Death Note is the incredibly popular anime that’s manage to successfully transcend into a live action film on more than one occasion from it’s original manga and then anime. In the UK we’ve not always been so fortunate to get our mits on these live action films, but as usual Death Note is the exception.
Granted it is the second film, but Film4 are holding the UK Premier of Death Note: The Last Name the 7th March – or this Saturday. Unfortunately it’s on at 23.20, but fortunately it’s the subtitled film so it should attract a lot of interest from the subs fans in the world.
Film4 are saying:
(2006) Saturday Night Shocks. Shusuke Kaneko’s sequel to Death Note has Light (Tatsuya Fujiwara), the originator of the original death notes, infiltrating the team investigating him.
