The Crimson Heart: gift from Julius Ceasar to Cleopatra and necklace of unrivalled beauty and inestimable value. Thought lost forever, it reappears centuries later, but in two parts possessed by two rival moguls; Pramuk, a Southeast Asian tycoon and underworld king, and Dawson, an aging British mogul and former partner of the legendary Great Thief Lupin.
Meanwhile, Interpol Inspector Zenigata hopes to make the bust of his life at the Dawson estate, where the world’s top thieves have assembled to appoint a new leader to Dawson’s thievery syndicate, The Works. Among them is Lupin the Third (Shun Oguri), grandson to Great Thief Lupin. When Pramuk orchestrates an infiltration, assassinating Dawson and snatching the necklace, Lupin vows to avenge his death and steal back The Crimson Heart by assembling his own elite team of thieves - Daisuke Jigen, Fujiko Mine and Goemon Ishikawa. They descend on The Ark, a remote and heavily-armed island fortress with an impregnable, state-of-the-art security system. Nevertheless, Lupin and friends won’t stop until they pry redemption and the world’s most coveted prize from Pramuk’s hands.
In 1967, manga artist Monkey Punch gave to the world a new anti-hero in the guise of a hard-boiled, jocular thief named “Lupin the Third”, who grew in international popularity thanks to his starring role in subsequent adventures across print, TV and film. Now, Shun Oguri steps in to fill the big shoes of Lupin in this vibrant new live action feature film, directed by action film maker, Ryuhei Kitamura with the collaboration of action genre specialists Shim Jae Won and Jan Kiryon.
