The violently antagonistic cat and mouse will star in “Tom and Jerry,” a hybrid live-action and animated film that sees the two square off in an upscale New York hotel.
But as anyone who’s seen any iteration of “Tom and Jerry” knows, the cat rarely wins. In the trailer alone, Tom pinballs between two cars, is cartoonishly electrocuted, and is thrown in front of a bus by his tiny tormenter.
Michael Peña, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong co-star with the Hanna-Barbera characters. Cartoon violence ensues.
The film is scheduled for a March theatrical release.
