A debut trailer for Tom and Jerry: The Movie has been released. Starring the iconic cat and mouse enemies in their first live-action adventure, this one finds the adorable rodent Jerry moving into one of New York City’s greatest hotels on the eve of “the wedding of the century”.
“We have a mouse problem.”
To combat this pest, the hotel’s management employs relentless chaser Tom to sort him out once and for all.
In the trailer, we get our first glimpse of Kick-Ass’ star Chloë Grace Moretz, Catastrophe star Rob Delaney, MCU favourite Michael Peña and Ken Jeong mixing it up with the animated characters.
The movie is directed by Ride Along’s Tim Story and produced by Ready Player One’s Chris DeFaria.
Previously, Peña waxed lyrical about his experience working on the project, with particular emphasis on Moretz’s talent.
“Oh, man, that was so cool,” he said. “Sometimes, you show up on these movies and the actor is still trying to find it. I don’t know if they’re not prepared or whatever, but it happens every so often.
“But, Chloë Moretz was so on the money… She knew the script, and she was just awesome to go back and forth with.”
Tom and Jerry: The Movie is scheduled to arrive in cinemas by March 2021.
