I remember seeing the first trailer of this and thinking, "Errrr, OK!?!" I also thought that there is a lot of named talent in this movie too. Of course I smiled when I saw a person of colour like Idris and Jennifer, but I also smiled when I saw the names of greats such as Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judy Dench. But looking at the trailer simply had me intrigued. This trailer does nothing more but add to the intrigue and also puzzle me like the first trailer did.
I mean what is this movie about? I never saw the theatre production and I think, from what I've heard or understand, it is a bunch of stray cats, living a cats life. I mean, it's not Top Cat or Heathcliff, cats in which I'm familiar with, just a bunch of sing-song stray cats. The entire premise is weird and it looks weird and I can't say I'm bought into this, people in costumes doing cat-like things with cat-like mannerisms and I'm not sure what to make of it if I'm honest. So with that said, I'll give this a..."Hmmm, maybe". Plus I'm not sure if I'm a fan of musicals if I'm honest. For Colored Girls caught me off-guard and I wasn't a huge fan of the musical/Spoken word/Poetry of it, although I loved the stories told in the movie. Hmmm....
Directed By Tom Hooper and starring James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen,
