The first live-action movie to explore the world of Pokémon stars… Ryan Reynolds? The Deadpool star voices Pikachu, the furry yellow icon of the Pokémon franchise. When detective Harry Goodman disappears, his son Tim (Justice Smith) teams up with Harry’s partner to track down the missing man. That partner is none other than the wise-cracking Pikachu, with whom Tim is unexpectedly able to communicate.
Detective Pikachu is a surprising and hilarious adventure on the neon-lit streets of Ryme City, where humans and Pokémon live side by side. As Tim and Pikachu meet new Pokémon during their search for Tim’s father, they uncover a conspiracy that could unravel their peaceful existence. Kathryn Newton (Lady Bird) also appears as the cub reporter Lucy, who is on the trail of a big story; while Ken Watanabe (Godzilla) plays Lt. Yoshida.
