Ryan Reynolds celebrates Earth Day by releasing an Earth Day-themed trailer for his latest movie "Pokemon Detective Pikachu."

Set to the tune of "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, the montage-heavy preview offers a look inside the futuristic metropolis of Ryme City, which is populated with a colorful assortment of Pokemon creatures.

The film, the first ever live-action Pokemon movie, stars Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and features the voice of Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu. Kathryn Newton (Blockers) and Ken Watanabe (Godzilla) also co-star.

Smith plays Tim Goodman, a once-aspiring pokemon trainer who sets out to investigate the strange disappearance of his now-presumed dead father, an ex-police detective who was working as a local private-eye. While on his search, Tim meets his father's ex-partner, a yellow Pikachu creature (voiced by Reynolds) who claims to be a world-class detective. Incidentally, Tim is also the only human in Ryme City, who can fully understand what Pikachu is actually saying.

Directed by Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Monsters vs. Aliens), "Pokemon Detective Pikachu" arrives in theaters May 10th.

The world of Pokemon comes to life!

The first-ever live-action Pokemon movie, "POKEMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokemon brand -- one of the world's most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokemon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokemon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim (Justice Smith) to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry's former Pokemon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City -- a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokemon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world -- they encounter a diverse cast of Pokemon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokemon universe.
