Based on the Hiromu Arakawa manga that spawned two anime series, Fullmetal Alchemist is finally making its leap to the big screen live action style. Ryôsuke Yamada, Tsubasa Honda, Dean Fujioka, Ryûta Satô, Yô Ôizumi, and Misako Renbutsu star in the film. Fumihiko Sori (Pinpon) directs the feature for Warner Bros. Japan (Rerouni Kenshin).
Fusing the glorious fantasy of modern anime/manga with the industrialisation age, Fullmetal Alchemist tells the story of brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric, who lose their bodies when performing a ritual to bring back their dead mother. To regain their human form, they must find the Philosopher’s Stone which will give them the power to do so. Until then, they inhabit these large, metallic bodies..
