Warner Bros. began streaming a new English-subtitled trailer on Monday for the live-action film of Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist manga. The video previews Misia's theme song "Kimi no Soba ni Iru yo" (I'm By Your Side). The video is an English-subtitled version of the trailer Warner Bros. streamed earlier this month

The film will open the Tokyo International Film Festival on October 25 for its world premiere. The film will have IMAX and 4DX screenings in Japan, and will open on about 400 screens in Japan on December 1.

Anime NYC will screen the film's United States premiere as its closing film on November 19. Director Fumihiko Sori will attend the screening.

The film stars Ryōsuke Yamada (Hey! Say! JUMP member and live-action Assassination Classroom's Nagisa) as Edward Elric, Atomu Mizuishi (Garo - Makai no Hana, Prince of Tennis 2nd season musicals) as Alphonse Elric (voice and motion capture), Tsubasa Honda (live-action Blue Spring Ride's Futaba) as Winry Rockbell, and Dean Fujioka (live-action Happy Marriage!?) as Roy Mustang. Other cast members include:

The film tells the story in one complete film. Ed is being aged up to 20 years old; he was originally 15 in the manga. Alphonse will be rendered in full CG.

Original manga creator Hiromu Arakawa is drawing a "special-edition comic" that people who attend theatrical screenings in Japan will receive.
