WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Tom, a cat, and Jerry, a mouse, are long-time rivals who soon go their separate ways. They end up in New York, where Jerry takes up residence in a fancy hotel, which is about to host an important wedding. Desperate to avoid any incident, the hotel employs young staff member Kayla (Moretz) to take care of Jerry – which leads to her hiring Tom to catch the mouse, re-igniting their feud…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

The classic cartoon duo brings their 80-year fight to the real world for the first time in a slapstick-heavy hybrid of live-action actors and stylised CGI (designed to look like their original 2D selves), which is set to delight old fans and enchant new ones.
