With less than two months until the premiere, Netflix has released a full trailer for their live-action Death Note movie. This time, we get a better look at Willem Dafoe’s Ryuk, though still not much.
In addition to that, a filmmaker featurette was also released today. The video shows behind the scenes footage and features Director Adam Wingard and the cast discussing the film.
Lastly, Adam Wingard shared on Twitter the first image of the shinigami Ryuk on Tuesday. The special effects shooting for the film wrapped up last week.
The film stars Nat Wolff as Light Turner, Keith Stanfield as L, Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton, and Willem Dafoe as Ryuk. The film premieres on Netflix August 25th.
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata created the original manga back in 2003 and ended it in 2006. The series spawned an anime series, four Japanese live-action movies, and a live-action TV series.
What do you think of the trailer? Do you think it will live up to the original anime and manga? Let us know!
