Philippine theater chain SM Cinema has listed on their website on Monday that Detective Conan’s 22nd anime film adaptation is set to premiere this June.
The anime film is scheduled to have an advanced screening on Saturday, June 02, at Cinema 7 of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City.
Singapore-based licensor ODEX, the distributor of the movie in Southeast Asia, has yet to make an announcement regarding free giveaways, if any, for attendees of the advanced screening.
The movie’s general release will be on Wednesday, June 06, which will be available exclusively in select SM Cinema branches.
Detective Conan: Zero’s Executioner (Meitantei Conan Zero no Shikkonin) is the 22nd anime movie adaptation based on the highly-popular Detective Conan manga series by Gosho Aoyama, which has been publishing since January 1994 and currently has 94 volumes.
The upcoming movie will be the follow-up to the franchise’s 21st anime, Detective Conan: The Crimson Love Letter, which premiered in local cinemas July last year.
The anime movie will be directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa, who also directed the anime series Death Parade, while Takeharu Sakurai, who also worked in recent Detective Conan movie adaptations, will handle screenplay for the new movie.
The movie will be produced by TMS Entertainment and V1 Studio, and premiered in Japanese cinemas last April 13.
Minami Takayama has returned to portray the character “Conan Edogawa”.
