Japanese movies will be screened in the opening work for the first time in ten years, and it will be the first time in the history of Japanese original manga movies.

“The Fullmetal Alchemist” is a work that widely expands the possibilities for Japanese movies towards the world.This piece is a highly complete image that could not be imaged until now I think that it is a big branch point that proves that you can visualize the pop culture of manga and animation consisting of stories and the world view with their own hands and make a big message to the world. Director Sogori Fumihiko (曽利文彦)is sincerely hoping that as one piece of the latest work of the Japanese film, I can broadly appeal Japanese content power and quality of Japanese film and technology to domestic as well as overseas people.”

The Trailer of the live action movie based on “ Fullmetal Archemist” is released.

Argawa Hiroshi’s manga “ Fullmetal Archemist” is created into a live-action Film by Fumihiko Sori whose major Work is “Ping Pong”. A trailer of the Movie is published this time.

In the trailer, Edward and his brother · Alphonse tried a forbidden human body alchemical reaction in order to see their died mother. Furthermore, Edward is wearing the steel prosthesis “machine armor (Automatic Mail)”, and make weapons using alchemical reactions, and the battle scene of Alphonse are seen.

Mr. Sori, Director of this movie, told his expressions about the Scene that as a result of the failure of the human body alchemical reaction Edwards lost his limbs and Alphonse all of his body. “The main theme of this Film is the brothers heavy burden resulted from the Taboo related to life.” And now that we could reach the point that it is possible to jump onto the place where the Japanese film technology could not have done before, and we have a lot of advanced technologies, so I want to challenge this work. I’m trying to touch the area is unexpected by the audiences before, but the technology is only the part of a good work and the Story is the most important part. So “the story” is the first and I think that it would be really wonderful if the technology is integrated carefully to express the story “.
