The Japan Film Society announced on Wednesday that it will host the international premiere of the live-action Lupin the 3rd film and Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno at the 4th Annual LA EigaFest in Hollywood during the September 12-14 weekend. Lupin the 3rd will open the festival, and Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno will close it.

The live-action Lupin the 3rd film follows Lupin and his partners in crime before they became a gang. They infiltrate the high security of the Ark of Navarone, a gigantic fortress-like safe, to lay claim to the Crimson Heart of Cleopatra within. It is said that whoever possesses this treasure shall “unite the world.”

The live action film will begin airing in cinemas across Japan on August 30th.
