It seems that Japan will not be left behind on Pokemon as a new trailer for the film Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution was just released, teasing the return of the original most powerful creature in the world.
The trailer in question doesn’t give us a whole lot to work with. It talks about the debut of the original film, Pokemon: The First Movie, back in 1998. It then teases the return of Mewtwo. At first, it shows us a shot of what appears to be the character in a tank full of water. It then shows us the character flying through the sky. He initially appears to be flying alone but then it is revealed that the character is, in fact, chasing Mew.
The full trailer and the Tweet that was attached to it can be seen below.

The trailer doesn’t tell us a lot but it is known that the film is a direct remake of the franchise’s first theatrical film, Pokemon: The First Movie – Mewtwo Strikes Back. The plot of the original film revolved around Mewtwo as it found the most trainers throughout the world, kidnapping their Pokemon before cloning them and trying to destroy the world. How closely this new film will follow its predecessor is currently unknown.
What do you all make of this news? Are you eager to revisit your childhood with a remake of Pokemon: The First Movie? Would you be more interested in seeing a continuation of Mewtwo’s story? How will it compare with Detective Pikachu? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here is the synopsis for the original film:

Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution is set to be released on July 12th of 2019 in Japan.
New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking “Next”.

Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
