Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment have announced the release date for Detective Pikachu based on games and comics about Pokémon. The tape will be released on May 10, 2019.
This decision is rather risky, because a week earlier, the movie “Avengers 4” will be released, which will collect the entire cinema box office during the first weeks of rental. And on May 17, 2019, "John Wick 3" will be released, so Pikachu will have a very hard time.
Detective Pikachu will feature Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Catherine Newton and other actors. Reynolds using the capture and image processing systems will play the Pokemon. According to the plot, the father of the main character is kidnapped, and he is forced to resort to the help of Detective Pikachu in order to find him. The director was appointed Rob Letterman, who directed the cartoon “Monsters Against Aliens” and the fantastic film “Horror”.
