After some first look footage back over the summer that has caused one hell of a storm amongst Film Twitter…it is happening again. The second trailer for Tom Hooper’s big-screen take on Cats has been rated last night by the Québec film ratings board.

We would have expected it to hit this weekend with Last Christmas’ US release, however there appears to be no sign of it appearing so far with screenings…so odds are on this landing online next week, plus in cinemas with Ford v Ferrari, Charlie’s Angels and of course, no doubt, Frozen 2 the following week.

UPDATE: The trailer was rated today by Alberta Film Ratings, confirming the merciful runtime of 101 seconds, with the timing of the rating (and lack of reports on it appearing with Ford v Ferrari and this weekend’s films) indicating a debut next week in time for Frozen 2.

As always, we’ll be sure to bring in more info on this as it arrives, as well as the trailer itself and any official announcements.

One of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, the stage musical “Cats” received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981, where it played for 21 years and earned the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical. In 1983, the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and ran for an extraordinary 18 years. Since opening in London in 1981, “Cats” has continuously appeared on stage around the globe, to date having played to 81 million people in more than fifty countries and in nineteen languages. It is regarded as one of the most successful musicals of all time.

Starring James Corden, Dame Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson , Sir Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson and Francesca Hayward, the film is released December 20 in the U.S. and the UK.
