The Best Social Media Reactions to the ‘Cats’ Trailer

The “Cats” trailer is finally here, and the Internet isn’t too happy about it.
When it was announced that the beloved musical would be given the live-action treatment, musical theater lovers rejoiced. But many have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment — and downright terror — toward the film’s first trailer.

The trailer features a number of A-list actors and musicians, including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba and Dame Judi Dench, among others, who appear as felines with human-like faces and bodies. The film’s director, Tom Hooper — best known for directing films like “Les Misérables” and “The King’s Speech” — has called the technique “digital fur technology.”
Many commenters are poking fun at said technology, comparing the actors to other iterations of this anthropomorphism in film, including in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” where Emma Watson’s character, Hermione Granger, accidentally transforms into a cat, and Mike Myers’ take on “The Cat in the Hat.” Others have taken liberty with the trailer by adding in their own edits, like one user who cut in the song from Jordan Peele’s horror film, “Us,” over the “Cats” trailer.

Charles Barkley named this Celtics legend as best player he had to guard in NBA

Charles Barkley played in the golden era of the NBA. His career began in the 1984-85 season at the height of the Larry Bird/Magic Johnson rivalry, and it ended after the 1999-00 campaign — two seasons following Michael Jordan's second retirement from the Chicago Bulls after winning six championships in the 1990s. Barkley played against many of the most talented players the sport has ever seen, but when asked about the best player he ever had to guard, one Boston Celtics legend stood above the rest.

Poll Results: What’s the Best Call of Duty Game Ever?

The Call of Duty franchise has had plenty of memorable moments, from All Ghillied Up to that weird time we had to press X/F to pay respects — we didn’t say those moments were necessarily good. But in this case, what’s good is up to you. We want to know how the Call of Duty games rank on your list.

And you delivered! Here are the results:

The Best Call of Duty Games, Ranked by You

You picked Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (not to be confused with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered, here’s an explainer on all that). It’s pretty funny a reboot of this landmark title was announced this very week! It was pretty close there with Modern Warfare 2, and Black Ops trailed both significantly in third place.

The Best Nintendo Switch Deals Right Now

The Nintendo Switch has notoriously held its value since its release, bar Black Friday when Amazon reduced it to £249. If you’re one of those that are looking to get a Nintendo Switch on the cheap but didn’t jump in on the Black Friday deal, you’ve come to the right place.

I’ve highlighted my picks on what I feel are the best and cheapest Nintendo Switch bundles, games and accessories below (updated weekly).

GoT Season 8 Premiere’s Best Stunt Was… Nuts for Kit Harrington

Kit Harington experienced a rather uncomfortable incident while filming one of the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere’s biggest stunts.

Spoiler warning: episode details follow this video.

While filming the first episode of Season 8’s dragon riding sequence, Kit Harington was required to mount a ‘buck’; a mechanical moving stand-in for a dragon that is later transformed via the magic of visual effects. But while riding the buck during one take, Harrington suffered a… painful incident.

“There is a bit where Jon almost falls off the dragon and swings around really violently,” he describes in a YouTube video on the official Game of Thrones channel. “And my right ball got trapped and I didn’t have time to say ‘stop’.”

Karl Lagerfeld’s Best Chanel Red Carpet Looks of All Time

Karl Lagerfeld has designed no shortage of memorable red carpet looks.
The late Chanel fashion designer was tasked with dressing both his muses, such as Cara Delevingne and Keira Knightley, along with A-list celebrities during awards season, including Emma Stone and Margot Robbie.

No stranger to the Met Gala red carpet, Lagerfeld was responsible for the looks for both Yara Shahidi and Lily-Rose Depp’s first times attending the annual costume event. Shahidi, for example, attended her first Met Gala last year wearing a Chanel Couture tulle dress with an intricate full-length beading.

Chanel spokeswomen, Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard, also have a long history of being dressed in Lagerfeld’s creations. Most notably, Moore picked up her first Academy Award in 2015 wearing a Chanel Couture gown made with 80,000 sequins.

The 11 Best Karl Lagerfeld Quotes of All Time

Designer Karl Lagerfeld who died this morning at 85,  had a career in fashion spanning more than 60 years, touching fashion houses including Chanel, Fendi and  Chloé. Lagerfeld was known not only for his prolific fashion output, but also for his repartee, bon mots and headline-making quotes.
Full of wisdom and sharp opinions, his observations were incisive and inspiring, sometimes biting and often newsmaking. Here’s a look back at the 11 of the most memorable Karl Lagerfeld quotes:
11. On Taking Risks 

Karl Lagerfeld 

“When I took over Chanel, everybody said to me, ‘Don’t touch it. It’s dead. There’s nothing you can do.’ And I said to myself, ‘I love that people think that. Now let’s see.’” — October 2017 (WWD Honors). See the complete interview here.
10. On Competition

“Is there something healthier than competition? If not, you fall asleep and think success, and what you did, is granted. Nothing is granted in fashion, and this is what I love about fashion.” — January 2013 (WWD CEO Summit Leadership). See the complete interview here.
9. On Choupette

Pokemon Releases the Best Charizard Card Ever

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

Charizard is one of the most popular Pokemon, so it won’t surprise you to hear that cards featuring the fiery lizard are highly sought-after by collectors. However, while Charizard cards might fetch a high price on the secondary market, they have a notoriously low performance record when it comes to the actual game. Sure, you could always build a Charizard deck for fun to play against your friends, but it’d never come close to winning a competitive Pokemon TCG tournament.

That is, until now. With the release of the new expansion set Sun and Moon: Team-Up, fans of the Kanto fire starter finally have a competitively viable Charizard that is, hands down, the best ever printed.
