Indonesian cinema chain CGV Cinemas announced last Thursday that Odex will screen Detective Conan vs. Kid the Phantom Thief, the compilation film for the Detective Conan franchise, in Indonesia. The announcement did not reveal an opening date for the compilation film.

The compilation film opened in Japan on January 5, prior to the release of the franchise's 27th film Detective Conan: Hyakuman Doru no Michishirube (Case Closed: The Million-dollar Pentagram) on April 12. The compilation film earned 189,438,900 yen (about US$1.30 million) in its first three days.

The compilation combines and re-edits television episodes including the debut of Kid the Phantom Thief, and adds new footage to the story in episode 76, when Conan and Kid had their first confrontation. The special also features exclusive new footage of "cherished interactions" between the two characters.

Case Closed: The Million-dollar Pentagram is the 27th film in the Detective Conan franchise, and it is the first to have midnight screenings. The film premiered in Japan on April 12. The film is screening in 515 cinemas across Japan, the largest number of theater screenings in the history of the Detective Conan film series, and also has screenings in IMAX in 50 theaters, MX4D in 14 theaters, 4DX in 64 theaters, and Dolby Cinema in eight theaters.

The film ranked at #1 in its opening weekend, selling 2,274,333 tickets and earning 3,352,494,500 (about US$21.7 million) yen in its first three days. The new film has exceeded the opening weekend of Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine (Iron Submarine), the 26th film that opened last year, making it the new best three-day opening for the franchise. The new film also has the biggest opening weekend for a film so far this year in Japan, beating HAIKYU!! The Dumpster Battle, which sold 1,529,000 tickets and earned 2,230,465,540 yen (about US$14.83 million) in its first three days. As of May 26, the film has sold a total of 9.77 million tickets and earned a cumulative total of 14,015,105,000 yen (about US$89.32 million), making the film the highest-grossing film in the franchise, beating last year's Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine (Iron Submarine) film's 13.83 billion yen (about US$88.23 million in current conversion) earnings.

The film is the second film in the franchise to have earned 10 billion yen, but Case Closed: The Million-dollar Pentagram earned it two days faster than Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine did. Detective Conan is now the first Japanese-animated film franchise to have two consecutive films pass 10 billion yen in earnings in Japan.
