It was about three months ago that the upcoming Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire movie was announced, and today, we got our first look at it in motion. The monumental 23rd installment in the long-running Detective Conan film franchise sees its titular character make his way into international waters for the first time in over 20 years, bringing his escapade all the way to the country of Singapore. Uploaded to TOHO MOVIE’s official YouTube channel earlier today, the latest trailer also gives us our first look at the electric theme song “BLUE SAPPHIRE” as performed by Hiroomi Tosaka (Sandaime J Soul Brothers from Exile Tribe).
Following the stellar success of the last entry in the Detective Conan film franchise, namely Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer (Zero’s Executioner), there’s definitely going to be a lot riding on the continued success with Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire. With that being said, the film is already highlighting some very promising moments, and bringing someone like Hiroomi Tosaka on for the soundtrack is definitely a big move. Best known as one of the vocalists for the multi-talented Sandaime J Soul Brothers from Exile Tribe groups, Tosaka also celebrates a successful solo music career and acting career.
When the film was originally announced for its April 12 premiere, Detective Conan mangaka Gosho Aoyama penned an original key visual highlighting the Singapore locale, and more specifically the Marina Bay Sands resort in the background, as well as our cast of characters for the upcoming film. With this new trailer, we see just how the characters will be interacting with that locale, as well as a few snippets of the intense moments the boy genius Detective Conan will have to work his way through.
Set to hit theaters across Japan on April 12, 2019, those interested in checking out further information on the 23rd installment in the long-running film franchise, Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire, be sure to check out the film’s official website.
“BLUE SAPPHIRE” will be included on Hiroomi Tosaka’s upcoming single, “SUPERMOON”, due to release on April 10, 2019.
