“Shall we begin?” Today, Netflix released a new trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of the popular anime series Death Note.
Based on the Japanese manga 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.” An anime adaptation of the series ran for 37 episodes between 2006 and 2007.
Netflix‘s film adaptation stars Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, Shea Whigham, Masi Oka, and Willem Dafoe. Death Note is slated for release on August 25th.
