We’re only days away from the premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and the full movie has already been leaked. The voice of the title character himself, Ryan Reynolds, alerted fans and Warner Bros. On Twitter of the ‘mistake’.

Detective Pikachu hits theaters this Friday
Detective Pikachu is still set to officially release in theaters on May 10, so the wait to see the first ever live-action Pokemon movie isn’t that much longer. Reviews hit the web last week and it seems the studio has a hit on its hands. With 65 reviews counted, Detective Pikachu sits at a 71% on Rotten Tomatoes, a rather impressive score – especially for a video game adaptation which tend to be a letdown more often than not.
Pokémon: detective Pikachu tells the story of Harry Goodman, an ace detective who goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son, Tim, to find out what happened. Along the way he makes new friends and gets a different perspective on the wonderful world that is Pokémon.
