Full-sized felines have been no match for Captain Cruise after one day online.

Thursday saw the release of two epic trailers for two very different films. The first being the first look at the long-rumored and finally-realized sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. Tom Cruise reprises his role of Maverick in the aptly titled Top Gun: Maverick. In between shots of Cruise getting dressed-down by Ed Harris, jets whiz by, motorcycles rev on the runway, and there’s more singing in the bar. RIP Goose.

Elsewhere, there’s CATS. Real-life, singing and dancing cats.

As a towering version of “Memory” is sung by Jennifer Hudson, CATS shows Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, James Corden, Judi Dench, and ballet star Francesca Hayward slinking around in full cattire. The images drew a thousand instant opinions from the internet, ranging from hyperventilating excitement to pure terror.

With a head start of just a few hours, Top Gun: Maverick has felt the need, the need to speed by the trailer for CATS. As of Friday morning the sequel sneak peek has amassed 6 million more views than singing feline flick.

We can’t wait for both, with CATS arriving December 20th, and Top Gun: Maverick in theaters June 26, 2020.
