The Detective Conan movie Twitter account has revealed a new combined poster visual for Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine that depicts Conan and his allies on one side and the Black Organization on the other. The poster will go up in Japanese theaters from February 3.
Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine is set to begin screening in Japan on April 14. A compilation film titled Detective Conan: Ai Haibara Monogatari ~Kurotetsu no Mystery Train~ started screening on January 6.
The new Detective Conan movie sees Conan and the Detective Boys being invited to Hachijojima Island by Sonoko Suzuki for whale watching. Near the island, an ocean facility called the Pacific Buoy, which serves to connect the security cameras of police around the world, is testing a new technology that makes use of facial recognition.

Meanwhile, a dark shadow is creeping up on Ai Haibara.
