    The movie's been out nearly a month, whatever moratorium there was on spoilers in this thread is long expired.

    I do have a feeling the home release of Detective Pikachu will be around August or September.

    So the making-of book has been out a couple of weeks now or something like that (maybe a month, I dunno), and today my copy came in. It's a gorgeous book right off the bat, it's thick, has a cool sleeve, it's well-laid out, and it has some neat little memorabilia tucked away inside the pages. Been reading it off and on today because it's a lot to take in, but I adored the production news these last few months so much I just had to have it. Its U.S. retail price is $85, but it's worth it if you're interested in it. I can relay things from it if needs be, maybe have a couple of pictures here and there if anyone's interested in the details.

    For starters, this really cool concept art is directly inside the cover when you first open it:

    Saw the movie

    Much like the SM anime, the main pokémon with the most screentime looks absolutely atrocious

    Human wrinkles do not belong on a Pokémon's face and seeing it in motion for an hour was nauseating

    Also, the tail was far too fluffy and the overall fur should've been maybe half an inch shorter

    All the other pokémon looked good and Misty wasn't as annoying as her anime counterpart

    Or "Lucy" as they insist on calling her for some reason

    It's weird to even compare Lucy with Misty, when Lucy is more or less Emilia.

    Who's Emilia?

    BenLee really not taken Captain Obvious

    She was pretty much a counterpart to Lucy for Detective Pikachu on 3ds

    That wasn't SUPPOSED to be Misty. Lucy is basically a composite of Emilia and Meiko from the Detective Pikachu game.

    Movie made $430 million WW. Solid for a first time especially with a monster like Endgame still doing what it did at the box office. Good start for the PCU.

    I saw the movie a week after the release. The movie was so funny and entertaining! The attention to details and the creative way the Pokémon blended into the real world was amazing. Here's hoping for a sequel or a Nintendo Cinematic Universe.

    anjunajake you were the sun & moon to me

    Now that some time has passed, is it safe to call this movie an over all success? Can we expect a sequel for sure?

    I view it as such, it made quite a bit of money. Hopefully. It would be nice if there was one.

    TheWanderingMist Daikuro, Keeper Of The Gates Ambitious

    I'd call it the most successful video game movie of all time, actually.

    To a degree.

    For sure? No.

    When I went to see the film in the nearby cinema a while ago, there were just two other people watching. I liked it that way though since fewer people often means less noise. I liked the film so much that I'm definitely going to buy it as a DVD/Blu-ray too once it's released.

    Pay no mind to BCVM2 a sequel is already confirmed. Not just by the outlets greenlighting it but also the crew announcing on Twitter that they're back for the sequel. Ryan has also read a script for the sequel.

    A sequel is happening.

    You can write a sequel.

    But not really go through with it without an official trailer.

    Only the possibility is there, but it isn't written on stone yet.

    ....Um dude that's not how it works. It first has to be FILMED before anything. A trailer is promotion for the film, nothing else.

    It's actually pretty much written in stone, why people ignore it I have no idea.

    Is there any real proof it is being filmed, then?
