Broadway show because I can't make heads or tails of what is even going on in this trailer.

Do not watch the CATS the movie trailer! It is created by Russians who are stealing people's faces and putting them on cats!!

I’ve looked at a lot of cats in my life and I’ve never seen one with a tail coming out of its ass pic.twitter.com/XnskEXjZax
