Luke Treadway as James Bowen in 'A Street Cat Named Bob' Trailer
Sometimes it takes nine lives to save one. Sony UK has debuted a trailer for a film called A Street Cat Named Bob, based on the bestselling book about a street musician whose life is changed by an adorable stray cat named Bob. Luke Treadway plays James Bowen, a young homeless busker and recovering drug addict living on the streets of London. The cast includes Bob the Cat (the real one!), Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head, and was filmed mostly on location around Covent Garden. This looks quite charming, better than expected from that title, and it features some impressive cinematography and heartwarming moments. It could've turned out so cheesy but it actually looks pretty dang good. Take a look.
Here's the official UK trailer for Roger Spottiswoode's A Street Cat Named Bob, found on YouTube:
