Fullmetal Alchemist Live Action Teaser 2 : Human Transmutation
The VFX used on the alchemy scenes are awesome too, if i were to compare the alchemy scenes with Fullmetal Alchemist anime and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood anime, then i would say the alchemy scenes in live action looks real and something you can imagine. What i mean to say is Alchemy is a science, which can create things from another physical matter.
So in anime Alchemy felt like a magic, but when you see the same scenes in the anime it feels nothing like magic but a pure science. However i have doubt, i mean i don’t know or i can’t imagine how they are going to fill such a big story in 1-2 hours movie, So i thought they will make movie on half of the story and they will launch the second installment of the movie to complete the story, but as i mentioned earlier the film will feature complete story.
Although this is just my opinion based on Fullmetal Alchemist Live action Teaser 2 so you can say that – so far everything looks quite good in the movie, If you’re interested you can watch the teaser 1 here : Fullmetal Alchemist Live action Teaser 1.

Sori Fumihiko who worked on the Ping Pong Live Action Film will direct the movie. One of the great news that we have got or you can say a word of assurance from the director of the Fullmetal Alchemist Live Action Film itself that he want to follow the original script of the Manga. This is what Sori Fumihiko said in an interview :-
“I want to create a style that follows the original manga as much as possible. The cast is entirely Japanese, but the cultural background is Europe. However, it’s a style that doesn’t represent a specific race or country.”
The Fullmetal Alchmist Live Action Film will be adapted from the Manga written by “Arakawa” who first published the Manga in the year 2001 in Square Enix’s Monthly Shounen Gangan till the year 2010.
The Manga has inspired two Anime series first is Fullmetal Alchemist which follows half of the original story line from the Manga and then moves forward with its own story, which is kinda like Akame ga kill Anime series. You can say that Akame ga Kill adapted the method from Fullmetal Alchemist Anime Series and the second series of the Anime “Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood,” which follows the original storyline of the Manga till the end.
The film has slated its first premier in December 1st 2017 in Japanese theaters. So far we know that, the film began its shooting in the month of June in Italy and wrapped up in Japan in second half of August.
