Fullmetal Alchemist Film Reveals Alphonse Eric Photo

Yesterday was kind of a big deal in Japanese film.  With the release of the Alphonse photo above it was Japan’s first use of “techniques” to create a CG Alphonse.    For those interest in the Anime and Manga genres this film could mark a turning point with regard to technology.

The official website for the live-action film of Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist manga revealed the film’s December 1 opening date on Thursday. In addition, the site revealed a new still featuring Alphonse Elric in full CG.  Comic Natalie website reports that the CG Alphonse employs some techniques for the first time in the Japanese film industry.  According to Anime News Network

Fumihiko Sori (live-action Ping Pong) is directing the film. On adapting the source material, Sori said, “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.” Regarding the faithfulness of the adaptation, which has characters of non-Japanese ethnicity, the director said, “There will never be a scene in which a character says something that would identify him/her as Japanese.”

While fans still have to wait for December to see the film, given this image was released we expect more to come.  As we hear more you’ll know more.

Here’s a teaser for the film that was released in November
