Wonder Woman 1984, Tom & Jerry premiere on HBO GO
WITH cinemas still closed in the Philippines, two blockbuster movies will stream straight on to TV screens and mobile devices in the Philippines on HBO GO — Wonder Woman 1984 from April 21 and Tom & Jerry from June 4. Wonder Woman’s next big adventure finds her riding lighting across the sky, donning wings of gold, and chasing a dream while in pursuit of two formidable foes: Max Lord and The Cheetah. From director Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot in the title role, Wonder Woman 1984 takes viewers back in time to the 1980s, where the fate of the world is on the line once again, and only Wonder Woman can save it. The film also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Kristen Wiig as the Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope, and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta. Wonder Woman, the prequel to Wonder Woman 1984, is also available on HBO GO, along with other DC Extended Universe films including Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Man Of Steel, Suicide Squad, Shazam, Joker and Birds Of Prey And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn. Meanwhile, Tom & Jerry is a mix of classic animation and live action featuring the iconic cat and mouse frenemies. When Jerry moves into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” this forces Kayla, a desperate wedding planner to hire Tom to get rid of him. The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself. Directed by Tim Story, Tom & Jerry stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Colin Jost, Rob Delaney, Pallavi Sharda, Jordan Bolger, Patsy Ferran, Nicky Jam, Bobby Cannavale, Lil Rel Howery, and Ken Jeong.
