First full-length theatrical Lupin film in over 20 years! Unless it's gonna be another Koike-verse OVA marketed as a film (which I wouldn't object to). I'm also not counting the detective conan crossover as its not a standalone Lupin story and has more in common with the former series anyway. Will be interesting to see how its turns out.
