A new batch of stills from Netflix’s Death Note have arrived, showing the investigation of the Kira case while Light himself sides with a Death God.
IGN has released six stills for Death Note – five from the movie (featuring the characters portrayed by Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, PaulNakauchi, and Willem Dafoe), and one image showing the behind-the-scenes aspect of the production (featuring director Adam Wingard behind the camera).
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.
Death Note will leave its mark on August 25, 2017 exclusively through the Netflix streaming service. Its cast includes Nat Wolff as Light Turner, Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton, Keith Stanfield as L, Paul Nakauchi as Watari, Shea Whigham as James Turner, and Willem Dafoe as the voice of Ryuk. Masi Oka will also appear in an unspecified role.
