Full Trailer for Adam Wingard's Adaptation of 'Death Note' for Netflix
"Shall we begin?" Netflix has unveiled the full-length trailer (+ a filmmaker featurette) for Adam Wingard's adaptation of Death Note, based on the very popular Japanese manga/anime series. Wingard is the director of the new Blair Witch as well as You're Next, The Guest, and A Horrible Way to Die. Death Note stars Nat Wolff (seen in Paper Towns) as the teen who comes across a book that allows him to kill anyone without any risk of danger himself. But of course there's a catch. Also starring Keith Stanfield, Shea Whigham, Margaret Qualley, Willem Dafoe and Masi Oka. This actually looks better than expected, I will be watching this. Plus, I'll see anything with Keith Stanfield in it, he's awesome and looks killer in this.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Adam Wingard's Death Note movie, from Netflix's YouTube:
A student named Light Turner (Nat Wolff) who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone begins a crusade against evil in order to rule the world as a benevolent human god. Then a deadly game of cat and mouse begins when a reclusive detective begins to track down the young man, attempting to end his reign of terror once and for all. Death Note is directed by American horror filmmaker Adam Wingard, of the films A Horrible Way to Die, You're Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch previously. The screenplay is written by Charley Parlapanides & Vlas Parlapanides and Jeremy Slater; adapted from the popular Japanese horror manga "Death Note" written by Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata. Netflix will debut Death Note streaming exclusively starting August 25th later this summer. Anyone interested in this one?

Let's hope this is a return to form. Looks decent enough.

G-d I hope this turns out better than other manga IPs.

To some point, it's interesting idea. but then again, it's telling that today's society works only through violence as a shortcut ... It would be interesting to follow this, but I don't expect too much ...

I think you're right. "To some point" but I think that will be very short.

Probably, it doesn't look like it's going in some interesting direction, no matter how interesting it sounds. But as already said, remains to be seen ...

And THAT'S the entire point of this story. That violence as a shortcut is the wrong idea.

Hopefully. But then again, when there's a film made in that respect, I see also attractive part of that idea for someone. So, it remains to be seen. I'm definitely not convinced in what you say until I see the otherwise ...
