Movie: Death Note

Official Movie Website
Death Note Artbook - Blanc et Noir (5/2)

A press conference for the movie Death Note was held recently. 9 casts attended, including Fujiwara Tatsuya, Matsuyama Ken'ichi, and Seto Asaka. Shinigami Ryuk was also present.

An apple was placed on one of the seats at the press conference. The reason behind this is because in the Manga, only those who touched the Death Note could see Ryuk, so an apple was placed in order to let people know the location of Ryuk. In the movie, Ryuk will be shown through the use of CG.

One of the questions asked during the press conference was "What would you do if your loved ones were killed by Death Note?" Many casts were lost in thought, however, Hosokawa Shigeki (FBI investigator Raye) answered "I'll take revenge without any doubt. I've read many revenge novels, so I know what I should do!" In the press conference, Fujiwara (Yagami Light) mentioned that he enjoyed playing the role of Light, with which comes extreme pressure as well as satisfaction.

Death Note the movie will open to the public on June 17th at Marunouchi Purazeeru and other locations. According to Warner Bros, ticket sales for advance sale has surpassed that of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
