First Teaser Trailer for Live-Action 'Fullmetal Alchemist' from Japan
Another live-action adaptation of an anime & manga series is coming to the big screen. Aside from Ghost in the Shell, Japan is developing a live-action Fullmetal Alchemist movie from director Fumihiko Sori. In the Fullmetal Alchemist world, alchemy is one of the most-practiced sciences. The film is about two brothers who go on a quest for the Philosopher's Stone (no connection to Harry Potter). It stars Ryôsuke Yamada as Edward Elric, Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell, Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang, Ryuuta Satou as Maes Hughes, Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye, Natsuna as Maria Ross, Natsuki Harada as Gracia Hughes, You Ooizumi as Shou Tucker, Jun Kunimura and many others. This first teaser doesn't have much footage in it, but at least there's more to see here than the Blade of the Immortal trailer. Take a look.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Fumihiko Sori's Fullmetal Alchemist movie, direct from YouTube:
Synopsis from IMDb: Two alchemist brothers go on a quest for the Philosopher's Stone after an attempt to revive their dead mother goes horribly wrong. Fullmetal Alchemist is a live-action adaptation of a very popular anime and manga series. The feature film is directed by filmmaker Fumihiko Sori (of Vexille, Ichi, Orbital, Tomorrow's Joe, Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker previously), and features a script from the creator of the manga/series, Hiromu Arakawa. The project is currently filming in Japan, with an expected release sometime in 2017. The Fullmetal Alchemist franchise has already had two feature animated movies (released in 2005 and 2011), as well as two full series and tons of manga issues - but this will be the first live-action movie. Hopefully we'll see more footage from this movie sooner than later. Anyone excited yet?
