I'm actually in this film!

They recorded some crowd chanting for the Charizard battle scene at the Pokemon World Championships a few months ago. Good times.

I remember when they announced this I was utterly dismissive of it. Thought it would be utterly shite.

Now I can't think of a film I want to see more apart from Avengers 4.

Check out some of our stuff!

I think it looks like it could be a great movie, and will go see.

The pokemon could be improved though...

The main issue with the Pokemon is seeing them in a realistic setting, rather than the usual cartoony/anime style we have come to associate... Mr Mime looks utterly terrifying for example...

That being said, I am entirely on board...

Yes but what did you think of it in the trailer?

Pikachu in the top image looks like he's about to rape someone.

Pikachu's smooth look was fine in the anime, where realistic detail isn't important, but in a live action/CG combo movie with a slightly more realistic bent you have to expect some visual changes.

I think he looks adorable.

It’s a wild animal, not a doll! I’m very much okay with the soulless look.

Really? It looks like a very clever way of doing a live action Pokemon film-mixing in comedy and Ryan Reynolds will appeal to a wider audience than just kids. I think this has the potential to be huge.

For sure but I would have thought they'd play it safe as there's not need for them to be radical with the property. As someone else said, I expected this to be Ryan Reynolds live actions with a CGI Pikachu sidekick doing funny crazy stuff.

The top one trespasses the uncanny valley where's the bottom version is deliberately designed to have human characteristics but only to the degree where it becomes endearing.

The film version of Pikachu looks very cute, actually looks like what I'd expect a real life Pikachu to look like. Fluffy fur due to the electricity running through it's body.

Yeah I much prefer the film version there.

I'm on the fence about how I feel about a fluffy Pikachu.

I think I'll have to see the film 8 times next year to make my mind up.

I think buying a lot of pointless merchandising might also help make up your mind.
