Directed by Shinsuke Sato (Gantz, Gantz 2: Perfect Answer) and based on the best-selling Death Note manga series by Tsugumi Ohba, DEATH NOTE: LIGHT UP THE NEW WORLD is set ten years after the confrontation between Kira and L, in a world now afflicted with cyber-terrorism.
The Death Note is a supernatural notebook that grants its user the power to kill simply by writing a person’s name on its pages. Six different Death Notes fall to the human world – the maximum number of notes that can exist at once. In the midst of this, two new individuals inherit the DNA of Light Yagami and L and must play a deadly game of cat-and-mouse once again. Check out the Australian poster and trailer below.
