Psyduck completely stole the show for me.
DETECTIVE PIKACHU 2 Will Reportedly Be The Next Film In The Franchise, Spinoffs To Follow
In case it hasn't been mentioned, I would just like to definitively state a Pikachu saying "I'm gonna grab a knife" is objectively a top-10 cinema moment of all time.
"It has also been reported by GWW that a Red and Blue adaptation is in the works"
If they are working on a red and blue adaptation, Im down for a Detective Pikachu sequel for now although would Reynolds be in the next one? Theres no more talking Pikachu so how will that work? I cant see Justice being a draw.
whatever they do just dont fuck it up and increase your budget now. Its only made 187mil on a 150mil budget. With marketing it probably wont be that profitable.
This one ended with Justice and Reynolds back together so I would say it’s a safe bet that both will be in it.
I was hoping the Mewtwo spin-off would come first but I can see trying the Red/Blue spin-off first for nostalgia. As long as they get the Japanese culture aspect of Kanto right I am all for it. I don’t want to see Cerulean city with mostly non-Japanese actors in an environment like New York.
Lucy and Psyduck can be the leads easily
ooooooo Yes. Much more interested in this. Please let this be what the sequel is lol
Psyduck, My New Therapist
Definitely down for a Detective Psyduck sequel but only if it has the subtitle "By Your Psyd(uck)"
Never in my days did I think that Pikachu asking someone to smell his finger would be great cinema. What a hilarious movie!
All the more reason why directly adapting anything from the Red/Blue era makes me nervous, lol. Out of sequels & spinoffs that have been rumored, I think the Mewtwo idea is the most appealing to me, but anything dealing w/ actual Kanto is ripe for mishandling.
Professor Oak origin story film incoming.
oh hell yeah
Only if it deals with the question of why he enlists 10 year old boys to do his work for him.
This was extremely fun. Both the wife and I loved it. The CGI was incredible and it was great to see all these Pokémon that I haven’t thought of in like twenty years hah.
Also I know I remember reading something about Pikachu eating cigarettes in multiple scenes, but definitely didn’t see one in the movie.
I feel like they missed an opportunity for Pikachu to tell Psyduck “the sun’s gettin’ reall low”
Still haven't caught this yet but I really want to. Does Ryan Reynolds do a good job? Did anyone dislike him as Pikachu?
Him as Pikachu is kinda the only reason this particular movie works at all, actually
he made me want to start actually drinking coffee
Holy shit this was so much fun. The most pleasantly surprised ive been maybe ever for a movie.
"There's a moment where they start the video sequence, they cut to a trainer that seems ... he's certainly wearing a lot of red. So, that to me is, for the people that choose to interpret it as "Is this Red?" Well, he's wearing a lot of red."
This is certainly good news for those of us who want a Japanese actor portraying Red.
POKÉMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU: The Film's Writers Reveal Interesting Mewtwo & Red Easter Eggs
Movie was ok. The look of the Pokes and world was really cool. A tooonnn of dialog though for a kids movie, it was probably 80% dialog. Didn't really hold my kid's attention like I hoped since he loves the cartoon.
If Pikachu doesn't talk anymore because of the ending, how can their be a Detective Pikachu 2? I think spin offs could work now that this movie worked, but doing a direct sequel could be weird since Reynolds as Pikachu was the main draw for this one.
In hindsight, totally agree. While I really enjoyed it, the film would have benefited from maybe overworld scenes set to music, or more battles to take up dialogue time.
I haven't played the games but there's a sequel coming for that, so maybe it will build off the game sequel.
