Detective Pikachu

When it was first announced there was likely a large contingent that thought it was a joke and never would be a reality, but Warner Bros.’ Detective Pikachu film is happening and the first trailer is here. The Ryan Reynolds voiced detective version of the beloved yellow electric rodent Pokémon is on the case alongside Justice Smith’s Tim in a world where Pokémon and humans live side by side.

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

Directed by Goosebumps Rob Letterman with a script from Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman & Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch, Detective Pikachu stars Smith, Reynolds, Ken Watanabe, and Kathryn Newton. The film opens May 10, 2019.
