Here’s the official synopsis of Tom & Jerry, from Warner Bros.:
One of the most beloved rivalries in historical past is reignited when Jerry strikes into New York City’s most interesting lodge 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 ceremony and presumably the lodge itself. But quickly, an excellent greater drawback arises: a diabolically formidable staffer conspiring in opposition to all three of them. An eye-popping mix of basic animation and stay motion, Tom and Jerry’s new big-screen journey stakes new floor for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work collectively to save the day.
