When you think of the biggest rivals on TV or Film, you’re probably going to be wrong. No, it’s not Cap vs Iron Man. It’s not Vader vs Luke or Bart Simpson vs Sideshow Bob. It’s Tom and Jerry. The Cat and Mouse have been at it since 1940. What better way is there to celebrate 80 years of maiming each other than by releasing a new big screen adventure
That’s right! Tom and Jerry are back in a brand new adventure that takes the iconic duo to New York.
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.
