Star Cineplex is going to release the animated comedy 'Tom & Jerry' and horror adventure film 'The Reckoning' on Friday, February 26
Tom and Jerry - the widely popular cartoon – which turned 80 last year and has been an inseparable part of our collective childhood memory, is going to grace the big screen now.
The latest feature, a mix of live-action and animation, penned by Kevin Costello and directed by Tim Story, will see Tom and Jerry – usually at each other’s throats - working together to save the day.
The cast includes Chloë Grace Moretz (The Addams Family), Michael Peña (Cesar Chavez, American Hustle, Ant-Man), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Colin Jost (How to be Single, Saturday Night Live), and Ken Jeong (Crazy Rich Asians).
William Hannah and Joseph Barbera created this American franchise, and the series first appeared in the Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) cartoon, Puss Gets the Boot. It revolves around a comical love-hate relationship between a house cat and a mouse.
The Reckoning, directed by Neil Marshall, who also made the horror classic ‘The Descent,’ revolves around Evelyn, a young widow haunted by the recent suicide of her husband Joseph and who gets falsely accused of being a witch by her landlord after she rejects his advances, according to IMBD.
Both of these films will hit Star Cineplex on February 26.
