Cats is a 2019 musical fantasy movie based on the stage musical of the same name by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The movie is directed by Tom Hooper—in his second feature musical following Les Misérables (2012)—from a screenplay by Lee Hall and Hooper. It stars James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, and Francesca Hayward.

Cats was theatrically released in the United Kingdom and the United States on 20 December 2019, by Universal Pictures. The movie had very bad reviews from critics, with many calling it one of the worst movies of 2019.

The movie also became a box-office bomb, making $74 million on a budget as high as $100 million.
