About the Tom and Jerry movie
Tom and Jerry have been trying to kill each other for 80 years and now it’s time to renew the tradition, but in a more modernized version. Hence, Warner Bros has brought forward the iconic frenemies duo in a live action ‘Tom and Jerry movie’ that explores the 90’s theme blended with a pop-culture nod.
As the trailer suggests, taking place in New York, the rivalry will pick from where it was frozen.
Story line: The mischievous mouse Jerry takes residency in a classy New York hotel, right before the restaurant is up for the “wedding of the century.” Hence, the staff hires the great mouse-hunter cat Tom to eliminate his little enemy. As the two old-time rivals come face to face, the hotel experiences only one thing, enormous Chaos.
Also, per the trailer, the duo is not limited to the location only, as they are spotted exploring the lavish state, chasing each other and causing havoc on their way.
Moreover, as we are already aware, it happens rarely that Tom defeats his tiny tormentor. Similarly, the Tom and Jerry movie also restores the poor Tom being whitewashed by the brown naughty mouse at multiple occasions, bringing the glitters of the show back to life.
The Tom and Jerry movie revolves in human world, and has got a pretty stellar human cast too. The central cast members include Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Peria, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong. Furthermore, the script of this forthcoming blockbuster has been penned down by Kevin Costello, whereas Tim Story serves as the director.
Talking about her role in the Tom and Jerry movie, Chloe Grace Moretz revealed,
“I’ve been watching the Tom and Jerry cartoon for as long as I can remember. It was a mainstay in my household growing up and we would always crowd around to watch their silly antics play out on screen.”
