Netflix Debuts New Trailer For Live-Action ‘Death Note’ Movie

Netflix has released a brand new trailer for its upcoming live-action Death Note movie directed by The Guest and You’re Next helmer Adam Wingard and starring Nat Wolff.

The latest sneak peek offers our best look at yet at Willem Dafoe’s Ryuk, who was only briefly in the first trailer. We also see Keith Stanfield as L and Margaret Qualley as Mia Sutton and get a much better idea of what Wingard has in store for fans with his adaptation of the popular Japanese manga by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata.

You can watch the trailer below.

The film also stars Paul Nakauchi as Watari, Shea Whigham as James Turner and Masi Oka in an undisclosed role. Here’s the official synopsis:

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 arrives on Netflix on August 25th.
