I haven't seen the completed film yet, so I'm hoping to build up my excitement for the release of the film again from here.

In addition, a mysterious project "Beginning of the RELOAD PROJECT" is also launched.
The story is set in Tokyo. The world's largest sports festival "WSG: World Sports Games," which only takes place once every four years, is scheduled to be held soon. And it is also announced that the world's first "vacuum superconducting linear" train will start running from Nagoya to Tokyo in conjunction with its opening ceremony. Then, the event's prominent sponsors are kidnapped at a party venue. Shuichi Akai is monitoring the incident and FBI is waiting for an instruction from him. Meanwhile, Conan finds a connection between the kidnap and the abominable WSG successive abduction happened in Boston 15 years ago, which was also investigated by FBI. Is this just a coincident? What will happen in Tokyo where people are gathering from all over the world?
