I’ve never been a Pokémon fan. Nor have I really been a Ryan Reynolds fan. So you can color me very surprised because I’m actually intrigued by this latest trailer for Detective Pikachu . It looks fun, family-friendly, colorful and genuinely amusing. Yes, I want to see a Pokémon movie. These are all sentences I never thought I’d write.
See for yourself:
You can’t deny that it’s a damn good looking film. It might not be great but it certainly looks great. The animation, the character and production design - it all looks supremely polished. And, shoot, Ryan Reynolds’s voice works as Pikachu. It fits! And the little yellow dude looks so cute! Again, these sentences are shocking me as I write them.
I’m willing to admit I was wrong. Detective Pikachu looks good. What a world.
The film hits theaters on May 10 and you can bet it’s going to absolutely dominate the box office.
