Fullmetal Alchemist movie updates have once again made fans excited with the release of new set photos from its upcoming flick.
The hype of the live action adaption of Hiromu Arakawa’s popular action fantasy manga continues to make rounds. The new stills were released through the Warner Bros’ official website that also included an English dubbed trailer for the title’s fans worldwide.
Fullmetal Alchemist movie drops new set photos
Interestingly, two new set photos surfaced. The first photo shows a daunting Edward standing on a train platform alongside his younger brother Alphonse. Edward dons his iconic red coat, and is seen carrying a suitcase in one hand.
Notably, Alphonse’s “disembodied suit of armor” is very similar to that from the anime, which has gotten so many fans more than excited. Meanwhile, the second photo shows Edward fighting against one of the iron giants on the streets. Both images certainly give fans a look at very familiar scenes.
There have been no further announcements regarding the release of any next footages. However, the movie is set to hit theaters in Japan in December this year.
