UPDATE: Friday is officially the day. We expect it online at 4pm UK/8am PT/11am ET…

Following teases from Alamo Drafthouse’s NYC cinema and superstar Taylor Swift that something from the much-anticipated big-screen adaptation of Cats is due to arrive on Friday, we can now safely say that it will indeed be the film’s first trailer. The debut look – set to be a more substantial full trailer than a teaser – has been rated overnight by Alberta Film Ratings and we’ll be sure to have it here as soon as it’s online Friday…
