[Movie Discussion] DEATH NOTE series

Post by kellzerz » Feb 13th, '06, 01:07

I didn't see anyone post this yet...and since it is a LIVE ACTION DEATH NOTE MOVIE, I thought that it would be appropriate to post it here!

So here are the websites with all of the information I could find out so far!
http://www.fangoria.com/news_article.php?id=5564
And here is the main website:
http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/deathnote/

Not much information yet. Only that it is coming out in June and there will also be a second movie as well. And the guy who is playing Raito is Tatsuya Fujiwara.

Is anyone as excited about this as I am???

I hope the actor who plays L will live up to my expectation!
It'll be hard to protray the weirdness that is L, but I hope he does well. I miss him so much. T__T
I stop reading DN after he's gone. *sigh* It's not the same.

Yep, one in June, second one in October.
I wonder if the first one will be about L & Light, and the second movie will be about Melo, Near vs. Light.

It is rumored that L will be played by Matsuyama Kenichi, but I don't know how true that is...

I really don't know anything about this guy yet...all I can do now is imagine him with longer hair and hope for the best (until I find out more about his acting history)

L was the reason I loved Deathnote so much! But I still continue to read it since I gotta see how it ends. It is such a crazy manga and so addicting! The twists that happen throughout the story never cease to shock me! ...But L will always be in my heart!

Oh! And here is a picture of the guy playing Raito (Light): Fujiwara Tatsuya

And I know what you mean by it not being the same without L! L was the reason I loved Deathnote so much! But I still continue to read it since I gotta see how it ends.

I'm not sure about Matsuyama, he seems too new to play such a big part although the same could have been said about Fujiwara in Battle Royale and yet he was great in it, and I think he's a great choice for this movie too. :thumleft:

I can't picture either one of them as Light or L. Matsuyama Kenichi.. hmm.. I saw his picture before, I know what he looks like, but I still don't see L in him. He is slightly cute, and I bet he can look extremely cute when he smiles.
Fujiwara Tatsuya. I liked him in BR, but can he look evil enough?

:O :O :O NO FECKIN WAY! :w00t: OMG Death Note effing rocks! I knew they're gonna make a movie out of it sooner or later. But I was hoping for a live action series more >_<. Or perhaps made into anime. 'Coz I want a good looking guy to play L and Raito. >_< Don't know about that Fujiwara Tatsuya. That L guy is from Ichi Ritoru no Namida. He didn't act all that great but it was just an insignificant role so, can't really tell. :scratch: I'm very curious for the movie. This is my fav manga from my fav (and most brilliant) mangaka too, they'd better do a good job. :rambo:

But anyways.. ever since I read Death Note, I've always imagined Matsumoto Jun to play L. He can definitely pull off L's character with his acting ability. And he just looks like L so much.. O_O

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v440/ ... er13gg.jpg[/img]
The way he is slouching and playing with his drink, just like L does. O_O

Oh and the messy hair.. White shirt, blue pants.. See why I'm so convinved Jun should be L? :blink

wachi, I think fujiwara can pull it off, it's not so much evil as angry school boy which he can do..
I still think there will be an anime, I think death note is too popular a manga for there not to be.. and wonder about a series, though I think thats less likely though a lot of people seems to think that will be better.
Though if filming has only started and it's out in June and then Oct I'm wondering on how good it will be and how bad the CGI will be.

It would be a dream come true if they actually had Matsumoto Jun play L! And your pictures are good enough reason for me to agree...Matsujun would be a great L! ...I never realized the similarities...no wonder I love them both! haha!

The first volumes of the manga was good, like really seriously MUST-READ good. But the recent volumes and chapters are just.. boring. Ever since.. I don't want to spoil anything but I think whoever is up-to-date with the manga must know what I mean.

I can see MatsuJun as L.. I can totally see Fujiwara as Raito, but Matsuyama Kenichi as L? That just doesn't click.

I can't wait to see how the movie will turn out to be.
(as much as I love NANA the manga, I was quite disappointed by the movie)

Death Note is definitely not something you can accidently spoil and get away with it. The suspense is what DN is all about.
I think I'll give DN another try.. re-read the whole L vs. Light arc the other night, I read the "tragic" incident with my eyes close. :lol Since I know what was going to happen, I decided not to bother, just going to bring back sad memories.
I don't see Jun as L, he has an arrogant face sometimes. L is BLUNT. I love blunt L. (random)

Another thing about Death Note anime, did anyone see that gif with DN's characters' cameos on Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid? It was a short clip. You can sorta see Light, Misa, and Soichiro Yagami in the background, then L rides by on his bike.

I find the art rather poorly in that little clip. Hope the anime will resemble the manga, just like with Hikaru no Go.

And I think Jun can act blunt if he wants to. L is rather exspressionless if you ask me. It'll be hard for any one to have a face like .. just blank O_O.

But anyways, what is Ryuuku (sp?) going to be like. Will he be CG or what? :blink Because they casted a seiyu for Ryuuku

I read somewhere (I don't remember the exact website right now...) that they will make a CG Ryuuk but they also made a lifesize anamatronic model of him as well that's like 8 feet tall! Can't wait to see what he looks like in the movie! (I need more pictures or screenshots of the filming!)

It's on the site of the first link you posted :thumright:
The film’s creature quotient is supplied by “shini-gami,” an 8-foot-tall, blue-skinned God of Death. Replete with spiked hair and silver skull-and-crossbones-adorned leather wear, shini-gami will be realized mainly through CGI. However, a full-sized, highly detailed animatronic has been built for the production, one that makes for an imposing sight on the Nikkatsu film stage.

I agree...
Let's try to keep this SPOILER FREE if we can...I apologize for this. I really didn't expect it to go that far...
(There is even a 'spoiler' button when you post a reply...let's keep that in mind next time we want to spoil something peeps...sorry again!)

But then again, it's great to use new faces..

I can't wait to see it.. Sounds wicked Interesting!

I've read one chapter of that manga(yeah I really gotta read more I know,I know).Ohwell so far I've read it's an interesting manga ^^..
Well I really liked Fujiwara Tatsuya in both Battle Royale movies,so I'm really exited to see him play Raito ^^!

As for Matsuyama Kenichi..well he looks quite suited for L,but then again..I only know little about both so ^^;..

I doubt Matsumoto will be able to be in it even if he was chosen because of that movie he's doing.. and this one is out in june.. bit too close together though I agree, he does look the part..

I can't wait to see this movie. I'm not a big fan of the series because I haven't read a lot, but hopefully by the time the movie comes out, I'll have read a lot more than I did b4.

I saw this manga around for a while now but only decided to start reading it after I saw this topic in d-a and heard about the upcoming movie.
And, yep, I read the *big* spoiler in this thread so I knew it even before tackling the manga. I'm also planning to stop reading it after *that* happens.
But right now I'm on chapter 36, and I admit it is an extremely addicting manga with a protagonist I hate so much. Gah, I don't like him at all. He is damn smart, but it gives me pleasure whenever I see him mess up from time to time( which is very rare. :glare: )
The most rewarding twist for me was "the first meeting". That was such an exhilarating moment, hehehe.
Before the big spoiler happens, I hope L gets back at him big time. Oh, joy.
But I have this gut feeling that the mangaka is more onto advertising Raito's twisted self.

Well.. okay. I can't say much about Kenichi Matsuyama, he didn't act enough in NANA for me to tell if he's actually good or not. Oh well, hopefully he is.

As for Erika Toda.. I liked her in Nobuta. Her character was so adorable. She doesn't exactly have Misa's looks but she can probably pull it off.

YAY for Tatsuya Fujiwara. He makes such an evil Raito.

LOL that trailer was so JU-ON!! XD Doesn't suit Death Note's theme at all :scratch:

And Misa isn't cute at all like she should be, I really wonder how this movie is going to turn out.

@ Ro~Chan: I'm a BIG BIG Raito fan. 'Don't care much for L, but without him poor Raito gets lonely and bored. XD

I'm disappointed in the casting. None of the actors really fit the characters imo, although I guess you can sort of see tatsuya fujiwara as raito and eriko toda as misa. But Kenichi Matsuyama does not look like L at all nor does he really fit the role.. I didn't get why he was put in to play shin in Nana either (though it didn't really matter since he didn't do much in the movie), but I also so him in 1 liter of tears, and his acting for his small part wasn't very convincing either.

It has some stuff in it now :D It looks pretty cool :D :D It's like one of those online mystery games where you click stuff everywhere...if you click the TV, u can also watch the mini trailer...Oh my, I'm feeling very giddy..so excited about this movie. And that kid from battle royale sure does look like Raito. While I was watching the teaser(which is just flashes of the apple, the note and Raito's face), I feel like cheering for him even if I am an L-fan.

The site looks cool, and the trailer is great! looks very dark and cool..
I don't get why people are complaining about the actors and I don't get what you guys mean by 'doesn't look like' were you thinking they'd be carbon copies or something? ..surely you're only going to know when the movies are out (or the extended trailers) .. I'd say hold any decision or extreme expectations until it's out.
The only thing I will complain about is that in the pictures on the other page, if thats L by the camera then he's not got very long hair and he's wearing shoes (º¸º)

With that said... (^.^)

That CANNOT be L! His hair is too short, and he wear shoes... well he wore it once, without socks, but that was the ONLY time.. and is that shirt the color of white? is it striped? What the.. if that is L, I wanna cry.

I guess if a movie is based on a manga or anime, there will most likely be some complains about the actor/ess, not everyone can be easily satisfy. I just hope they can act, Kenichi's role is quite a challenge for him.. I hope he does L justice.

Well he seems to be the right height and very close to the camera, and the top and trousers kind of match so I'm thinking so..

but what I came here to say was I actually think Matsuyama does look somewhat like L.. (ºº) I mean I can picture him as L.. though it would help if he had longer hair, so I really hope he does in the movie..

Anyone just heard that the Red Hot Chili Pepper's song 'Dani California' is going to be the theme for the Death Note movie (I guess just #1?)

RHCP are good but the song Dani California isn't really suited for it I don't think, I would have thought something more slow or more darker would have been better.

You can see the video for the song here or on youtube.

I just saw the new trailer of it.........whoah its creepy

:w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t::w00t:
I can't wait til the movie comes out!!!

Tetsuya Fuijiwara is so like Raitio. As with the L actor......I guess you never know until you see the film!

Can't wait! I'll be in Japan in August.
I hope (hehe tho i doubt it) that its still in the cinema! :cry:

It'll be hard to protray the weirdness that is L, but I hope he does well. I miss him so much. T__T
I stop reading DN after he's gone. *sigh* It's not the same.
Same here.. but still can't wait to see it!
really great news!

Wow, the site sure is original, I like the design very much ^^ At first I didn't think Fujiwara suited for playing Raito either, though he's an actor I've always liked, but now that I've watched the teaser I'm starting to get convinced he will do well. For the guy who plays L... I almost wanted to kill him when I saw him playing Shin in NaNa, he was my favourite character in the manga and he didn't fit him at all!!

woah I can't wait !!
Death Note is really an excellent manga, so sad no one has thought of releasing it in France :cry: . With this, there's probably no way the movie will arrive here, they really force us to download !
And with nobuta wo produce's Mariko :wub: as Misa Misa, I'm sure it will be great !!

The website is somewhat updated now, Light keeps moving around the room, yesterday he was at the desk now he's on the bed (you can zoom in on him but nothing new is clickable).. at one point a phone was ringing on the desk, I clicked it and it showed more information. I think the trailer is slightly longer now, unless I've just forgotten half of it.

The apple links to tsetaya online which has a death note page with a clip of Tatsuya talking about death note as well as small and large versions of the trailer and this image below (^_^)

Yeah, I think he moves depending on what time of the day it is, the clock says 9:15 now but when he's on the bed I think it's about 11~

Ohh what a let down! Matsuyama Kenichi in my opinion is not worthy of the role for Erru (L). He's a complete flake! I don't really know who Tatsuya Fujiwara is but he seems alright. But.. ARGH!! Matsuyama?!! WHYYYY!!! Aarghh.
Kirari wrote::O :O :O NO FECKIN WAY! :w00t: OMG Death Note effing rocks! I knew they're gonna make a movie out of it sooner or later. But I was hoping for a live action series more >_<. Or perhaps made into anime. 'Coz I want a good looking guy to play L and Raito. >_< Don't know about that Fujiwara Tatsuya. That L guy is from Ichi Ritoru no Namida. He didn't act all that great but it was just an insignificant role so, can't really tell. :scratch: I'm very curious for the movie. This is my fav manga from my fav (and most brilliant) mangaka too, they'd better do a good job. :rambo:

But anyways.. ever since I read Death Note, I've always imagined Matsumoto Jun to play L. He can definitely pull off L's character with his acting ability. And he just looks like L so much.. O_O

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v440/ ... er13gg.jpg[/img]
The way he is slouching and playing with his drink, just like L does. O_O

Oh and the messy hair.. White shirt, blue pants.. See why I'm so convinved Jun should be L? :blink

[img]http://img469.imageshack.us/img469/7779/11004802pu.jpg[/img]
I completely Agree. Matsumoto Jun is much more suitable >:| considering he's played in several different roles, I'm pretty sure he can pull it off way better than Matsuyama could. *runs around screaming*

Oh, Also, I thought Raito should have been played by a person who's less... well... femmy looking. He seemed to me like a very masculine, even chauvinist kind of person. This guy is so femmy. femmy femmy femmy.... *sigh. u____u"

If there was a reason, it'd probably be because he's currently filming a film at the same time as Death Note is being filmed..
I think you just have to trust the directors, they must have auditioned them and thought they would be good for the roles.

just starting reading the manga because of this thread.............
i hope the movie is as good as the manga version, cause so far the guy that plays as L looks convincing enough :P
first i though that the americans that makes this movie, since some of the website is in english a those warner bross logos, but later on , i guess its just because of the 'note' itself is ini English...LOL

There is a new trailer on the website to check out.
It takes a little while to get to it. When you click on the tv, then click on the remote next to it. Press the power (red) button and the tv should become fuzzy. Then click on the remote again and the trailer should load.
The trailer is nice and long...and from the clips, it seems that the movie follows the manga pretty nicely.

Anyway, I found this screen capture from the trailer of what Ryuuk looks like.

Now tell me that isn't creepy...awesome...but creepy...
