Wasn't there a version of Waterworld where everyone had CGI gills but they quickly changed it because it looked like everyone had neck-vaginas ?

Came for the buttholes, stayed for Sir Ian's nipples.

Also, remember that one guy was ready to put this [NSFW] up on screen, in Alien: Resurrection, until he was forced to take it out.

Clearly some post-production people have way too much time on their hands right now.

To be fair, it totally checks out.

The movie could have used more... nether grooming.

Easy enough, since it's computer animation: See? G.I.

O.k., so. There's no described video for this but (heh) I'm married to a blind Broadway fan, so I had to describe it in real time.

Based on having had to do that within the last hour or so, here's a short summary: it's set up like a standard movie trailer with a front bumper of some fake quotes from various reviewers/media outlets, celebrities, etc., about how CATS with more buttholes has long been promised, and now it's here, and they're spectacular. It's essentially the straight-ahead (or straight-behind) CATS trailer with the cats in question sporting some buttholes that are pink and over-exposed (in both relevant senses) so they really...pop, as it were, on screen. Some of the set pieces (the moon through the skylight, for example) have been replaced by stylized, computer-animated anuses as well.

In short, if you find butts funny and need a cheap laugh and have had a shit day, this is for you.

I remember what my friend said after he heard reports of a Cats patch being digitally distributed during its theatrical run,

"Couldn't they use the same technology to make the movie about spiders?"

so yeah, buttholes, I guess that's okay if it's your thing but me personally I am holding out for CatsSpiders

Gohabsgo and others, just to explain the background seen in the context links and the Vanity Fair article, evidently some additional CGI touchup was done prior to Cats' release to adjust patterns of fur and shadow that could imply cat anuses.

This transformed (in a somewhat silly way) a rumor that there was a "butthole cut" of Cats.

Seth Rogen tweeted that to his followers. Some people re-tweeted it as a parody of the social media calling for the Snyder Cut of Justice League.

A YouTube channel actually created a butthole cut of trailer, posted above. I posted the link as it seemed surreal and silly, qualities which tends to make me laugh, especially given how things currently feel so unrealistic and surreal. Sorry you were having a rough day – this was meant to inspire a laugh for people.

Part of the plot of the movie is that only Kevin Costner's character has the gills, and he still has them in the released version, as the two showings we've had attest.

"Couldn't they use the same technology to make the movie about spiders?"

I'd imagine so, for that is how tools like diff work. The only problem is that the filesize would be prohibitively large, but then, not as large as Cats cost to make.

God, that article. Tom Hooper sounds like a psychopath.
