SDCC 2017: New ‘Death Note’ Clip “Light Meets Ryuk”
  |  @   |  

Netflix’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 previewed a pair of upcoming titles. One was Bright, a movie starring Will Smith and directed by David Ayer which is set in an alternate present-day Los Angeles where fantasy creatures such as orcs and elves exist. The other was their live-action adaptation of Death Note, the popular Japanese manga.

We’ve already seen an official trailer for the movie, which included some peeks at Ryuk. For Comic-Con, they shared a clip of the scene where Light meets Ryuk for the first time.

Continue below to check it out.


Light Turner finds a supernatural notebook and uses it to mete out death, attracting the attention of a detective, a demon and a girl in his class.

The movie is directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, Blair Witch, Godzilla vs. Kong), and stars Nat Wolff, Margaret Qualley, Lakeith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, Shea Whigham, and Willem Dafoe as the voice of Ryuk.

Death Note arrives on Netflix on August 25th.

  1. I don’t like that they went for a movie when they should have plenty of material for a series. Seems like a wasted opportunity.
