“Cats” is Headed for a Major Box Office Loss

Judi Dench in "Cats"

Cats is officially bombing at the box office. 

Multiple outlets report that the feature adaptation of the acclaimed musical from Andrew Lloyd Webber is bound to lose anywhere between $70-$100 million according to rival studio executives and based off a production cost of $90 million net. 

After opening to a very disappointing $6.5 million domestic debut, Cats failed to gain any traction in the box office. 

The feature adaptation of the musical about a tribe of cats called Jellicles and their competition to determine who will receive a new life features a stellar cast pretending to be felines that includes Judi Dench, Jennifer Hudson, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, James Corden, and Idris Elba.
