Viz Gets ‘Death Note’ Live Action Features
Theatrical and DVD Rights
Viz Pictures has acquired the North American theatrical and DVD rights to the two live action Death Note features: Death Note and Death Note: The Last Name.
The first Viz screenings will be at Austin’s Fantastic Fest this weekend and at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival in November.
Ray’s take: hit me but I haven’t seen any Death Note at all. Just never got around to it. I did remember the movies did very well in when they came out here in Taiwan. From everything I’ve heard, it’s recommended.
