Detective Pikachu (2019)
Video Game Adaptations to Look Out For
A joint collaboration of Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures, and The Pokemon Company, Detective Pikachu is based on the 3DS game of the same name. The movie sees the tiny electric detective team up with ex-trainer Tim Goodman (Justice Smith) to get to the root of the mysterious disappearance of Harry Goodman, Tim’s father and Pikachu’s former partner.
Although the first looks at the unusually hyper-realistic Pokemon left us apprehensive, this year’s latest spate of trailers has more than made up for it, showing off a world in which Pokemon have been embedded, cage fight-style Pokemon battles, and even the legendary Mewtwo himself.
Detective Pikachu comes to the big screen on May 10.
