Netflix has released a second trailer for their upcoming manga-to-live action adaptation of Death Note. This one goes deeper into the relationship between Light (Nat Wolff) and Ryuk (Willem Dafoe) as the former learns about the book and begins playing with its deadly powers.
Additionally, a featurette for the film that interviews the cast and crew of the film can also be seen.
Willem Dafoe and Nat Wolff star alongside Margaret Qualley, Keith Stanfield, Paul Nakauchi, and Shea Whigham. Roy Lee (The Ring) and Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes) are producing Death Note with Jason Hoffs and Masi Oka.

Death Note will be hitting Netflix on August 25th.
Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student (Wolff) who comes across a supernatural notebook that gives him the ability to kill anyone by writing their name while picturing their face. Drunk on power, he begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.
