Warner Bros. has unveiled the first trailer for the live-action Tom & Jerry, The new movie will bring the animated cat and mouse to the real world.
The trailer starts with Tom and Jerry apparently making peace before it grows immediately clear that things haven’t changed between the famous cat and mouse. We then quickly find Jerry holed up at the New York City hotel until Tom is chosen to help take care of the mouse problem.
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 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.
The movie is directed by Tim Story, Tom & Jerry stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost, and Ken Jeong. The movie will hit theaters on March 5, 2021.
