Netflix has released a teaser trailer for their original movie “Death Note.” A high school student picks up a leather bound book that has fallen from the sky. On the outside it reads “Death Note.” On the inside “ The human whose name is written in this note shall die.”
Based on the the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, “Death Note” explores the morality of life and death and how playing God is a thin line between good and evil.
The Netflix original film is directed by Adam Wingard (“Blair Witch”} and stars Nat Wolff (“Paper Towns”), Margaret Qualley (“The Left Overs”), 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” premieres on Netflix August 25, 2017.
It was revealed today that Common (“John Wick: Chapter 2,” “Suicide Squad,” “Run All Night,” “Selma,” “Now You See Me”) will star in a new revenge action thriller titled “Quick Draw” from Content Media and Lorenzo di Bonaventura – producer of the blockbuster “Transformers” franchise, “Deepwater Horizon,” “Shooter,” and the “GI Joe” franchise among others.
Harris Goldberg wrote the screenplay and will direct the film. Featuring hyper intense shoot-outs, choreographed car chases, and lightning fast hand-to-hand combat, the action in “Quick Draw” plays out across the mean streets of Los Angeles.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the film with Content Media’s Tom Butterfield and David Greenblatt, through his Greenlit Creative company.

Expanding the universe introduced in the hit franchise that electrified the culture and earned $200 million at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures’ The Purge: Election Year reveals the next terrifying chapter that occurs over 12 hours of annual lawlessness sanctioned by the New Founders of America to keep this country great.
It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent.
