Netflix's Death Note trailer gives us our first real look at L
Jun 29 2017 by Francis Osborne
While the movie has not proven to be loyal to the ethnicity of the characters, the setting, and the cultural context, the new Death Note trailer at least proves that the Netflix movie is at least loyal to the dark, mid-2000s emo aesthetic of the original series. But the murders soon attract the attention of the mysterious detective L ("Get Out"/"Atlanta" star LaKeith Stanfield), who risks his life to capture Kira. It was directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch).
In Death Note, a human who possesses the titular journal has the power to kill anyone who's name and face they know.
Although the skeleton of Wingard's Death Note is largely the same, there are some key differences.

See the featurette for Death Note below. Standing at nine feet tall, Ryuk, with its arched posture and spiky anatomy, is like some kind of demonic porcupine, but one thing is immediately clear from today's trailer reveal: Willem Dafoe's deep, alluring voice is perhaps the flawless fit for the part. Most glimpses of Ryuk in the teaser have him shrouded in darkness, so it's hard to make out much more than the general shape of Dafoe's costume.
Other than that, Dafoe remains steeped in mystery, and that may be for the best. It is here that a notebook drops from the sky with the words "Death Note" on the cover.
Even Dafoe's chuckle at the end of the clip is wrought with both madness and malicious intent.
Netflix will crank open Death Note in time for August 25th, and you'll be able to catch another fleeting glimpse of Dafoe's supernatural deity via the gallery below.
