Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Movie Gets a Music Video

This music video for the live-action movie Full Metal Alchemist looks absolutely awesome. I’ll admit I don’t know enough about the movie but I can say that it looks like it might be worth a look. If the effects in the movie are anything like that within the music video then it should be pretty cool. The effort put into the music video is impressive enough at this point that it looks well worth the time spent to watch it already. The only thing that seems confusing is that the tempo and the feel of the music doesn’t really match

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’

The first live-action adaptation of the phenomenally popular Japanese manga created by female author Hiromu Arakawa proves to be a mixed bag of eye-catching visuals and uneven storytelling — rushed and choppy at times, and draggy and repetitive at others. Set in a fascinating early 20th-century alternate world in which two young brothers, both experts in the magical art of transmutation, attempt to rectify a calamitous experiment they carried out as children, “Fullmetal Alchemist” will initially attract huge local audiences when released on Dec. 1 but is unlikely to win viewers not already familiar with the source material or its numerous TV, video game and animated feature incarnations. U.S. release details are pending.

Directed and co-written by Fumihiko Sori (who helmed 2008’s feature “Ichi,” as well as video game adaptation “Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker”), the film opens with a prologue showing blond-haired brothers Ed and Al Elric as budding young practitioners of alchemy, a pursuit

Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer Brings the Iconic Manga to Life

Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer Brings the Iconic Manga to Life
For whatever reason, American movie studios have not yet cracked the code on live-action adaptations of manga or anime related things, but that doesn't mean good adaptations aren't on the way. Case in point, another trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist has arrived. We haven't seen the movie yet, so we can't say for sure that it is great, but it definitely looks great and fans of the source material should very much be looking forward to this now. Assuming they weren't already.
