The first teaser trailer for the forthcoming live-action film, Death Note, is here!

Based on the original Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note "follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life."

The live-action take is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You're Next), and stars Nat Wolff, Willem Dafoe, Keith Stanfield and Margaret Qualley.

Death Note arrives August 25th via Netflix. You can watch the trailer below.
