The 34 best memes about the nightmarish Cats movie trailer

Why do they look so WEIRD

Yesterday the trailer for the new Cats movie was released and honestly, it is one of the most fucked up things ever conceived. But, it did inspire some of the best Twitter memes you could ask for.

The movie, based on the Broadway musical of the same name, has an all star cast including Taylor Swift, Judi Dench, James Corden, Idris Elba and Jason Derulo. It does feel a little bit like they just picked a load of names out of a box with "famous people" written on it.

The new Cats movie apparently employs a brand new form of CGI which "isn't CGI" but just "makes you look like a cat" according to Andrew Lloyd Webber, creator of the original Cats musical. Whatever new form of CGI this is, I am scared of it.

But Twitter is revelling in the weirdness. This has produced some of the best memes since everyone decided to storm Area 51 to "see them aliens" last week.

You can watch the trailer at your own peril, but then soothe yourself with 34 of the best memes about the absolute hellscape that is this film, below:
