wat.

I mean, I like Legendary Pictures but this really weird.

Does this mean we can get a crossover with Godzilla?

Well it's not Sony or Fox so there is hope.

There are a couple of questions I would like answers to:

1) What is appealing about Danny DeVito being cast as a role of Detective Pikachu??
2) What is infamous about Sony or Fox that made them less appealing for a movie producer, compared to Legendary?

Thanks for reading.

Sony and Fox for the most part don't have a very good track record when it comes to adapting certain properties.

Sony: Spiderman, The Smurfs

Fox: Fantastic Four, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield

consider the following smf: not everything that sony and fox do are complete *bleep*

consider something else: not everything from your favourite production companies are pure gold

Everyone is always talking about Danny Devito as Pikachu. But what about Nicolas Cage as Slowpoke?

Oh yeah... I almost forgot that was a thing.

I wonder if the game it's based on is going to be localized here.

Hmm, this is the first Nintendo movie besides the animated Pokemon movies since 1993's Super Mario Bros, isn't it? In any case, it looks pretty good, and I like the realistic Pokemon even if they border on being unsettling. I'm looking forward to seeing more about it.
