Netflix’s ‘Death Note’ Remake Looks Scary…And White

It’s a manga remake. So where are all the Asians?

We all already knew Netflix was making the super popular Japanese manga series “Death Note” into a live-action movie, but we didn’t know what it would look like.

Now we do: Netflix released the teaser trailer today, and it looks intense and terrifying and dark AF.

Watch it here:


The new movie is based on a 15-year-old Japanese manga series of the same name that sold more than 30 million copies. The series tells the story of Light Yagami, a smart high school kid who finds a supernatural notebook that can kill anyone whose name Light writes in it. (Yep, we’ve all wanted one of these at some point.)
