A new trailer was just released for the long-awaited live-action adaptation of Arakawa Hiromu’s Fullmetal Alchemist!
The plot is one fans will be quite familiar with: Edward and Alphonse’s search for the fabled Philosopher’s Stone. Premiering on Dec. 1, MISIA’s “Kimi no Soba ni Iru yo” will be used as the film’s theme song.

The rundown of the main cast is:
Yamada Ryousuke as Elric Edward
Honda Tsubasa as Rockbell Winry
Dean Fujioka as Mustang Roy
Renbutsu Misako as Hawkeye Riza
Satou Ryuuta as Hughes Maes
Oizumi Yo as Tucker Shou
Matsuyuki Yasuko as Lust
Hongou Kanata as Envy
Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony
