The official website for the anime films based on Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan manga has confirmed that the 15th film, Detective Conan: Quarter of Silence, will open in Japan on April 16, 2011. The story begins with a threat against the Tokyo governor, but Conan's quick thinking prevents any fatalities when a subway tunnel is blown up. Conan learns there may be a connection to a village that was relocated for the construction of a dam, and he races to stop the criminal before the next attack.
The website is streaming a teaser trailer. (In the linked page, select the "Trailer 特報" button on the bottom.) The Detective Conan anime franchise is celebrating its 15th anniversary.

The Rainbow-Colored Flower That Connects the World) film. (In the linked page, select the "特報2" button on the right.)
Like the two previous Precure All-Stars DX magical girl films, the new film will combine the casts of all the Pretty Cure (Precure) television series to date. This 10th Precure film will open in Japan on March 19, 2011.
