Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first trailer of the much-anticipated live-action Pokémon film, “Detective Pikachu.”
In the film based upon the Nintendo 3DS game of the same name, Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”) plays the outspoken, hard-boiled detective Pokémon, who sets out to help Tim Goodman (Justice Smith, “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) on the case to find his missing father.
Realizing that they can mysteriously communicate with each other, the pair set out to investigate the streets of Ryme City – a sprawling metropolis where Pokémon and humans live side-by-side. Along the way, they’ll discover a unique cast of characters and unearth a plot that could destroy the city’s peaceful co-existence and threaten the entire Pokémon universe.
