A sneak peak at Cats, the film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and TS Elliot's infamous musical, has dropped and the reactions have been less than positive.

The clip offers us the first footage of the all-star casts in all their feline glory, created using motion capture techniques which director Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) refers to as 'digital fur technology'.

The incredible cast includes Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, Taylor Swift, James Corden, Ian McEllen, Rebel Wilson and Idris Elba, who all belt our the film's anthems.

Unfortunately, the first furry glimpses of the upcoming live-action remake have left some viewers unhappy after the feline creatures were described online as 'cursed' and nightmarish.

The transmogrified CGI human-cat hybrids were unveiled last night, with the Universal Pictures film landing in cinemas on December 20 of this year.

Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler choreographs the movie, having worked on the 2016 Broadway revival. Lloyd Webber has also apparently written a new song for the film.

Many viewers found the mutated dancing cats to be troubling to watch. The story revolves around a tribe of cats called the Jellicles, which faces a series of challenging life-altering choices one fateful night.

Fans didn't appreciate beloved actors in CGI feline form, especially the revered cinema veteran Judi Dench:

Many Twitter users wondered why the stars didn't just wear catsuits, like in the stage show. The word 'abomination' was even used…

"A demented dream ballet" is possibly one of the greatest phrases we've heard yet: 

Important questions were raised: 

Conspiracy theories were introduced:

The working world ceased to exist for a moment from the distraction:

Some even wondered if the trailer was so horrifying, it could bestow a curse on all who watched it:

The only positive taken from the whole thing is that Grumpy Cat died just in time to never have to witness the terror:

We're not even sure if we'd make it through the cinematic experience of the movie, would you be willing to see the flick this December?

If it's in 3D, God help our souls. Fur-get it as soon as your eyes witness Taylor Swift as a cat wearing kitten heels.

The Easter weekend is just around the corner and we honestly can’t wait to curl up on the sofa with an Easter egg (or ten) and simply unwind.

As per usual, Corkman Graham has mustered up quite the incredible lineup.

Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson and actress Anne Hathaway will join Graham to chat all about their new movie The Hustle.

We really needed news like this in our lives right now, with all the negative news swirling around our auras, sucking the healthy energy from us.

All we want is a cleanse, and Taylor has delivered once again.

Not alone has she given fans her Reputation tour documentary on Netflix (breathtaking, BTW), she has now confirmed her role in the brand new Cats movie. MEOW GAL.

The singer posed next to a sign plastered with her character’s name, Bombalurina, and captioned it with a simple 'Meow'. Needless to say, the post garnered over one million likes in a matter of hours.

We. Are. Purring.

The Delicate singer will be starring alongside James Corden, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and Rebel Wilson in the upcoming movie, developed by Working Title.

Her co-star Idris Elba, who is clearly Team Tay-Tay, is already singing her praises.

The duo took to the Golden Globes stage together to present a few weks ago, with the Luther star saying she "has got chops" and "holds her own". Damn right she does.

Elba spoke about working with the multi-talented artist;

"Taylor and I have known each other for a couple of years and we’re cool you know. She’s a good girl; she’s a great artist and she’s got a really great heart," he said.

"I’m so excited to work with her in this film, she’s going to be amazing." Obvi?

Taylor has been candidly dating actor Joe Alwyn for the last two years, maybe she'll get some acting tips off her beau?

Rebel Wilson has just dropped a trailer for her new movie and it is unreal.

Called Isn’t It Romantic?, the film is a spit take of romantic comedies.

The idea is absolutely genius and we can’t wait to see it.

Natalie thinks rom-coms have distorted women’s views on reality. No one magically ends up with a sexy and smart guy after a chance encounter, and no one EVER lives happily ever after.

But after a bump on the head, she wakes up to find that not only is her life way better, but she is trapped in a rom-com alternate universe.

She is stuck in the stereotype – lives a rich lifestyle, has a dream apartment, a gay sidekick, and a smoking hot boyfriend.

The film also features Priyanka Chopra, Liam Hemsworth, and Adam Devine.

Rebel WIlson has taken to Twitter to detail two incidents of sexual harassment that she endured while working in the film industry. 

In a series of graphic tweets, she said:

'A male star, in a position of power asked me to go into a room with him and then asked me repeatedly to stick my finger up his ass.'

'All whilst his male 'friends' tried to film the incident on their iPhones and laughed. I repeatedly said no and eventually got out of the room.'

'I called my agent immediately and my lawyer made a complaint with the studio – basically to protect myself that in the event something similar ever occurred I'd be able to walk out of the job and not obliged to return.'

She detailed how she was then asked to 'support' the man: 'Later I was threatened by one of the star's representatives to be nice and support the male star.'

'I refused. The whole thing was disgusting. I've told hundreds of people in the industry the story in more graphic detail basically to warn them off this individual.'

She went on to describe a close call she encountered with a director at the beginning of her career.

'Earlier in my career, I also had a 'hotel room' encounter with a top director. I thought we were there to talk comedy,' she wrote. 

'Nothing physical happened because the guy's wife called and started abusing him over the phone for sleeping with actresses and luckily she was yelling so loud that I could hear her and I bolted out of there immediately.'

'I was so naive the thought of anything happening apart from 'work talk' didn't even cross my mind.'

Rebel added that she does not believe that her experiences are as horrific as some faced by other women.

'I know, moving forward, that if I witness this behaviour, whether it happens to me or someone I know, I will no longer be polite.'

Rebel Wilson has been awarded over €3 million (A$4.56m) in damages after articles published in a popular magazine made false accusations about the Australian actress.

The articles falsely claimed that Rebel had lied about her age, the origins of her first name and her Sydney upbringing, so that she could make it in Hollywood.

As a result, the Pitch Perfect star missed out on several film roles and other career opportunities.

Bauer Media, publisher of Woman's Day magazine, was found guilty of defamation after Justice John Dixon said it had failed to show the claims made against the actress had any substance.

According to Rebel's lawyers, the amount awarded is the “largest defamation damages award in Australian legal history.”

Rebel took to Twitter to express her relief after a “long hard court battle” and insisted the case “wasn't about the money.”

The actress went on to say how she would use the money help a number of charities as well as support the Australian film industry. 

She finished by thanking her fans for their love and support and revealed she was looking forward to getting back to her career.

In an industry which consistently focuses on the aesthetic, Aussie actress, Rebel Wilson, insists she has no intention of conforming to Hollywood's beauty ideals, and even credits her shape for her global success.

According to The Independent, the Pitch Perfect actress insists that despite what Hollywood would have you think, gaining weight actually did wonders for her career and celebrity profile.

Reflecting on the moment which caused her to question the link between appearance and audience appreciation, Rebel recalled being in a play with an actress larger than her.

 

Thanks again to @flaremag for making me their March cover girl. Issue out now!!

Speaking to The Telegraph, she said: "I was like: ‘Oh. That girls’ getting a lot of laughs, a lot easier than me. What is it?’ Because I don’t think there’s much difference in talent."

"And I remember distinctly thinking: ‘I think it’s because she’s fatter’. And then, I don’t know if it was mega-conscious, but I thought: ‘How can I get more laughs? Maybe if I was a bit fatter…’ And then suddenly I was fatter and doing comedy,” she explained.

Rebel said her appearance has predominantly worked to her advantage, once telling Cosmopolitan: "When I walked into my agent’s office for the first time, they looked and me and said, ‘Wow, we have nobody on our books like you.’ And they signed me on my second day here."

The 36-year-old actress, who suffers from a hormonal imbalance, acknowledges that her perspective is far from the norm in Tinseltown, saying: "I saw my size as being an advantage whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage."

If we didn't love her enough already…

Our favourite tennis competition of the year is fully under way, and the celebrities have begun to flock to the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in south London. 

The Wimbledon Championships, which is celebrating its 139th year, is a beacon for the who's who of popular culture.

Leading the pack this year is the beautiful Australian actress Rebel Wilson. The pitch perfect star arrived on Monday afternoon, rocking a green and white dress, paired with a chic white biker jacket, in keeping with the tennis theme. 

The hilarious Wilson, 36, is currently based in London, where she will make her West End debut this month as Miss Adelaide in a production of Guys and Dolls

Pippa Middleton was also in attendance on the first day of this historical sporting competition. The Aunt of England's future king looked stunning in a white dress decorated with poppies, paired with a red clutch and simple white heels. 

We are so excited the rest of the fabulous style throughout the tennis season!

There's something about seeing celebrities roast each other that we all totally love, but when they do it to the sound of serious beats?! Well. we literally can't get enough.

Facing James Corden in a rap battle last night, everyone's favourite Friend, David Schwimmer, proved that he's definitely no pushover when it comes to trash talk.

Like his character on Friends, David obviously spent some time 'working on his music', and, ladies, he let James Corden HAVE it.

The British host gave as good as he got though and went to TOWN on David's flailing career since taking his last sip of coffee in Central Perk back in 2004.

And if that wasn't good enough, out comes Rebel Wilson who, unsurprisingly, absolutely slaaaaaayed.

This is too good to miss out on, and we cannot stop laughing.

We might know her for her wacky role in Bridesmaids and her comedic timing in Pitch Perfect, but it seems Rebel Wilson is only dying to get her teeth into a meatier role, and it looks like she'll be channelling her inner Adele to do it.

According to emerging reports, the 36-year-old Aussie is set to play the Someone Like You singer in an upcoming biopic, and is on the edge of her seat until everyone's favourite Londoner grants the actress her blessing.

Giving an insight into Rebel's dream career path, a source close to the star told the Daily Star: "Rebel has always wanted to prove she can cut it as a serious actress. She knows that she can’t go on playing wacky fatgirl roles forever."

"She thinks that this role could be the making of her career and transform her into a major movie star," they continued. "This is going to be a huge challenge for her because Adele is a legend at the peak of her popularity."

While we all know Rebel can hold a note or two. Adele's loyal fans will need to know the actress can do their idol justice in the rags to riches story – something which Rebel reportedly insists won't be a problem.

Speaking on behalf of the actress, the insider continued: "Rebel can’t match Adele’s vocal talents but she can certainly sing. And with a little technical wizardry, she’ll sound just like her in the movie."

Rebel as Adele? We could get on board….

We know Rebel Wilson for being hilarious, but the actress seemed to have got a bit of a fright on a recent night out. 

The Pitch Perfect star took to Twitter to say that she reckons her drink was spiked while out in a nightclub in LA  earlier this week. 

According to Rebel, she only went out for one quick drink but left after she felt like something wasn't quite right. 

"Hey guys, but especially to all the girls out there, please be super careful about what you drink when out at clubs and bars at night," read the first in a series of tweets about the incident. 

"I had one drink last night at a trendy club which I believe may have been spiked with something. I felt super tired and disoriented

"Lucky for me, I only drank 1/3 of the drink and realised something wasn't quite right in time to get home before it really hit me."

"I got home safely but woke up this morning feeling like I'd been hit by a truck.

The 36-year-old took the opportunity to warn her fans to be careful with drinks when out on the town. 

"I never thought that would happen to me, but if it does please act as soon as you feel something strange and get yourself to safety."

Just last week, Rebel debuted a pretty shocking new hair colour that we are still really divided on as she gears up to begin filming for Pitch Perfect 3.

While we are all for celebs changing up their look from time to time, we can't say we were expecting this drastic change from actress and comedienne Rebel Wilson. 

The 36-year-old has ditched her flowing blonde locks in favour of a new daring shade. 

And that shade is bright orange. 

We can't say that this is our favourite look for the Pitch Perfect actress who usually rocks a gorgeous shade of blonde. 

Rebel was snapped leaving a Beverly Hills salon with her new 'do but it has not been confirmed whether the look is for a role or a personal change for the star. 

The Australian actress has been on a whirlwind promotional tour for her latest flick How to be Single and she is due to begin production for Pitch Perfect 3 in the next few months. 

We love Rebel but we kind of hope this look is for a film or else just a transitionary colour.
