Japan is surely making a lot of live-action films based on anime and manga these days, huh? And one of the most notable ones include Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist manga. Now, the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film’s staff has revealed the film’s own poster visual, which previews its cast:

The film previously revealed different character posters last July, and you can check them out, as well as the film’s latest PV, here: https://sojapan.jp/2017/07/live-action-fullmetal-alchemist-film-reveals-new-trailer-visuals/

Meanwhile, Gallery AaMo in Tokyo Dome City  and Osaka’s Nankou ATC Museum will hold their own FMA anniversary gallery in autumn. The film stars Ryosuke Yamada as the one and only Fullmetal Alchemist himself, Edward Elric.

The film will premiere on 1st December, and will also star:

  • Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell
  • Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang
  • Ryuuta Satou as Captain Maes Hughes
  • Yo Oizumi as Major Shou Tucker
  • Yasuko Matsuyuki as Lust
  • Kanata Hongou as Envy
  • Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony
  • Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye
  • Natsuki Harada as Gracia Hughes
  • Jun Kunimura as Doctor Marco
  • Fumiyo Kohinata as General Hakuro
  • Natsuna as Maria Ross
  • Kenjiro Ishimaru as Father Cornello

In an earlier interview, Director Fumihiko Sori revealed that unlike live-action film adaptations of popular manga titles like Rurouni Kenshin, Attack on Titan, and Chihayafuru, they will be telling the story of the Elric brothers in only one stand-alone film. This movie also promises to stay loyal to the source, so one might wonder how they will fit all of that story material in one feature-length film.
