New Netflix Death Note Trailer Hated Hard




Netflix have posted a new trailer for its highly despised Death Note live action series, garnering the usual amount of inflammatory hatred from those who don’t want a western iteration of the glorious Nipponese franchise but bound to rake in a significant amount of income anyway due to all the attention it has mustered through the controversy.

The new trailer, which has unsurprisingly been bombarded with numerous dislikes:

Whether or not the “abominable” Death Note series will be good or bad can be determined by hardened Death Note enthusiasts come its August 25th Netflix premier.

    It doesn't look bad to me. Different, yes, but not necessarily bad, at least for a trailer.

    Yeah. Could've been much worse. Definitely an improvement over the first trailer. I'll give it a chance.

    Willing to give it a shot. If it sucks I'll be no worse off and if its good I'll rub it in the face of all the Hardcore Death Note fans that will hate it regardless.

    Original Light : Trusts no one
    Netflix Light : Shares his plans with a girl

    Original L : Super secretive, only shows up as a giant L on a screen
    Netflix L : Talks to the press in person

    This is Dragonball Evolution all over again. The director doesn't understand the source material

    Not judging the final product because it might be shit, but this isn't supposed to be a 1:1 adaptation.

    L: super secretive, reveal himself to Light...

    Sure, have L be a complete mystery for half the runtime. It's not like you have to provide a complete character in only 2 hours. Oh, wait...

    L is supposed to be a famous detective, how do you get famous if you never show up anywhere? Hackers are about the only exception to that idea. I mean think of it from an adults point of view (like his boss or co worker), would you take someone like L seriously if he wasn't a known entity? Those complete fantasy ideas that we overlook in anime form but they don't work in live action as well because we're able to identify them more easily.

    You realize that's what Sherlock Holmes did? He did not actually go out there grabbing for the fame, the cases were offered to him because nobody else could get even close to solve them. That's the reason cops didn't like him, he made them look like idiots. L follows the same concept almost to the letter.

    Your argument has already been hit by the other posters, but I'll add this:

    Banksy is a famous yet anonymous graffiti artist. He didn't have to show up at a press conference. People take Banksy seriously. e.g. Going to his temporary amusement park Dismaland.

    Sometimes a touch of fantasy works in real life. :)

    Not sure what you mean, even if all he did was call in tips and leave his nickname he could still get famous if he was right all the time.

    L's american name is Lebron or Leroy...can't spell black wihout L.

    His character will probably die in the film when he is pulled over by a policeman and shot due to "resisting arrest."

    I'm not a racist but why the fuck is L a black guy?

    The same reason Light is now white.

    Because Netflix is Jewish (anti-white).

    These better be in the movie:

    "I'll take a potato chip... and eat it!"

    "Keikaku doori."

    Only william Dafoe is the right cast to play Ryuk.

    I'll tell you why this will be bad. Because it won't follow the original story exactly. Because this story is written by someone much, much less talented than Tsugumi Ohba.

    My major issue with this is it looks like they're just turning it into some big ol action series with guns and explosions all the time.

    Death Note had those, but they were very rare and didn't take away from the mentality of the series.

    Yeah, when I watched the trailer, it looked like a parody with all those action scenes. It's the Hollywood "not enough car chases and explosions" talking there.

    Ryuk seems awesome. Also, did I see that right? Did they make L into a black guy? This shit actually looks worth watching! If only for how bad it might actually end up being.

    and here come the weebs with their mindless hate... They did the same thing to the Ghost in the Shell movie even though it was not just a decent to good movie but probably one of the very best live adaptations ever made of an anime.

    And here come the weebs calling people weebs.

    Ghost in the Shell was an entertaining enough movie. I didn't regret spending the money in a movie ticket. It wasn't a good movie, though, just decent. Only a fanboy who hasn't watched movies broadly in his life would call it good.

    Ghost in the Shell was a pretty generic Hollywood movie. You can consider good if you have Transformers as your baseline but doesn't make the source justice. The special effects were cool but they overused holograms.

    So, when you hate it, you actually help promote it. Nice.

    I can't fathom all of the hatred. It's a great story that seems tailor made for local adaptions into a variety of settings and cultures. They do realize that "The Magnificent Seven" in no way disrespects "Seven Samurai", right? If they were seeking to just make the show exactly the same but without Asian characters it would be one thing. But keeping the core story and changing the setting and context to said setting seems fine. It's how great stories spread.

    To go back to Kurosawa he would be largely unknown in the west if movie fans did not learn of his work as the inspiration for their favorite things such as Magnificent Seven and Star Wars. They then in turn went exploring and found something wonderful. The same will happen here.

    im actually totally okay with death note having a western re imagining.
    it already has 3 good japanese live action movies. and a decent japanese live action tv drama. on top of the anime, manga, and novel. they legitimately have all mediums covered. let them do something new.

    Unfortunately its Netflix. Basically nothing on netflix can flop really. Netflix shows also arent measured in the same way as tv, movies blurays etc. All they have to do us advertise it heavily amd if someone clicks it for 10 seconds..turns away its considered success. Anyone can casually check out anything on netflix when its all bundled together and no matter what it is, its easy to spin it as a success no matter qhat.

    So Light went from "I'm going to kill all the bad guys because I believe that is justice" to "I was going to shoot the school next week but now I will use the Death Note instead".

    Now, in the original Light beat L but Im sure as hell that he is going to lose here ("we are the bad guys now" comment raised the death flag way too high), I'm pretty curious if the ending is going to worse that Ligth vs Nero.
