New Tom & Jerry Poster: Best of Enemies, Worst of Friends
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new Tom & Jerry poster for Tim Story’s upcoming live-action/CGI-hybrid film adaptation of the iconic animated series, featuring the titular rivals as they go on a New York City adventure. Originally scheduled for a March 5, 2021 release, the Chloë Grace Moretz-led film is currently set to debut on February 26, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max. Check out the full poster in the gallery below!
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 and 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 adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day.
Joining Tom & Jerry are Chloë Grace Moretz (The Addams Family) as Kayla, Michael Peña (Ant-Man & the Wasp) as Terrance, Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Colin Jost (Saturday Night Live) and Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians). It will also feature Pallavi Sharda (Lion), Jordan Bolger (Peaky Blinders), Patsy Ferran (Darkest Hour), Nicky Jam, Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man and the Wasp), and Lil Rel Howery (The Angry Birds Movie 2).
Tim Story is directing for Warner Bros. from a script by Kevin Costello. The Story Company’s Sharla Sumpter Bridgett will also produce the project, while Story, Adam Goodman, Steven Harding, Sam Register, Jesse Ehrman and Allison Abbate are attached as executive producers.
The film will feature an animated (and silent) Tom and Jerry, whose shenanigans will take place in a live-action world. This is the first in a series of similarly designed projects from WB with the others being Space Jam 2 from producers Ryan Coogler, Maverick Carter and LeBron James; Scooby Doo, which Chris Columbus is currently overseeing; and a Wile E. Coyote vs. ACME hybrid feature, with Chris McKay from the LEGO universe as creative supervisor.
