Must Read

Following its July release in theaters in Japan, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos now comes to North America!

The feature-length animated film, the second of the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, begins its North American film festival run this weekend at the Burbank International Film Festival.


Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos screens Saturday, 9/17, at 1:00 p.m. at Burbank’s AMC 6. Visit here https://www.burbankfilmfestival.org/film_sat_17.html#1pm to buy tickets.


The movie from the animation studio BONES follows a fugitive alchemist with mysterious abilities who 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.
