Netflix has released the first of what I assume will be a few more character posters for the upcoming live-action English adaptation of the famed manga, Death Note. The first poster shows Ryuk, the shinigami that drops his Death Note to keep himself occupied out of boredom.
Written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who finds a supernatural notebook, realizing if the owner writes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Becoming infatuated with his newfound godlike-status, he sets off on a murderous spree to rid the world of crime and tyranny. Netflix is directed by Adam Wingard, and hits August 25th.
