Ryan Reynolds Shares a TV Spot for DETECTIVE PIKACHU - "Let's Do This!"
Ryan Reynolds has released a new promo spot for Legendary Pictures’ upcoming Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu. The new spot seems to feature some new footage from the film, which fans seem to be getting more and more excited about.
While I wasn’t initially looking forward to this movie, the more I’ve seen from it, the more I’ve warmed up to it. It looks like it’ll be a fun movie to take the kids to. I’m sure it it will deliver some fun and adventurous Pokemon entertainment!
In a world where people collect pocket-size monsters (pokemon) to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent monster who seeks to be a detective.
Reynolds (Deadpool) takes on the role of Pikachu, and he is joined by Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies), Ken Watanabe (Inception), Suki Waterhouse (Revenge), Rita Ora (Fifty Shades Freed), and Bill Nighy (Gideon’s Daughter).
The story of Detective Pikachu centers around Smith’s character’s father getting kidnapped. He teams up with Pikachu (Reynolds) to help find him. Newton plays a journalist who helps them on their quest. Ken Watanabe will play a new character created for the film called Detective Yoshida.
Detective Pikachu is directed by Goosebumps director Rob Letterman from a script written by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls). Detective Pikachu will be the first film in a planned franchise centering on the character.
Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, 2019.
