I’ve already discussed the film “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” over on my Lifestyle Entertainment website “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” by sharing its first two trailers (seen HERE and HERE) and if you haven’t yet enjoyed that weirdness I cannot stress it any more emphatically that you do since its some wild stuff. Today, the film opens up in theaters everywhere and I think that this is going to be one crazy ride. Let’s review the premise and casting after the theatrical poster.
The Premise: In the Pokémon universe, Tim Goodman is a former Pokémon Trainer and the son of prominent detective Harry Goodman. When his father disappears in a car crash, Tim arrives in Ryme City and ends up meeting Detective Pikachu who was Harry’s former Pokémon partner. Tim is somehow able to understand the Detective, and they reluctantly team up to find Harry and uncover the mystery surrounding his disappearance. Chasing clues through the streets of Ryme City, the dynamic duo soon discover a devious plot that poses a threat to the Pokémon universe.

I’ll admit that I really didn’t know much about this upcoming film “I, Frankenstein” which opens today but when I saw the trailers felt that it reminded me enough of the “Underworld” trilogy of films that it would be up my alley. I am a big fan of the Horror and Science-Fiction genres of film and this had a little bit of superhero action to its premise. At least this is what I thought when I saw the trailer.
Premise: Frankenstein’s monster, named Adam and having taken the surname of his creator, becomes involved in a war between two immortal clans in an ancient city; written and directed by Stuart Beattie, based on the graphic novel and original screenplay by Kevin Grevioux (taken from the film’s Wikipedia entry).

Another part that appealed to me was the idea of Frankenstein as an action here. We saw that not too long ago in DC Comics “The New 52” title “Frankenstein, Agent of S.H.A.D.E.” so I feel this would be a fun film to see. Will you be checking out this film when it opens today or perhaps wait until on Netflix or HBO.
