Fullmetal Alchemist fans, your wait is over. If you are one of the many who’ve been begging for another look at the Elric Brothers, then Warner Bros. Japan has your back. The official website for the studio’s live-action take on Fullmetal Alchemist has just released another theatrical poster for the feature. And, as promised, both Edward and Alphonse Elric are shown front and center.
The film’s Twitter account just alerted fans to the new release with an update. The message told followers the new poster featured a full-body look at Alphonse and a profile shot of Edward. The older Elric brother can be seen wearing his traditional red cloak, and its Flamel Coat of Arms can be seen printed squarely on its back. The image also gives fans a better look at the world of Fullmetal Alchemist. The wide shot shows the setting’s distinct European vibe, and its faraway tower suggests the city below may be a familiar one. If the name Reole doesn’t ring a bell, then you may want to brush up on the anime’s lore.
You can check out the second theatrical poster below. The full image can be found at the film's website here.
If you are not familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist, then you have plenty of time to watch the anime before its live-action film arrives. The series follows brothers Edward and Alphonse after their mother tragically passes. They attempt to use alchemy to resurrect her, but the attempt takes Edward’s arm and leg - and it takes Alphonse’s entire body. Determined to get their bodies restored, Edward and Alphonse try to become State Alchemists so they can find the location of a powerful item known as the Philosopher’s Stone. But their journey ultimately leads them into a seedy world of government corruption and mass genocide.
