We’ve already seen a great black and white poster featuring shinigami Ryuk, which was released when Netflix showed off the full trailer for the upcoming live action Death Note adaptation.
Now we’ve got one showing teenager Light Turner (Nat Wolff), who picks up a notebook that has the power to cause death to anyone whose name is written in it.
Light believes he can change the world, by writing down the names of those he feels deserve to die, and the stare he’s giving us from that poster suggests nothing has changed. Is he a saviour or a sadist?
Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the Netflix original film is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You’re Next) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as the voice of Ryuk.
Death Note launches globally on Netflix on 25 August 2017.
