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.
