The New Death Note movie, Death Note: Light Up the World, is premiering later this month, and the deadly Kira has definitely returned in several brand new videos, as he has prepared several messages.

They also started streaming two new TV ads titled “Justice Version” and “Panic Version”

Based on Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s bestselling thriller manga, the film is set to premiere on October 29, 2016. The film’s story will be set 10 years after the events of the previous Death Note live-action films, which starred Tatsuya Fujiwara as Kira/ Light Yagami, and Kenichi Matsuyama as L. This means that the film will have an original story not found in the manga, anime, stage play, or the live-action TV series, and since the movie will be set 10 years after the first one, it will feature new characters. You can check out the three new leads through this link.

The new film will involve more Death Notes and Shinegami than previous adaptations, and will be directed by Gantz live-action movie director, Shisuke Sato. The film is slated to premiere on October 29, 2016.
