The first live-action Pokemon movie was announced Monday with a trailer and none other than Ryan Reynolds voicing the iconic Pokemon, Pikachu.

The Detective Pikachu movie's eclectic cast consists of Golden Globe nominee Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) as the titular talking Pokemon with Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai), Suki Waterhouse (Assassination Nation), Rita Ora (Fifty Shades Freed) and Golden Globe victor Bill Nighy (Gideon's Daughter).

Warner Brothers Pictures released the first trailer for the highly anticipated film overnight and as expected, people are already going insane over it.

Mewtwo made an appearance in the Detective Pikachu video game and had a central plot in the core mystery of why Pokemon were going on rampages through Ryme City. "Just didn't think it'd be this soon". Also included in the cast are Billionaire Boys Club actress Suki Waterhouse, Rita Ora of the Fifty Shades film series, and the legendary Japanese actor Ken Watanabe. It is all set to hit the big screens on May 10, 2019.

"The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son, Tim, to find out what happened", reads a release from Warner Bros. He gets help from his dad's former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking super-sleuth.

In a world full of Pokémon, Reynolds as Pikachu feels lonely as no one can understand his words until Justice Smith comes along.
