New Live-Action Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer Drops – A Somber Moment for the Elric Brothers (VIDEO)
Live-action adaptations of classic anime franchises are abound in the film industry, and while the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie seems to be under-performing critically and financially, there is still hope that any of the several other live-action anime film adaptations in the works can find success. Fans have been eager to see more of the Fullmetal Alchemist universe in live-action form ever since the first trailer released last year. Now, the Fullmetal Alchemist second trailer has been released by Warner Bros. to further excite fans for the film.
The new trailer seen above shows more than the first teaser did. We see brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric mourning the loss of their mother, Trisha whose grave is shown. The brothers attempt to bring back their mother through alchemy, which fails to do so. This also presumably takes away Alphonse’s body and Edward’s arm and leg, as it occurred in the source material, as we afterward see an older Edward with a mechanical arm. We also see Alphonse, or at least his soul, in control of a new suit of armor body. It is also presumed that the plot of the film will still focus on the brothers’ quest for the Philosopher’s Stone, in the hopes that it can restore their bodies.
The trailer also reveals the Japanese release date for the film, which is December 1st of this year. There is no word yet whether or not the film will receive a theatrical release outside of Japan at this time. What do you guys think? Did you like the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist second trailer?
