Latest hollywood movie Tom and Jerry did not generate enough buzz in India due to limited marketing. However, the brand value has ensured some interest wherever the film has some visibility.
In our advance booking report today, we shared how the film has followed a course from good to decent in Delhi and Mumbai, but it is lackluster elsewhere. The problem is visibility and this was also visible in our recent online survey.
As we asked our readers to say if they would watch the movie in theaters, admissions were very limited. But most of the people who took the survey answered “yes”. That’s right, of the 147 votes, 51% of people said they were interested in watching Tom & Jerry in theaters this weekend. 37.4% answered “no” and the rest of the people answered “not sure”. Take a look at the survey results below:

Tom & Jerry’s star cast and voiceover artists include names like William Hanna (archival audio recordings), Frank Welker, Chloë Grace, Moretz, Michael Peña, Colin Jost, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney and Ken Jeong.
The film is scheduled for release in India on February 19 and in the United States on February 26.
In a recent interview, Ken Jeong said working in Tom & Jerry was fun because he was a fan of Michael Pena and Chloe Grace Moretz, who top the cast of the live-CGI animated comedy.
In the film, Jeong will be seen as a chef Jackie. “He’s a stressed out person with anger issues, planning the biggest wedding of his career – of his life – and everything is happening on that day,” he said of his character.
Pena tries out a hotel owner named Terence, who wants good publicity, while Moretz will be seen as event planner Kayla in the film.
The actor’s first day of filming involved a confrontation between his character, Kayla and Terence.
“It was so much fun because I’m a fan of Chloe and Michael. And I had worked with (the film’s director) Tim Story before, so we’re old friends, ”he says.
