Fullmetal Alchemist:The Sacred Star of Milos Premiere@ Downtown Independent

Finally, the dubbed version of Fullmetal Alchemist:The Sacred Star of Milos hits American shores with a special premiere night event. The first 100 ticket buyers will be given a bonus poster for the premiere on the outskirts of Little Tokyo. Friday January 20, 2012 the red carpet premiere will have a Q and A afterward with both Japanese and the English dub directors Kazuya Murata and the US Director Mike McFarland. Who else, but the voice of Ed Elric ,Vic Mignogna will be there, too. The President of Animation house Bones, Masahiko Minami, will be there. I think I'd ask where's more episodes of Soul Eater!

You can grab tickets here

If your out of LA you can try and win a trip here for the screening

The movie actually premiered way back at the Burbank Film Festival a few months back, here's my review. I would say the movie seems more like a stepping stone for director Kazuya Murata, sort of a "look what I can do" reel of work. It never felt much like in the spirit of Full Metal Alchemist as the story is more about a new character Julia and takes place before the end of the series.

Mustang could have just stayed at home for his part in the movie, like a dying ember or a matchstick.

Damn, right after a week long carnage and explosive Redline screenings you have another week filled with anime at the downtown independent. Damn it Sundance Cinemas, Laemmle's, and other independents, give the people of LA more anime.
