Live Action Full Metal Alchemist Finally Teased

FullMetalAlchemist-LiveAction-Movie-Teaser-3

Ecstatic glee has seemingly been established as the consensus response for the first teaser of the upcoming live action Full Metal Alchemist movie, which bears a great resemblance to the source material as well – a consistent issue with live action adaptations of the past.

The aggravatingly short teaser:

Anime fans can relive the traumatic train-ride that is Full Metal Alchemist in theaters come winter 2017.

    *Obligatory scathing comment about majorities taking the rightful roles of minorities*

    I expect the SJW hordes to be outraged about this injustice and misrepresentation etc etc

    In fact they are happy. They only throw a tantrum when is white actors. Otherwise the SJW hypocrites will not protest

    When Japan does it, it just looks shrug-inducingly ridiculous rather than as a missed opportunity or face-palm worthy. I mean, America is considered a multiracial country in the first place, where they can pick out any kind of person they need if they really want to... Japan is an has always been an island in more ways than just geographically.

    SJW: OMG Asian-washing. Main character should be Black Gay Trans Muslim illegal Immigrant to show "diversity" in workplace.

    That's kinda like saying "FBI: Terrorists should wash their hair and beards in BBQ sauce because obese people need to lose weight!". If you're against a certain group at least say substantial, fact-based things, not this schizophrenic vitriol that only shows you're angry and full of hate. You might as well have said "SJW: Waah wahh, I'm such a loser! I pick my boogers and eat them! I eat shit!"

    Surprised they bothered giving him blonde hair. They usually don't bother going beyond black/brown in live action movies.

    when japan adapt manga into movie people complain about japanese cast, when hollywood adapt manga into movie people complain about the so called "white washing". Seriously i don't get it...

    Fullmetal Alchemist is a work I wouldn't complain, specially since many of the characters are clearly European-like. I just want Armstrong to be glorious.

    Depends on the characters. Its just a funny coincidence that Japan is adapting a series with western characters using asian characters and the US is adapting a series with Japanese characters using western characters. Maybe its a question of "why the hell can't people ever look outside their borders and have faith in the viewers that they'll understand their decision to go for accuracy than just pandering"? Seriously, if I directed a film for, for example, a game series with a diverse cast like Tekken or King of Fighters, it doesn't matter where I'm from or where I'm filming the movie, I'd at least cast every character from their actual character's respective countries. I mean, Jean Claude Van Damme, the Muscles from Brussels as "Mr. America" Guile? Wtf were they thinking? Oh yeah, that was a comedy right?

    Well if the original character was asian, then they should cast an asian actor and vise versa.
    About GITS, I say, that Motoko had a mixed face, but I don't like Scarlet in her role cause I don't see her as powerful cyborg.
    About FMA, they should be europeans...that's basic knowledge.

    I've tried to figure out who the perfect actress for motoko would be, but white or asian you'd never be able to find someone with those piercing eyes which is the most notable characteristic of 1995 Motoko's look, imo. Scarlet comes close in most other areas though, at least. I just hope she does something with her voice instead of using that typical cracked one she never changes for any role.

    A vast majority of Asians cannot do blonde correctly, this is an example of that. Furthermore, Edward and Alphonse Elric aren't Asian to begin with. This movie is a joke.

    Maybe this one will be good since it's being made in Japan.

    Weird choice of stuff to show in a trailer. If I didn't know what Full Metal Alchemist was about, I'd have assumed it was an epic tale about redoing pavements using magic, which inevitably goes wrong.

    I'm expecting this to be just like the Attack on Titan movie in a ton of ways.

    100% Japanese cast in setting with almost no asians, and people bawwwing their eyes out, because Motoko is played by white Johansson.

    This casting & ScarJo's casting ain't the same fam.

    They're making a Japanese film for a Japanese audience. While Hollywood makes films for global views. Besides there's not that many white/non-Japanese actors in Japan who speaks fluent Japanese.

    I don't have a problem with Kusanagi being played by an american actress, i have a problem with her being played by Johansson because she's is not cut for the part, she looks like Ramona from Scott Pilgrim vs the World instead of a badass cyborg

    Johansson looks great in the trailer and no amount of knee jerking will change that.

    Keep telling yourself that fuckboy, and watch that movie fail miserably just like all other shitty hollywood adaptations

    Johansson looks great as Kusanagi about as much as Chatwin did when he played Goku

    Is this really a small Japanese guy with a blonde wig playing the Edward Elric? and they really never thought this looked silly in prepoduction? I mean c'mon.
    and people actually complained about ScaJo playing a raceless cyborg...

    I don't know why people just assume this and not at least even look up the wiki for Motoko Kusanagi before typing their words into public. Its not technically correct that she's entirely "raceless". Think about it, she's a "Cyborg", not a robot or android. A cyborg is a robot-human hybrid. She was born a human, after all. Her brain is at least in part human. She identifies with being female at the very least. And that name didn't just come out of nowhere, even though her background is pretty much a mystery. At least the TV series tried to delve into her past, showing that she survived a plane crash at a young age, wrecking her human body, and has since spent most of her life in prosthesis.

    It's not her real name and racial features are part of the body which in her case is entirely artificial, there is no difference between an asian,african or european brain.

    If you were a human brain put into a 100% artificial body of your chosimg and knew for a fact which ethnicity your birthparents were, its likely you'd choose a look that reflected that background. Motoko does look at least part asian.
