February 26, 2021: Premiere of Tom and Jerry: The Movie

One of the most beloved rivalries in history continues in this live-action hybrid film from the Warner Bros. Animation Group. When Jerry moves into New York’s best hotel on the eve of the “Wedding of the Century”, the event planner is determined to get rid of him so that Tom can get the job! But the cat and mouse fight that followed threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and maybe even the hotel itself. Meanwhile, a devilishly ambitious co-worker conspires against all three and forces the cat-and-mouse duo to do the unthinkable: work together to save the day. The movie isn’t just for cat (and mouse) lovers – Spike the Bulldog also makes an appearance! Directed by Tim Story, movie stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong will be released on HBO Max and in theaters on February 26, 2021.
