Detective Pikachu movie???

winstein

Justice is not limited, it is a universal quality
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 shit

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

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.

The realistic Pokemon look weird and all, but I guess we could get used to in in the film. I did survive the TinTin mocap movie after all with TinTin being rendered a bit uncannily.
 
Looks fine.

It's like a middle ground between the standard look and those grotesque hyper realistic renditions.

I'm just glad it's not just Gen 1 pandering, that was a big fear, but I was glad to see Greninja.

Some of the pokemon, like Pikachu actually look pretty good. But Jigglypuff with fur is unsettling. I always imagined it had the texture of a balloon.
