Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Teaser

What’s Fullmetal Alchemist about:

For anyone who isn’t familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist, allow me to bring you up to speed.

Fullmetal Alchemist is a manga series, written by Hiromu Arakawa. It produced two epic anime series: Fullmetal Alchemist (2004 – 2005) and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (2009 – 2010).

Plot synopsis:

After the death of their mother, Edward and Alphonse Elric attempt to use alchemy to resurrect her. As one might suspect, everything goes horribly wrong as Edward loses his left leg, right arm and Alphonse loses his body.

In an effort to save his brother, Edward transmutes Alphonse’s soul into a suit of armor.  After Edward receives auto-mail (bionic limbs), the brothers search for the Philosopher’s Stone. The stone is a magical item that allows the user to manipulate the laws of alchemy.  Edward hopes that with the Philosopher’s Stone, he can restore Alphonse’s body.

Due to the success of the anime series, Warner Brothers Japan will release a live-action version in December 2017.

  • I don’t like it, lol, the teaser, at least.
    Mostly because I can’t see anyone else being Edward and Alphonse besides Romi Park and Rie Kugimiya, and partially because that would be the third time I’ve seen those scenes, and both anime series did it better.
    In my opinion, at least. 🙂

    What do you think, yourself?

    • I agree 🙂 The teaser looks meh.

  • Watched the trailer the other day. Unfortunately, the teaser looks a little meh, like you said. I (surprisingly) haven’t watched the anime yet (even though I’ve had all the episodes on my computer for the past 7 years). I’m curious to see how this movie will pan out. I’ve never heard of a big North American brand like WB take a Japanese anime series and make it a live-action film (except for the dreaded Dragon Ball Z movie that came out like 10 years ago, argh). It’s interesting that they’re setting it in Europe with the main character speaking Japanese – I wonder how audiences will respond to that.
