Netflix has released the first trailer for Adam Wingard’s (You’re Next, The Guest) upcoming thriller Death Note. Based on the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note “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.”
Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi and Shea Whigham also star. Netflix will be releasing the film on August 25th.
