Viz Pictures was nice enough to hook us up with some free passes to the premiere screening of Death Note: The live-action movie. So we decided to take our camera's and find out what people think of the film!
VIZ has released the first of the two Death Note live action films in theaters throughout the U.S., in what appears to be the start of a new regular treatment for high profile movies they will release, as they also have plans for a similar theatrical release of Bleach.
This English language theatrical premiere of Death Note was held in New York’s Chelsea Cinemas (a great theater by the way) and played to an almost capacity crowd.
Both Death Note films were directed by Japanese Kaiju heavyweight Shusuke Kaneko (Gamera 2, Gamera 3, and Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Daikaiju Sogougeki), with whom we sat down and talked to last year for the Japanese language premiere of Death Note. You can check out our interview with him here.
Stay tuned for more coverage of on-the-spot anime and manga happenings as A!PON launches into season two.
