Ryan Reynolds trolls perfectly with fake ‘Detective Pikachu’ leak
Ryan Reynolds continues to play things perfectly.
As if his handsome looks and genuine good-guy persona isn’t frustrating enough for some of us (ahem), the actor trolled fans by leaking the full version of his upcoming film, “Detective Pikachu.”
Only it’s not really.

“Um…. Attn @DetPikachuMovie @warnerbros,” Reynolds tweeted.
The link Reynolds used starts out like normal — the logos of Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures and The Pokemon Company. The picture fades in on Justice Smith — who plays Tim Goodman in the film — walking down a street. Everythign looks to be legit.
And then, Smith hears music playing and glances over. Cut to Pikachu dancing.
And for the next hour and 46 minutes that’s all you get: the little yellow dude dancing.
Yep, just dancing. On and on for nearly two hours.
Again, Reynolds got us.
Well played, Ryan. Well played.
