If you are fan of Japanese Manga then there is an event that you should not miss in the next two nights: NCM Fathom and Viz Pictures are teaming up again to allow us to watch the second opus of the Death Note live action movies in a theater experience and dubbed in English.
Death Note II The last Name will be shown in movie theaters nationwide for two nights only – Wednesday, October 15th and Thursday, October 16th at 7:30 PM (local)! besides the movie itself expect an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of DEATH NOTE II: THE LAST NAME, an in-depth interview with Director Shusuke Kaneko and a unique look at the talent behind the characters.
Have a look to this hypertrailer of Death Note II (what is an hypertrailer? It is “a traditional movie trailer on steroids – instead of just watching a flat movie, it has additional functionality such as behind the scenes clips, interviews, wall papers, ringtones, (the list goes on)”):
Trailer of Death Note 2 The last Name
“Light Yagami joins the investigation team in pursuit of the serial killer known as “Kira.” While L still strongly suspects that Light is “Kira,” Light Yagami continues to seek out the real name of L so he can kill him with his Death Note. Making things even more unpredictable are the ‘Eyes of Death’, given to the second Kira, enabling the owner to know the true identity and lifespan of any person. Adding further confusion for the authorities, a new rash of murders attributed to the Death Note occurs all over the world and is attributed to “the Second Kira.” Light Yagami learns the identity of the other Kira and wants to join forces to get rid of L. Will L be able to catch “Kira” before he gets killed? Who will be the last name written in the Death Note book?” (Source: Fathom Events)
I really enjoyed the animated series, so I’m going to catch up with the first Death Note live action movie and will try to see Death Note 2 in one of those selected theaters. Happy!
