Tom & Jerry will now launch February 19 in cinemas in India, a full week sooner than initially introduced. Warner Bros. India revealed the brand new launch date on Thursday through its social media channels. That places the Indian launch date per week previous to the US, the place Tom & Jerry releases February 26 on (US-exclusive streaming service) HBO Max and in cinemas. In India, the hybrid live-action/ animated Tom and Jerry film will probably be accessible in English (the unique language), along with three local-language dubs: Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
However, India will not be the primary market to catch the big-screen return of the long-lasting cat and mouse duo. Tom & Jerry premieres February 10 in Netherlands, adopted by Brazil and Singapore on February 11. India is among the many subsequent wave of markets on February 19, alongside Iceland and Lithuania. Russia and Slovakia will observe on February 25, earlier than Tom & Jerry arrives within the US on February 26. Argentina, Czechia, Croatia, and Portugal observe on March 4, with Spain and France launch set for March 5. In the UK, Ireland, and Japan, Tom & Jerry is due March 19.
Of course, whether or not any of this goes in keeping with plan is determined by how the COVID-19 state of affairs fares domestically. For occasion, round 65 p.c of theatres stay closed within the US (together with the main metropolitan hubs of New York and Los Angeles). Theatres are indefinitely shut throughout the UK the place a 3rd stringent nationwide lockdown is in impact. That can also be the case in France, at the least till the tip of January. In Spain, cinemas are working at 30–50 p.c capability. But whereas Americans have the choice to observe Tom & Jerry at dwelling (on HBO Max), others don’t.

One of probably the most beloved rivalries in historical past is reignited when Jerry strikes into New York City’s best resort on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the occasion’s determined planner to rent Tom to eliminate him, in director Tim Story’s “Tom & Jerry.” The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her profession, the marriage and probably the resort itself. But quickly, a good greater downside arises: a diabolically bold staffer conspiring in opposition to all three of them. An eye-popping mix of traditional animation and reside motion, Tom and Jerry’s new big-screen journey stakes new floor for the long-lasting characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work collectively to save lots of the day.
