Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos goes nationwide January 15th, and 19th
Happy 2012, do you know what’s my New Year’s resolution? To become less of a procrastinator. One might ask why, well, this post is about something I’ve known for a good long while, the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood film is going to be showcased nation-wide in Canada on the 15th, and 19th. Once again courtesy of our friends at Funimation, and Cineplex, who are making quite the habit of nationwide Canadian releases. The film will open at a large amount of screens, the seemingly final amount can be viewed here.
Funimation describes the film’s plot as the following:
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos, a new feature-length adventure into the world of an international anime sensation. 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.
I’m uncertain on if the showings will be the English dub, or a subtitled one. Though, Cineplex’s listing (a place where you can buy tickets, and get up to the minute theatre addition news) for the film features the Japanese cast. If your local city has a Cineplex theatre and isn’t represented, Funimation is suggesting you guys demand a showing via Eventful. As well, once again the fine folks at Anime News Network are hosting a ticket contest for 230 free admissions to the Canadian screenings. Good luck, and don’t forget to watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on Superchannel (if you’re one of the 4 in the country who has it) every Monday at 10PM EST.
