The Tom & Jerry movie trailer is here. Warner Bros. has unveiled a two-minute first look at its first Tom and Jerry movie in nearly three decades, which finds the iconic duo in real-world New York. Tom and Jerry are still animated, but everything else is live-action. It’s a little weird and takes getting used to — kind of like with Sonic the Hedgehog — but Tom & Jerry tries to make it go down slightly easier by making all animals animated. The Tom & Jerry trailer sets up the film’s premise, and gives us a lot of Jerry’s antics at the expense of Tom, which is what audiences are here for after all.
An Indian wedding is about to take place at a prestigious New York hotel — Michael Peña’s character tells us the hotel has hosted “four presidents, three popes, two kings” — where Chloë Grace Moretz’s event planner Kayla applies for a job. At her interview, Rob Delaney’s hotel manager DuBros tells her that they have a “mouse problem” and Kayla promises to catch it. If only she knew what she was getting into. Her plan? Hire Tom. Oh boy. Jerry’s reaction is gold, and the cat and mouse immediately get at each other’s throats.
The rest of the to and jerry. trailer is made up of Jerry playing all sorts of pranks on Tom, evading her on the streets of New York with the help of a drone — Jerry has arrived in the 21st century — and causing a general ruckus at the wedding. The Tom & Jerry trailer song is Lizzo’s 2019 retro-inspired funk pop track “Juice”.
