July 21st, 2016 by bash Comments



Pokémon is coming to the big screen after news of a new live action series of films was announced by Legendary Entertainment.

Detective Pikachu is to be the first instalment in a forthcoming movie franchise, with production starting next year.

The news comes just two weeks after the release of the ‘reality’ game Pokémon Go, which has become so popular the shares in part-owner of the brand, Nintendo, rose by 25%.

Writer Max Landis is rumoured to be involved in screenplay duties with many fans hoping that actor Danny DeVito will voice the lead character.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
