TOHO launched a trailer on Wednesday to reveal that Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet film will now release in Japan on April 16, 2021. The film is delayed from its original date of April 17, 2020, due to COVID-19. However, TOHO later announced the film’s new opening date as April 2021. Here’s a link to the official trailer:
Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan or Detective Conan: The Silver Bullet is the 24th film in the franchise. The film focuses on the FBI agent Shuichi Akai, his younger brother and professional shōgi player Shukichi Haneda, his younger sister and high school detective Masumi Sera, his mother Mary Sera, and Conan Edogawa himself.
The story in a gist is:
“Japan is celebrating the upcoming World Sports Games (WSG), the world’s largest sporting event, in Tokyo. The “Japanese Bullet,” the world’s first vacuum-tube super-conducting linear train built with the latest Japanese technology. The train launch is to coincide with the WSG opening ceremonies and is to run from Shin Nagoya Station to Tokyo Station at up to 1,000 kilometres per hour (about 600 miles per hour). However, a bizarre incident occurs during a party held by famous major sponsors, leading to a string of kidnappings of top executives. Conan deduces a possible link to serial abductions in the WSG 15 years earlier in Boston.”
Tomoka Nagaoka is at the helm of the movie. Takeharu Sakurai (Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer) overlooked the scripting. Katsuo Ono reprised the role of music composer. Rock band Tokyo Jihen is performing the theme song “Eien no Fuzaishōmei” (The Eternal Alibi).
