Death Note Coming to U.S. Screens!
Finally, after years of talking about it as if it were some Holy Grail of unfound cinema, you guys will finally get a chance to see the first Death Note (review) in theaters next month!
Word came over the ANN yesterday that Viz Pictures has announced a two-day only screening of Death Note on May 20th and 21st in just over 300 American theaters through National CineMedia’s NCM Fathom. Not only will the screenings be presented in a high-def digital projection system, meaning they’re going to look amazing, but they will also include a 20-minute featurette about the making of the film featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
Ticket will be available early to subscribers of the Shonen Jump e-mail newsletter, while the general public will be able to get them either at the box office or at the Fathom Events website starting on April 21st.
The second film, Death Note: The Last Name (review), will also be coming to theaters, though it’s only listed as “coming soon” for now. I hope you can make it out to see this sucker on the big screen; while not 100% horror, it is a very cool movie from top to bottom and a great choice for those of you craving something different.
