There are currently three speculated titles for the movie: Hunter × Hunter: The Scarlet Phantom, Hunter × Hunter: The Scarlet Illusion, and Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge.
This isn't really speculated... the logo gives us the title. The full title is: "Hunter x Hunter the Movie: The Scarlet Phantom (Phantom Rouge)." A lot of Japanese movies (and TV shows) like to give English subtitles to the titles, in this case it's the "Phantom Rouge" part. However, I feel as though the subtitle in this case is a faulty translation of 緋色の幻影 which is literally "Scarlet Phantom" or "The Phantom of Scarlet." ANN also keeps saying that the "rouge" refers to the Kurta's eyes which we all know are truly scarlet adding to the fact that the subtitle is just a bad translation by the production staff. The "Scarlet Illusion" title is just an off translation of "幻影 Phantom." For these reasons, I've simply gone with "The Scarlet Phantom," a literal and seemingly appropriate translation of the main title: 緋色の幻影. XScar (talk) 06:01, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

Alright then I'll just remove it.  - Darkchylde Talk 

Is this movie canon?

Kurapika's backstory is now canon to the manga. But I don't know if the rest of this will happen after the hiatus ends...Killua won't leave Alluka's side & parted ways with Gon, so it would have to be after the New Chairman Arc...But Kurapika's already got all of the scarlet eyes back on his own after all of his friends left Yorkshin, so it would have to be before the New Chairman Arc...But this has to take place before the Chimera Ant Arc because Killua still has Illumi's needle in his head.

Well the movie obviously is set between the Yorknew City arc and the Greed Island arc. For timeline reasons, I think this should be stated in the article. Anyone else agree? BHM1250 (talk) 06:57, January 22, 2015 (UTC)
