Fumihiko Sori-directed adaptation will be distributed in over 190 countries
One day after its world premiere screening at the 30th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF), the official website for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa's Hagane no Renkinjutsushi/Fullmetal Alchemist manga posted three new 45-second character-featured trailers introducing Ed&Al&Winry, the Homunculi team, and Roy Mustang's squadron.
In addition, the site confirmed that the Ryosuke Yamada (a member of Japanese idol group Hey! Say! JUMP)-starring film will be distributed in over 190 countries in the world, including the United States and Europe. It will be the biggest scale for a Japanese film. Following the US premiere at Anime NYC on November 19, its theatrical run in Japan is set to begin on December 1.
