“Tom & Jerry” the movie is now here from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment! My husband and I have fond memories of watching “Tom & Jerry” cartoons as kids. This new movie is a creative film that integrates computer-animated animals in a live-action world. Although you’ll see familiar friends, there will be new characters as well. We enjoyed introducing our favorite cat and mouse duo to our kids while watching a whole new adventure together.
You can expect the funny, destructive chases that we all miss and love. True to the original cartoons, there were no words spoken between these two rivals because their actions and expressions said it all. Tom and Jerry’s personalities were just as adorable in this movie as we have remembered them from our childhood. In the midst of being enemies, there was a splash of friendly moments, that will be sure to make you smile. This film integrated the typical Tom & Jerry feud into a hotel setting, where an important event needs to be kept under control.
On May 18, “Tom & Jerry” arrives on Premium Video on Demand (PVOD), Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. It will be available to own in high definition and standard definition from select digital retailers including Amazon, FandangoNOW, Apple TV, PlayStation, Vudu, Xbox and others. “Tom & Jerry” will also be available on Movies Anywhere.
One of the most beloved rivalries in 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, in director Tim Story’s “Tom and Jerry.” The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding and possibly the hotel itself. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.
The film is directed by Tim Story (“Fantastic Four,” “Think Like a Man,” “Barbershop”) and stars Chloë Grace Moretz (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” “The Addams Family”), Michael Peña (“Cesar Chavez,” “American Hustle,” “Ant-Man”), and Colin Jost (“How to be Single,” TV’s “Saturday Night Live”).
BLU-RAY & DVD
The over one hour of special features were great to watch and gave a lot of insight into how they made this film. Some of the deleted scenes (in our opinion) would have been nice to keep in the movie. Fortunately, now we can see them in our DVD features anytime! We enjoyed watching Inside the Wedding of Ben and Preeta and learned about what needs to be done to make a destruction scene work, including how many outtakes it usually needs. It was also interesting to see the real life set of a half animated movie. The props and set ups needed to make the animated friends join the real world in the film is very creative. Don’t forget to check out all the gag reels too!
