Netflix revealed its first teaser trailer for their live-action Death Note movie.
Netflix describes the film:
What if you had the power to decide who lives and who dies?
We suggest you obey the rules. Based on the famous 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 movie is being directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next). Nat Wolff (Paper Towns) stars as Light, Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out) as L, and Willem Dafoe (Boondock Saints) as Ryuk. Death Note premieres exclusively on Netflix August 25th.
