"Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos"- January 20, 2012

The animated feature "Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos", based on the Japanese manga comics series written/illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa is set in a fictional universe in which alchemy is one of the most advanced scientific techniques known to man.

The film (previously released in Japan July 2012) is directed by Kazuya Murata, from a screenplay by YĆ«ichi Shinpo :

"...a fugitive alchemist with mysterious abilities leads the 'Elric' brothers to a distant valley of slums inhabited by the 'Milos,' a proud people struggling against bureaucratic exploitation. 'Ed' and 'Al' quickly find themselves in the middle of a rising rebellion, as the exiled Milos lash out against their oppressors.

"At the heart of the conflict is 'Julia', a young alchemist befriended by 'Alphonse'. She'll stop at nothing to restore the Milos to their former glory - even if that means harnessing the awful power of the mythical 'Philosopher's Stone'..."

The film will be released in North America, January 20, 2012.
