New DEATH NOTE Poster Has Things Looking Dark (Exclusive) | Nerdist
If you had the power to choose who would live and who would die, how would you use it?
Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s classic Death Note manga grapples with this question, as it tells the story of a high school student named Light Yagami who takes it upon himself to use the powers of a supernatural notebook to rid the world of evil people. But no one can play God and remain unchanged. In his pursuit of utopia, Light becomes known as Kira, one of the most prolific murderers who’s ever lived. Next month, Death Note is getting an American adaptation on Netflix, and we’ll soon see if the outcome of Light’s story still leads to a dark place. In the film, Nat Wolff plays Light Turner, the teenager who realizes that the Death Note can kill anyone as long as he knows their name and face.
