The new trailer for Warner Bros.’ POKÉMON Detective Pikachu was released on Tuesday. The upcoming live-action movie features Ryan Reynolds voicing the popular Nintendo character and Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) playing Pikachu's friend Tim.
The first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure follows a 21-year-old Tim as he searches for his ace detective father Harry Goodman who goes mysteriously missing. 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 (via IMDb).
Detective Pikachu will hit theaters on May 10. Check out the trailer below.
