The only problem is that, even with the release date in Japan, it will take quite a while for it to be put up on the net and translated, so, I'm figuring we'll only be able to lay hands on this movie, at least, by the end of this year, early 2012.
I don't really think it would take so long for the speed fansub groups to translate a movie. An episode would be usually fansubbed in 1-2 days from the release date. A movie could take, for example an hour an a half, so the length of 4 episodes or so. I think we will lay our hands on translation a week or two after the film premiere.
Of course, there may be a problem with getting the movie in HQ.
Exactly my point, Michiyo. ^^
I'm not talking about translations, I'm taking about available Raws on the net. The movie gets released in theaters in Japan on July 2nd. It will only reach DVD and Blu-Ray, at least, 3 months after that, if we are lucky (which would make any Raw available, at the earliest, late October. Also remembering that, though the TV-caps of FMA:B took few hours to be available, Blu-Ray-caps were only available on the net at least 10 days after their release in Japan. Some took more than a month).
A episode airs on TV and is easily captured and put up in a computer and web, with almost 100% anonymity. Not the same happens with movies.
We have to take into account that, in Japan, recording a film inside a movie theater is a felony that, if the person is caught doing, he/she is arrested immediately and, culturally, is very condemnable. Unlike places like the US and Brazil, people in Japan don't usually DO that. (and it think it'll be even harder after last year's campaign to diminish manga/anime piracy on the net, which has slowed down many Raws from reaching the net);
So I think it will be actually quite hard for us to find ANY Raw to the film before it gets released in DVD and Blu-Ray. Most animes are. And, therefore, it unlikely we'll get to see this movie before 2012.

I regularly visit Funimation's website and see what their current/future releases are (well, because I enjoy their dubs xD); and I've just read that they've acquired the rights to this movie and will be releasing it early 2012. I'm really glad they'll be releasing it.
Flower Mound, TX (May 21, 2011) – FUNimation ® Entertainment has acquired the second film based on the popular Fullmetal Alchemist franchise, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: THE SACRED STAR OF MILOS (also known as Fullmetal Alchemist: Milos no Sei naru Hoshi), which is set to premiere in Japan on July 2nd, 2011.
Longtime partner Aniplex, Inc. has awarded the U.S. theatrical, home entertainment, digital and broadcast rights to the animated feature-length film to American distributor FUNimation.
The movie is produced by studio BONES and directed by Kazuya Murata. FUNimation will release the English dub version of FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST: THE SACRED STAR OF MILOS in theaters in early 2012 and on DVD and Blu-ray in the Spring.
Awesome! Thank you, A Pierrot's Aria for bringing the news! Good to know that: 1. It will be English dubbed. 2. The movie will get the theatrical release in the U.S. 3. And it will come out relatively early, in the early part of 2012, and the DVDs in Spring of 2012 4. Also, now we know the English title of the movie: Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.
Sure, I was hoping/expecting this, but it is good to see it officially in the news!

Hi everyone, I'm back on the forum
From June 30th to July 3rd, Japan Expo will be hold in paris, like any other year. But this year, Dybex, who releases FMA in France, will have a big surprise for us. The 2nd, at exactly 4.15 pm, will be project FMA : MiloStar, with french subtitles XD 400 places for the projection will be freely given during the morning and we'll have the chance to see the movie at the same time that our friends in japan ^^ It's not the first time Dybex gives us an exclusive view on FMA, last year, also at the Japan Expo, we had the last episode of FMA B. projected the same day it went out in japan, with subtitles. So here they come again and surprise us !!!
I know I'll fight like a lion to have one of those 400 places, and I can't wait to be there, it's gonna be really great ^^
I was hoping for something, like a trailer in french, but the whole movie ??? with subtitles ??? Now that's something XD

Aw man, they played the last FMA:B episode subtitled at Anime Expo in LA last year too, but I haven't heard anything about the movie! C'mon, Funimation/Expo/whoever, get on it!!!!! I already have so much going on that weekend, but that would be the highlight as far as I'd be concerned, hahaha!
