The film will tell a completed story instead of setting it up for sequels. Some details from the original can be expected to be lost in this adaptation, given that the writers had to compress 27 volumes’ worth of lore into one two-hour-long movie.

“Fullmetal Alchemist” is a manga series published from 2001 to 2010 on Square Enix’s Monthly Shonen Gangan. It later inspired two TV anime series and two feature-length films.

“Fullmetal Alchemist” the live-action adaptation movie will premiere in Japan on December 1. JB
