Posted by March 22, 2017 Comment

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming original film Death Note, based on the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

The film is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).

Death Note will premiere exclusively on Netflix on August 25th.
