L Confronts Light in This ‘Death Note’ Clip (Netflix)

Netflix recently dropped the trailer for Adam Wingard’s Death Note, which will be playing God on the streaming service August 25th. Now, Netflix has provided Bloody with a clip featuring “Light”, a high school student who begins a crusade to rid the world of evil when he finds a notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it. Here, he begins a game with “L”, the prodigy detective behind the investigation of the serial killer known as ‘Kira.’

Death Note stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars) as Light Turner; Margaret Qualley (The Nice Guys, The Leftovers) as Mia Sutton; Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton, Dope, Short Term 12) as “L”; Paul Nakauchi (Alpha and Omega) as Watari; and Shea Whigham(“Agent Carter”, “Boardwalk Empire”) as James Turner.

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.

Death Note is produced by Roy Lee (The Ring, The Grudge, Blair Witch, The Departed), Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Sherlock Holmes), Jason Hoffs (Edge of Tomorrow), and Masi Oka (“Heroes Reborn”, “Hawaii-Five-0”).

    I can’t wait for the BD review of this! I’ve heard it’s not nearly as good as the original, but since it’s directed by Wingard will Brad or anyone at BD be able to write an unbiased review? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Why are you still trying to make this movie happen and why is it even covered in a horror movie site,if you watched the anime or manga you know Death Note is anything but horror . But hey this is the same site that still covers the Walking Dead for some unknown reason so what do i know ?

    My feelings were mixed. The whitewashing is always a big turnoff for me, but I LOVE the director. The trailers have all been really meh and this clip showcases some terrible acting so I’ll probably end up skipping the movie.
