Like the game it's based on, Detective Pikachu follows the story of Tim (Justice Smith), the son of a famous private detective whose father has gone missing. Tim can understand Pokemon, and he teams up with Pikachu to investigate his father's disappearance.

It's directed by Rob Letterman, who has experience directing films that mix live-action and CG having directed the Jack Black movie Gulliver's Travels. It also stars Kathryn Newton (Blockers), Ken Watanabe (Godzilla, Inception), and Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows).

Detective Pikachu hits theatres on May 10.
