Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to films leaking. The actor helped push along the making of Deadpool after test-footage for the film was leaked online and went viral. But the newest "leak" the actor is commenting on is actually just an adorable advertisement for Detective Pikachu.
Reynolds posted a tweet complaining about how someone apparently leaked the entire upcoming Pokemon film to YouTube. The video opens with the typical Warner Bros. fanfare, introducing the studios that worked together on the movie. But after only about a minute of screentime from the film, the video cuts to an extended loop of Pikachu dancing to peppy music.
The full video is over an hour and a half long, almost entirely of Pikachu dancing happily with his detective hat on. In a neat little connection to the film, the full-length video is remarkably close to the complete runtime of the actual Detective Pikachu.
Directed by Rob Letterman from a script written by Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit, Detective Pikachu stars Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe and the voice of Ryan Reynolds. The film opens in theaters on May 10.
