Rebel Wilson Loved People’s Reaction To The ‘Cats’ Trailer Despite The Harsh Critics
Rebel Wilson revealed that she loved people’s reactions to the Cats trailer.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Wilson said that she’s seen harsher opinions about the trailer, including the most popular one, “it’s creepy.”
“When the trailer came out, the response was pretty massive,” she said. “There’s some people who were like, ‘Oh my god,’ because it is brand-new technology that’s CGI. I think people get confused because it’s essentially a dance movie in a lot of ways,” Wilson continued.
“I think people get confused because it’s essentially a dance movie in a lot of ways. So it really is all our own bodies. And yes, they’re covered in fur. I think some people found it a bit creepy ’cause we’re people but we look a bit like cats dancing around.”
Despite seeing all the negative comments about the trailer, Wilson seems to believe that all press is good press and that the more attention the trailer gets the more it will make fans want to see the movie.
“I loved the reaction. I think it was a bit polarizing and people will be super-curious to see the finished product,” Wilson said. “What you got in that trailer was just some small samples of it, but it’s going to be such a big movie. And the cast is obviously incredible.”
Wilson also commented on her character’s look.
“To me, it looked like how I thought it would look. What’s so brilliant about the movie is the dancing. It’s got some of the world’s best dancers, from ballet dancers to hip-hop dancers… oh, and tap dancers!” the actress said. “It’s incredible. I can’t wait for people to see those big numbers on the big screen.”
Wilson plays Jennyanydots in the film.
It will be released in theaters on December 20.
