Detective Pikachu

It seems like only yesterday fans had mixed reactions to Ryan Reynolds voicing the most famous Pokemon character. While the film’s teaser introduced us to a very furry version of the Pokemon species, it’s also a detective that can actually talk more than just scream “pika pika!” in a high pitched voice. Whatever the case, Detective Pikachu is a widely anticipated film for both and new fans alike. The movie will be released this May 10.
