Fans of the Japanese Manga “Death Note” will likely be very excited for the live action feature film that is coming to Netflix and is based on this series of supernatural stories. This film is the first American go at the tale which already has had three live action films made in Japan. Check out the full trailer which was released yesterday and then learn some of the cast and overall premise further on down.
The Plot: In Seattle, a young man comes to possess a supernatural notebook, the Death Note, that grants him the power to kill any person simply by writing down their name on the pages. He then decides to use the notebook to kill criminals and change the world, but an enigmatic detective attempts to track him down and end his reign of terror. (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not much of a Manga person but I know a lot of people who are and I love when their characters hit the big screen as well since its good for Geekdom everywhere. As a subscriber to Netflix already for the Marvel Comics series and some other shows, I am going to keep my eyes open for this one and watch it. Perhaps I will even do a film review since that never hurts to have on the website. What do you readers think about this trailer? Are you a follower of the original Manga? Do you think this looks to be faithful to the source material? You can let me know what you think down in the comments. I also placed a couple of Amazon.com links down below for you if you’d like to give a piece or all of the series a chance. Until next time.
