Looks better than I expected, but Ryan Reynolds is such a wrong choice for the voice IMO. I love em, but all I could think of was Deadpool every time he opened his mouth.

Yeah, it's hard to not hear Deadpool, considering so much of that performance is vocal. But the movie looks really good. I don't think a genuine Pokemon live-action movie would work, so mixing the Pokemon with a different story feels like a wise way to go.

Looks marginally better than Ready Player One, but that was a letdown. So not expecting much from this either. Reynolds was not the right choice to voice Pikachu. Idiotic decision whoever made it.

This has breakout all over it. 90's nostalgia is playing well right now and the twist of the usual approach was smart. Will be good counter programming though May post Avengers is an interesting release time. Would not be shocked to see a push to April.

What's this 90s nostalgia you're talking about? Did it occur this year or are you referring to 2017? I don't see any 90s nostalgic hits from this year.

Let's not forget that Power Rangers only made $85 million. Where was the 90s nostalgia on that one?

Don't think so since WB has Shazam in April.


I love Pokemon so I'm pretty excited.

Not feeling RR as the voice. When I think Pikachu I don't think a white guy with a motor mouth especially when he already does DP.

This will make more than that OW.

The 90s nostalgia was still there for Power Rangers though, hence the $40m OW before people realized the film was garbage.

Pokemon is about 100x bigger than Power Rangers and still culturally relevant thanks to the continued success of the various games (Pokemon Go was a legit phenomenon when it came out a couple of years ago).

Pokemon GO was a fad, just like Pokemon cards were 20 years prior.

Dammit. Knew nothing about this.Would have preferred a better lead, than it would have been a little more like Paul. I think it could manage a 20+ opening though now.
