Baltimore, MD (July 7, 2011) – Join Otakon and FUNimation© Entertainment as they present the world premiere of the subtitled Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos movie. See the next installment of the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise just weeks after its theatrical release in Japan.

In the lost holy land of Milos,
The Elrics search for the truth behind an unknown form of alchemy.
What secrets are hidden in Milos?
Riddles must be solved,
And dangers faced,
Before Ed and Al can find the truth.

Kazuya Murata is also known for his directorial work in many other titles such as Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, Eureka Seven, Dennou Coil, Gunsmith Cats, Planetes, Pokemon, Steel Angel Kurumi, and many more.
