Japan’s popular manga series, Death Note’s popularity is still huge. Death Note live action’s new film has revealed a teaser poster with the official name of the title, “Death Note Light up the NEW world.”
The story takes place 10 years after the last Death Note movie. 6 death notes are dropped into a human’s world by reapers and that causes another chaos in the world. The story evolves around 3 main characters: Tsukuru Mishima (played by Masahiro Higashide), an investigator at the Death Note Task Force Special Unit, Ryuzaki (Sousuke Ikematsu), an L’s genetic successor and also a world famous detective and Yuuki Shien (Masaki Suda), a cyber-terrorist who worships Kira. Although it is a sequel film after both Light and L died, their faces still make an appearance on the official poster and it seems like they will be heavily involved in this film. This movie will be screened starting October 29th at theaters in Japan.
