I am taking this report with many grains of salt, but apparently, a test screening for the upcoming movie Detective Pikachu went really well. SMB reports that the test audience was more than satisfied after seeing the current edit of the film.

Ryan Reynolds takes the helm as a CGI Pikachu, apparently playing his part very well. The report said Reynolds and his partner Tim Goodman, played by Justice Smith, do a great job together. Filled to the brim with easter eggs, the report shines a very positive light on the video game movie.
