TMS Entertainment announced on Monday that it will screen the Lupin the IIIrd: Fujiko's Lie (Lupin the IIIrd: Mine Fujiko no Uso) and Lupin the IIIrd: Goemon's Blood Spray (Lupin the IIIrd Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon) anime films at this year's Anime Expo on July 6 at 10:30 a.m. The screenings will debut the English dubs for both films, and will be restricted to people at least 18 years of age.

Lupin the IIIrd: Mine Fujiko no Uso opened in Japan on May 31. The film ranked at #1 in the mini-theater rankings in Japan in its opening weekend.

The film is the third film in a series consisting of 2014's Lupin the Third: Jigen's Gravestone and 2017's Lupin the IIIrd Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon.

Takeshi Koike, who directed the previous two films and designed the Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine series, directed the new film at Telecom Animation Film. Yūya Takahashi also returned from the previous two films and Lupin III: Part IV as the scriptwriter. James Shimoji again composed the music. Katsuhito Ishii was the creative advisor.

The Lupin the IIIrd Chikemuri no Ishikawa Goemon (Lupin the Third: Goemon Ishikawa's Spray of Blood) film opened in Japan in February 2017.

Discotek Media released the Lupin the Third: Jigen's Gravestone film on Blu-ray Disc and DVD with an English dub and English subtitles in April 2016.
