'Cats' Premiere: See the Purrfect Red Carpet Looks From Taylor Swift and Cast

December 17, 2019

New York City has gone to the cats.

The city hosted a purrfect premiere for 'CATS' on Monday night, the highly-anticipated live-action film adaptation of the musical composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

According to the official synopsis, “A tribe of cats must decide yearly which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and come back to a new life.”

Much of the film’s buzz-worthy cast including Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, James Corden, and Jennifer Hudson, walked the red carpet at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center to celebrate the film’s public release.

The film has garnered mixed reviews because of the heavy post-production and the CGI (also known as "digital fur technology) used to transform the cast into furry felines.

The film also stars Judi Dench as Old Deuteronomy and Ian McKellan as Gus The Theatre Cat.

Head to theaters when the film debuts on Friday, December 20.
