One day, her quiet solitude is interrupted as the Royal Guards break in to capture her. It is then that Cardia meets Arsène Lupin, a chivalrous thief, who helps her escape the soldiers’ clutches. She soon finds herself on a journey with Lupin to locate her father, who holds the answers to her mysterious condition. The two are soon joined by four more interesting and handsome gentlemen…”

2nd PV Released for “Fullmetal Alchemist” Live Action Film

A second promotional video has been uploaded for the Fullmetal Alchemist live action film adaptation! Edward and Alphonse Elric’s characters, both young and older, are previewed in the short trailer. The film’s plot will be based on the storyline from the manga series by Hiromu Arakawa.

For those unfamiliar with the story, the synopsis can be found below:

“Alchemists are knowledgeable and naturally talented individuals who can manipulate and modify matter due to their art. Yet despite the wide range of possibilities, alchemy is not as all-powerful as most would believe. Human transmutation is strictly forbidden, and whoever attempts it risks severe consequences. Even so, siblings Edward and Alphonse Elric decide to ignore this great taboo and bring their mother back to life. Unfortunately, not only do they fail in resurrecting her, they also pay an extremely high price for their arrogance: Edward loses his left leg and Alphonse his entire body. Furthermore, Edward also gives up his right arm in order to seal his brother’s soul into a suit of armor.

Years later, the young alchemists travel across the country looking for the Philosopher’s Stone, in the hopes of recovering their old bodies with its power. However, their quest for the fated stone also leads them to unravel far darker secrets than they could ever imagine.”

The film will open in theaters on December 1.

You can find the trailer (english-subbed) below!
