Cats: An updated version of the movie is being sent to movie theaters AFTER the film’s release

There’s the phrase ‘don’t mess with perfection,’ but this is definitely not that.

According to a note that was reportedly sent to movie theater operations staff and managers, an updated version of the already infamous movie musical Cats is being sent to movie theaters… even though the film was already released on Friday.

As reported by Variety, the film’s director Tom Hooper didn't actually finish working on the film until the day before the world premiere, which was last Monday.

And now, almost a week later, Hooper has apparently continued to edit and tinker with the movie even after its theatrical release, as a new version of the film is reportedly being sent to movie theaters.

In an exchange on Twitter on Friday, it was revealed that the following note was sent to theaters playing the film: 

‘DCDC and Deluxe-Technicolor will be sending updated FTR-20 SMPTE DCPs of Cats which will include some improved visual effects. The runtime is unchanged.’

While the actual content of the movie will most likely remain unchanged, some visual effects may have been fixed or improved by the director and his post production team. 

The film, meanwhile, is in the midst of receiving abysmal word of mouth and negative reviews, that have combined to create a curiously attention-getting ‘anti-buzz.’

While Hooper won an Academy Award for directing the 2010 gem The King’s Speech, which also won Best Picture that year, this film, based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber Broadway musical, is suffering with a terrible 19 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Most of the reviews are fairly savage, including one summarized simply with the word, ‘Woof’, however the Daily Mail’s own Brian Viner found he had a soft spot for the feline fiasco.

Praising the film, he wrote: ‘Eight out of ten cinemagoers will enjoy it, as long as they go along prepared for what is essentially a feline-themed ballet.’

Jason Derulo, who stars as Rum Tum Tugger in the film, is himself rather displeased with critics’ poor opinions, telling TMZ in New York City on Thursday that he thought the film is ‘a deportation to another dimension.’

‘Reviews don’t matter man, reviews don’t matter,’ he also insisted, calling the film ‘an incredibly brave piece of art.’ 

It should also be noted that the audience score for Cats on Rotten Tomatoes is considerably higher than the critic composite rating, standing at a much healthier 64 percent.
