WB Japans Live-Action FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST Movie To Premiere At The Tokyo Int'l Film Festival This October

The live-action Fullmetal Alchemist movie will have its world premiere next month at the Tokyo Int'l Film Festival, 5 weeks before its Dec. 1 release.

The Tokyo International Film Festival announced recently that it will hold the world premiere of the live-action Fullmetal Alchemsit movie on October 25.  The film is set for wide releae in Japan on December 1.  

The film was in the news recently as the director of the 2003 anime adaption was highly critical of the live-action film's all Japanese cast.  

The film ambitiously tells the complete story of 
 Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga in one film, with some slight tweaks - such as Edward Elric being 20 instead of 15.

When the film is released in Japan this December, initial screenings will distribute an original tie-in manga created by Arakawa.  Stay tuned to Anime Mojo for news on the film's inevitable release in North America.






Full Metal Alchemist Synopsis:

The series follows brothers Edward and Alphonse after their mother tragically passes. The duo attempt to use alchemy to resurrect her, but the attempt takes Edward’s arm and leg - and it takes Alphonse’s entire body. Determined to get their bodies restored, they try to become State Alchemists so they can find the location of a powerful item known as the Philosopher’s Stone. Their journey ultimately leads them into a seedy world of government corruption and mass genocide.
