Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Film's 2 Making-of Videos Streamed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Film opened in Japan on December 1

Warner Brothers began streaming two making-of videos on Friday for the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film. The videos preview scenes before and after CG effects.

The film opened the Tokyo International Film Festival on October 25 for its world premiere, before opening in Japan on December 1. The film is also screening in Japan on IMAX and 4DX screens. The film topped the Japanese box office in its first weekend.

The film will also open in over 190 countries around the world, including in the United States and Europe. According to the film's official website, it will be the widest international opening for any Japanese film — live-action or animated. (The Japanese film industry often lists territories among "countries"; for example, Hong Kong is often listed separately from mainland China.)

Anime NYC screened the film's United States premiere as its closing film on November 19. Director Fumihiko Sori attended 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 was aged up to 20 years old; he was originally 15 in the manga. Alphonse is rendered in full CG.
