Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer of their upcoming Tom And Jerry live-action film. The film, however, will feature the main characters as their animated versions with a talented ensemble cast including Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong.
The titular characters are animated in a style similar to the original television show, which gives the trailer a very Space Jam and original Sonic trailer, however, not everyone is happy with the approach. The trailer reveals that the duo has moved on to the big city and will be living their lives at a big hotel. We also see Chloë Grace Moretz at the hotel as an event planner hired by the hotel to organize the wedding of the century, but the hotel has a mouse problem. Chloë then brings in Tom to remove a pesky mouse Jerry from the hotel.
Tom and Jerry Move To The Big City
Written by Kevin Costello and based on Joseph Barbera and William Hanna's classic characters, Tom and Jerry, the film ensures there is plenty of cartoon violence as Tom contrives various schemes to sneak up on Jerry, only to fail on numerous occasions with Chloë by his side. The movie synopsis also hints that all three must join hands as someone on the hotel's staff is actively working against all three of them. After 80 years of rivalry, the cat and mouse duo will be seen working together.
