The first photo of armored character Alphonse Elric in the upcoming live-action “Fullmetal Alchemist” film has gone online. To date the character has only been glimpsed in the distance, or a partial torso shot.
The film marks the first attempt to bring the world of “Fullmetal Alchemist” into a live-action setting following more than 60 million volumes of manga sold worldwide.
The story follows two brothers, Edward and Alphonse, who live in a fictional universe where alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques and is a very coveted skill. The two are on a quest for the philosopher’s stone in order to restore their bodies.
The full photo can be found on Twitter. The film opens December 1st in Japan.
