Coming to Netflix August 25 is Death Note. Based on manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the film follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone’s name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.
The Death Note is directed by Adam Wingard and stars Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Lakeith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, Shea Whigham and Willem Dafoe. Check out the teaser:
