As we reported HERE a little while ago about a new film featuring the cat and mouse we now have the the first time a Tom and Jerry trailer! One of the most beloved rivalries in history is reignited when Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner to hire Tom to get rid of him, in director Tim Story’s “Tom & Jerry The Movie.” The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.
An eye-popping blend of classic animation and live action, Tom and Jerry’s new big-screen adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day! (we’re not so sure about that last bit as we want to see them at loggerheads but we’ll see!)
Apart from the cat and mouse the film has a great cast that includes Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong and is directed by Tim Story (“Fantastic Four,” “Think Like a Man,” “Barbershop”) and produced by Chris DeFaria (“The LEGO Movie 2,” “Ready Player One,” “Gravity”). The Tom and Jerry trailer is a mixture of live action and animation (a technique that goes back to films such as ‘Mary Poppins’ and ‘Bedknobs & Broomsticks’) and looks good fun with even a Batman reference thrown in and we’re sure there’s bound to be a load of Easter Eggs in there too for the eagle eyed.
Tom & Jerry The Movie will be released nationwide by Warner Bros. Pictures with a release date to be confirmed – like every film in 2020 its hangs on when we’ll see the end of kung flu!
