Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer

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 RyƓsuke 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?

Bonus. Watched the cartoon a few times, it's strange it looks like its set in Europe.

In a way, it is. But at the same time, it's not, not at all. You'd have to watch the whole anime to understand.

I wish Japanese animators were as good with CGI as they are with anime....

How DARE you... I bet they're saving that for the sequel.

Don't know much about it but I think it shows too much of destroying the street pavements ... So far ...

They are heartless, aren't they?

As long as these adaptations are better than the live-action Fist of the North Star, we should be fine. RIP Chris Penn

Some old village, some train, some monster that likes to mess up pavements. Not convinced yet.

FMA and FMAB are 2 of the my favorite shows and I'm glad they're even attempting a live action version, but blonde hair on asian actors always bugs me, it just takes me out of it. In the show the brothers are little blonde haired blue eyed euro babies, but since this is being made for and by primarily Japanese people why not just let him have a more natural color, or better yet give it a dyed look like the main dad character in the movie The Host.
