It looks like the Detective Pikachu film is ready to blow audiences’ minds, according to a prominent director.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who directed Kong: Skull Island, has apparently seen the movie early – and has nothing to offer but praise. While videogame movie adaptations have had a history of flopping in the past (and possibly in the future), Jordan said that this will not be the case with Detective Pikachu! Check out his glowing comments below.
A wild JORD appeared!#DetectivePikachu uses MIND BLOWN.
It’s super effective!
The video game curse is broken.
Anytime a POKÉMON is on screen, you’re mesmerized by a charisma reminiscent of watching Tony Stark tinker with robots in IRON MAN.
Also, PSYDUCK steals the movie!

His words make us even more excited to see the film now! Let’s hope Jordan’s words will be shared by moviegoers, when the film finally launches in May 2019.
