It’s clear that Warner Brothers Pictures had some extra money to blow on this one pre-pandemic and it’s probably not going to pay off. I guarantee you haven’t heard about this new Tom and Jerry trailer that’s been released. That’s right, our dear cartoon friends Tom and Jerry are coming to the real world in 2021. The movie was originally slated for December 2020 released, but with the COVID pandemic that didn’t happen. The trailer did drop in mid-November and is just starting to make its rounds. But the general consensus is, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? The trailer makes it feel like it’s just one GIANT episode of Tom and Jerry. It stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost, and Ken Jeong. One of the most notorious rivalries in cartoon 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. While it does bring the cartoon characters we love to life on the big screen, it begs to be asked, does it really need to be on the big screen? Will it even be good? This trailer doesn’t have me sold. I thought no one in the right mind would want to see over an hour-long episode of Tom & Jerry, but then my husband said he would after seen the trailer. But only on two conditions, if it was free and available On-Demand. Thankfully HBO Max has already confirmed that it will be released on the streaming service next year. Check out the trailer for yourself and let me know what you are thinking of this new movie.
