    Toho Co., Ltd. and Pony Canyon have provided SciFi Japan with press notes and high-res photos from THE CONFIDENCE MAN JP -EPISODE OF THE PRINCESS- (コンフィデンスマンJP プリンセス編, Konfidensuman JP Purinsesu-hen). The movie was originally scheduled to open in Japan on May 1, 2020 but was delayed to July 23 due to the pandemic. It is now being offered for international distribution by Pony Canyon.

    -EPISODE OF THE PRINCESS- is the second feature film based on Fuji TV series THE CONFIDENCE MAN JP (2018). The first, THE CONFIDENCE MAN JP – THE MOVIE (コンフィデンスマンJP the movie, Konfidensuman JP the movie), premiered in May 2019 and was an instant box office hit.

The con artists are back to pull off their boldest, most brilliant scam yet. The target? A 10 trillion yen inheritance! Dangers lurk everywhere for the veteran scammers who are willing to risk it all, even their lives, to hook their “fish”! What will become of the Confidence Men?!

    The greatest scam in history begins now!!
