Japanese film distributor TOHO began streaming the first full trailer for the 18th Detective Conanfilm, Detective Conan: Ijigen no Sniper (Detective Conan: Sniper From Another Dimension), on Friday.
A sniper opens the video by saying, "Finally, the time has come," and proceeds to shoot a man in the chest. The same shooter aims at Conan and says, near the end of the video, "High school detective Shinichi Kudo, playtime is over."
The film will feature the appearance of Shuichi Akai, and revolves around a sniping incident case. Even though someone was aiming a sniper rifle at Akai, it was Sera who was shot in the chest. The people in Tokyo are afraid of getting involved in this dreadful sniping incident. Will Akai, who should be dead, be targeted again? And why was Sera hit? The film will also include appearances by Subaru Okiya and FBI agent Jodie Starling.
Kobun Shizuno, who directed the last three Detective Conan films, is directing the new film, andKazunari Kouchi and Katsuo Ono returned from earlier Detective Conan movies and the television series to write the script and handle the music, respectively. The main cast features Minami Takayama as Conan Edogawa, Wakana Yamazaki as Ran Mōri, and Rikiya Koyama as Kogorō Mōri.
The film will open in Japan on April 19, 2014.
