As previously reported, shooting wrapped up on the Fullmetal Alchemist feature film. And now, here’s the flick’s very first 30-second trailer.

The movie will be directed by Fumihiko Sori, who is best known for the 2002 film Ping Pong, while boy band singer Ryosuke Yamada stars as Edward Elric.


“I want to depict something that follows the original work as much as possible,” Sori said earlier this year. “The cast is entirely Japanese, but the setting is Europe. However, their race and nationality isn’t expressed in a specific form.”
