The Scarlet Bullet
The Scarlet Bullet is the 24th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was originally scheduled to be released in Japan on April 17, 2020, which made it the first movie to premiere in the Reiwa period, but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead it will be released on April 16, 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.
On February 10, 2021, a global release was announced, featuring a multi-language opening in Japanese, English, Korean, German, and Chinese.
Japan is about to celebrate the world's largest sports festival, "WSG-World Sports Games", in Tokyo. In line with the opening ceremony, it is announced that the world's first "Vacuum Superconducting Linear" train, boasting a maximum speed of 1,000 km/h which combined all of Japan's technologies, will be opened to the public between Shin-Nagoya Station and Shibahama Station and established in Tokyo. As the world's attention is garnered, an incident occurs at a party venue where famous tournament sponsors are gathered, leading to an abnormal situation where top dogs of companies are kidnapped one after another. Behind the scenes are Shuichi Akai who monitors the incident, and the FBI who waits for orders from Akai.
Conan's reasoning reveals the relevance of the apocalyptic WSG kidnapping incident that occurred in Boston, USA, 15 years ago, and that the incident was also under the jurisdiction of the FBI. Is this a coincidence? What is going to happen in Japan, where many types of people from all over the world are gathered?
