A new trailer for Detective Pikachu has been released. Ryan Reynolds stars as the titular Pokemon who miraculously is able to communicate with human Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), whose father has mysteriously vanished. I smell a team-up!
I like this trailer more than the first one. There’s more revealed about what exactly these two are going to get up to in this movie. Reynolds is slowly growing on me as the electric furball, even if his voice still sounds weird coming out of a Pikachu. I just hope he doesn’t go full-Deadpool in his film, because that’s not exactly something I want to see.
What did you think of the trailer?
Synopsis: 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.
Detective Pikachu hits theaters May 10, 2019.
