The First Poster for "Cats" Is Not Nearly as Horrifying as the Trailer

Yesterday, the internet lost its collective mind over the first trailer for the big-screen adaptation of the musical Cats. This is going to be one of those stylistic decisions that people are going to be debating the merit of for the rest of time.

As we continue to debate whether or not the motion capture cats in this movie work or not Universal Pictures released the first poster on the official Twitter account.

The First Poster for "Cats" Is Not Nearly as Horrifying as the Trailer

That's a pretty good little poster. It's not beautiful but it's far from bad and does the job.

The internet seems pretty divided on the motion capture for this movie. Some think it looks terrifying while others think it works for the movie director Tom Hooper and his team wants to make.

Do you like the motion capture technology for this movie? Or would you have preferred make-up and costumes like the stage play? Let us know in the comments.

Summary: A tribe of cats called the Jellicles must decide yearly which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new Jellicle life.

Cats, directed by Tom Hooper, stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and Francesca Hayward. It will be released on December 20th.
