Warner Bros.’s Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is one of the biggest upcoming releases this year and it is set to hit theaters right after Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame begins to “barely” die down at the box office. Though the Marvel film has been getting all the limelight due to its nearing release this month, it isn’t stopping WB from promoting their upcoming Pokemon movie.
Earlier today, the studio sent over 35 new hi-res stills from Pokemon: Detective Pikachu to PursueNews. The images feature various Pokemon such as Charizard, Cubone, Snubbull, Lickitung, Bulbasaur Psyduck and many more along with a few new stills of Pikachu.
Some of the other images also show the cast in characters such as Suki Waterhouse as Ms. Norman, Kathryn Newton as Lucy Stevens, Chris Geere as Roger Clifford, and Karan Soni as Jack.
We also get our first look at Rita Ora as Dr. Ann Lauren. Earlier this week, the singer released a new video song for Detective Pikachu titled “Carry On”. You can find the new stills and video song below.
The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. As Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu voiced by Ryan Reynolds decides to aid in the investigation. As fans would have already noticed in the trailer, Tim is the only human who can talk with Detective Pikachu, so the two decide to join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is expected to face fierce competition at the box office from Avengers: Endgame which would be on the third week of its run at the box office. Nonetheless, it won’t be a hurdle for Detective Pikachu as the movie is already projected to earn over $75 million domestically in the first three days of its run. Furthermore, the massive fanbase for Pokemon could be enough to push the movie to the 1$ billion mark quicker than anticipated.
Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is set to hit theaters on May 10, 2019.
