Ryme City, where the upcoming Detective Pikachu will take place, was the focus of a new poster for the film, following the release of the first trailer.

Dazzling with its colors and cluttered streets teeming with possibilities, the poster is something to whet audiences’ collective appetites. Aside from the titular character being voiced by Ryan Reynolds, the film is full of fantastic talent.

Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai), Suki Waterhouse (Assassination Nation), Rita Ora (Fifty Shades Freed) and Golden Globe winner Bill Nighy (Gideon’s Daughter), round out the cast.

Kathryn Newton, a journalist, and Justice Smith team up in the film to find Smith’s kidnapped father. Rob Letterman, the director of Goosebumps, will helm Detective Pikachu, with a screenplay from Letterman and Nicole Perlman.

Detective Pikachu is set for a May 11, 2019 release.
