Tom and Jerry have seemingly had a beef since the 1940s. First animated during World War II in an iconic series of short slapstick cartoons, the lads are now resurfacing on our screens in a feature film called simply Tom and Jerry.
If you think it’s about time to introduce your own little animals to these beloved, ever-warring characters, the film is is arriving in Australian cinemas on April 1.
As with most live-action/animation hybrid films, the human cast of this very-2021 Tom and Jerry seem very game to witness all the animated protagonist’s destruction. In this case, Chloë Grace Moretz plays a grifter who finds herself working for an upscale hotel, managed by Rob Delaney, Michael Peña and chef Ken Jeong.
When Jerry’s arrival threatens a huge event taking place at the hotel, Moretz tries to “leverage millions of years of evolution” by assigning piano-playing cat Tom to do the job. And by “job” I mean brutally murdering Jerry before he causes further mayhem.
April Fools Day is the perfect date for this fun and slick new Tom and Jerry caper to come out.
