'Tom & Jerry' Live-Action/Animated Hybrid Film Drops First Trailer
Tom and Jerry, the classic cartoon cat and mouse combo, are back on the big screen.
Warner Bros. on Tuesday dropped the first trailer for the self-titled film in which Tom and Jerry are animated characters while their surroundings are live-action. It is reminiscent of the groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Longtime character voice actor Frank Welker again pulls double-duty as the cartoon pair with a supporting (human) cast that includes Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Colin Jost, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney and Pallavi Sharda.
A little more than two minutes long, the preview shows the hijinks Tom and Jerry get themselves into at a fancy New York City hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century" to be held there.
The characters last appeared in a feature film in 1992's lackluster Tom and Jerry: The Movie.
The Warner Bros. film is due out in theaters next year.
