The official website for Detective Conan: The Scarlet Alibi (Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Fuzai Shōmei), the compilation film released in anticipation of the upcoming Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet (Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan) film, announced on Wednesday that the compilation will extend its theatrical run to March 5 and beyond. The film was originally only slated to screen for three weeks from February 11 to March 4.
The film opened at #2 at the Japanese box office this past weekend. The film earned 251,886,500 yen (about US$2.38 million) in its first four days, and it sold 92,000 tickets and earned 126,468,400 yen (about US$1.19 million) over the weekend. (The film opened on Thursday, a holiday in Japan.)
The compilation film combines footage from various television anime episodes that center on the Akai family. The ending of the compilation film contains a video "secret message from Shuichi Akai" that will lead up to The Scarlet Bullet film, as well as a new trailer for The Scarlet Bullet itself. The titular character Conan narrates the compilation in a newly recorded and edited audio track.
