It's around 2 PM on Sat. July 2 in Japan now, and that means the theaters are already showing the movie in Japan now. So...
Checked around the Japanese blog sites, and from few entries I found, I learned the [possible] rough main storyline. ohmy.gif
But, since these are blog sites I haven't used before, and that means I don't know the accuracy of the story on these blog sites. Hence, I will wait to share it till I can confirm it with other sources later. smile.gif

<Program Note>

Since this movie has some interesting twists and turns in the storyline, and learning these spoilers beforehand may literally ruin the surprises while watching the movie, I created Spoiler Zone forum to separate spoiler discussions, and just moved my own Early Movie Spoiler Collection thread to Spoiler Zone sub-forum. tongue.gif

Anyone with discussions that include the movie's spoiler contents, please go to FMA MiloStar Movie Spoiler Zone sub-forum. biggrin.gif

A Pierrot's Aria, Michiyo-, A2D the Colourblind Zebra, & FirstMoon, you can find your posts on my "Early Movie Spoiler collection!" thread in MiloStar Movie Spoiler Zone sub-forum. biggrin.gif

Sarahbn and Sakuyahanabi, I moved your posts concerning FMA Volume 11.5 to the Fullmetal Alchemist Movie-Goers to Get Manga Vol. 11.5 Thread since that's the dedicated thread for that volume! And this way we can keep any news concerning the movie itself and the Volume 11.5 untangled! happy.gif

The movie did quite well during the opening weekend in Japan! biggrin.gif

It was ranked 4th overall among all movies! Usually, anime movie gets limited number of theaters to show the movie, and hence ranking is lower than those Hollywood type movies that get shown in large number of screens (For example, last year's "the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya" anime was debuted at No. 7.) . smile.gif

"Fullmetal Alchemist: Sacred Star of Milos" was the top ranking movie among newly opened movie last week, and compared to the top 3 movies "Milos" was an anime movie and accordingly, had limited number of theaters showing the movie, with 90 screens nation-wide (this is considered as normal number for anime movie) in Japan, and considering that "Milos" coming in 4th is considered as excellent showing for anime movie. (FYI, "Shambara" had 233 screens showing the movie during the opening week, and that was considered as exception for the anime movie.) and during the first weekend 107,975 tickets were sold (including pre-sale figures) with the total sales of 145,033,800 Japanese Yen, or about U.S. $1,800,000 for the first weekend (Sat. & Sun.) of movie opening.

For a movie with less than 100 screens (90 screens for Milos) this is considered as extremely high number, and with this, current projected sales total by an expert is around 800,000,000 Japanese yen, or roughly U.S. $10,000,000 with the current exchange rate.
FYI, "Shambara" had the overall total earning of 1,220,000,000 Japanese yen (= about U.S. $15,071,000 using today's exchange rate) and that was considered as a GIANT hit for anime movie, and "Milos" getting [projected earning of] 800,000,000 Japanese yen would be a very respectable earning for an anime movie. smile.gif)

Top 5 Japanese Box Office movies for Sat. July 2 - Sun. July 3, 2011 (with exchange rate of $1.00 =80.95 Japanese Yen):

1. "Super 8" 204,415,911 Yen (= $2,525,212), (shown at 523 screens, 153,876 tickets sold), 2nd week of movie showing
2. Japanese movie "Revenge of Goddess of Andarsia" 198,374,694 Yen (= $2,450,583), (at 371 screens), 7th week of movie showing
3. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" 168,876,271 Yen (= $2,086,180), (at 779 screens), 2nd week of movie showing
4. "Fullmetal Alchemist: Sacred Star of Milos" 145,033,744 Yen (= $1,791,646), (at 90 screens, 107,975 tickets sold) 1st week
5. "Thor" 129,912,365 Yen (= $1,604,847), (at 436 screens) 1st week



===============

ETA: Jul. 14, 2011, Box Office figures for 2nd weekend (Sat. July 10 & Sun. July 11) of "MiloStar" movie:

"Sacred Star of Milos" held out well for the second weekend as well, holding steady at #4 in ranking! biggrin.gif
It narrowly beat out another big Hollywood movie, "I am Number 4" that had the opening weekend during this Sat. & Sun.

Top 5 Japanese Box Office movies for Sat. July 9 - Sun. July 10, 2011 (with exchange rate of $1.00 =80.95 Japanese Yen):

1. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" 168,550,030 Yen (= $2,082,150), (shown at 778 screens), 8th week of movie showing
2. "Super 8" 142,383,500 Yen (= $1,758,906), (shown at 517 screens), 3rd week of movie showing
3. Japanese movie "Revenge of Goddess of Andarsia" 133,574,000 Yen (= $1,650,080), (at 371 screens), 3rd week of movie showing
4. "Fullmetal Alchemist: Sacred Star of Milos" 77,090,300 Yen (= $952,320), (at 90 screens) 2nd week
5. "I am Number 4" 77,068,800 Yen (= $952,054), (at 264 screens) 1st week


The movie has been ranked #1 for "per screen average" sales for two weeks!!

-However, next weekend is the opening week for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" and the new movie from studio Ghibli, "Kokuriko-zaka Kara (From Kokuriko Slope)," and Pokemon White & Pokemon Black, as well as current top 3 hit movies, and therefore steep competitions will be expected from these movies. ^^

Thank you, hilary! biggrin.gif It includes part of Arakawa-sensei's written comment. ^^

======

Also... beside GanGan MiloBoshi Comic Vol. 11 1/2 that was distributed free at the theaters in Japan on the first day of the movie opening (limited to 5,000,000 copies, first come, first served) you can also buy Movie pamphlet (movie program) for 800 yen, and it includes 8 pages of newly written FMA comic that bridges the FMA main comic and this movie, with some very early scenes of the movie. (This booklet also includes message from Mr. Yuuichi Shinpo who wrote the scripts for the movie ...says he himself has been a big FMA fan ^^... , interviews, and other stuff. ^^)


ETA: For complete scans (all 8 pages) and translations, please go to FMA Sacred Star of Milos movie theater pamphlet thread. (Waring! the content of this mini-manga contains some movie spoiler!)

The following are 2 pages (out of total of 8 pages) from this "bridge" comic on the FMA MiloStar movie program,

(scan courtesy of amber1003)



My quick translations below (for the part I can read... ^^)

Right side page:

Ed: "With his abilities he could have broken out of the prison anytime he wanted."
---------------------------
Ed: "And, he uses that strange Alchemy..."
---------------------------
Roy: "Are you saying---- " "An Alchemy that's unknown to us?"
---------------------------
Ed: "......." "There must be more to this...."
---------------------------
SFX (Train) Roar
---------------------------
Al: "This is the first time we're traveling to that Western region."
Ed: "We'll find out what's out there once we get there."
---------------------------
Ed: "There must be a way there," "To get back our bodies."


Left side page: (story jumps to the fighting scene on the train roof-top, and there is a caption above that, but it's missing from the scan)

Ed: "Hey, Mr. Chimera,"
---------------------------
Ed: "Are you traveling to Table City by yourself?"
(Ed transmutes his automail into his usual knife)
---------------------------
Wolf Chimera: (seeing Ed transmuted his automail into a knife) "You're..." "Fullmetal Alchemist!"
---------------------------
Caption: Each thought & concern intertwine with thoughts & concerns of others -----
Winry: "Ms. Riza, where is Table City located?"
Riza: "In the level 3 Military Alert Zone." "Entry restrictions for the area is in effect also."
---------------------------
Roy: "If this gets escalated with the way it is going now, this could turn into another boarder incident between Amestris and Creata..."
---------------------------
<I can't read the last caption>



And, that's all the scan we have for this mini-comic for now. ^^

Thank you for bringing the scan and taking the time to translate, Tombow! You're awesome! biggrin.gif

Thank you, Michiyo-!

Top one is the interview with the movie's Animation Director, Kiyotaka Oshiyama and Unit Animation Director, Shingo Natsume (at the bottom), and comments from Movie Director, Kazuya Murata and Character Design & Chief Animation Director, Kenichi Konishi on the left page. The comments from Director Murata says that Animation Director Oshiyama and Unit Animation Director Natsume were brought in as assistants to Director Murata and Character Design & Chief Animation Director Konishi, but they ended up having much bigger roles, as those 4 of them each contributed their opinions and ideas for each scene design, and each drawing of characters in each scene, from the characters' movements, to how the facial expressions should be, etc. etc.... ^^

Second one is the interview with Ed's Japanese VA, Romi Park-san. She said that for this movie she visited the bones studio first time, after 8 years of doing VA for Ed character, and cried when she witnessed the staff spending many days for 2 seconds of movie scene.
And about the last dialogue of the movie... according to the script book Roy was to speak the last quote, but during the recording, there was a discussion among the staff and VA casts, and in the end they made recording of the quote by Ed, and by Roy, and Movie Director, Kazuya Murata along with Sound Director, Masafumi Mima and some others made the final decision. (You have to watch the movie to find out which version was used. ^^) And then she made some comments on the new Ed figure. smile.gif

The last one is general promo of the movie and FMA manga vol. 11 1/2. smile.gif
