quietearth [Celluloid 01.27.08] movie apocalyptic news thriller drama

You'll have to forgive us, this news is a bit old but I had initally ignored this for some reason. After breaking down and watching the trailer the other day, the unmistakable rapid spread of red signifying death or plague warranted a post here. Directed by Hideo Nakata who did the original Ringu films as well as The Ring Two, this is a spinoff of the two "Death Note" movies, neither of which I've seen, but check out the trailer following and let us know what you think.

"The human whose name is written in the Death Note shall die."

A God of Death dropped a notebook which had the power to kill people. Light Yagami (Tatsuya Fujiwara) found the notebook and tried to become Kira, God of a new crime-free world by executing criminals with the notebook. L (Kenichi Matsuyama), a genius detective confronted Kira who was his toughest enemy ever. At last, L managed to close the case of Kira but had to pay a painful price.

After making the hardest decision ever, another serious case confronts L.
There are only 23 days left and without his best partner Watari (Shunji Fujimura), L has to solve the case all by himself for the very first time.

A boy and a girl hold the keys to solving this case and L had to get into a desparate situation to protect the kids. L has solved many cases previously through monitors and using his brain power as he has never appeared in public as L. This is the first and last case that he has to deal with people in person...

A person who obtains the most horrible weapon "Death God" created by human says the same thing as Kira... "I am going to change the world."

What will happen to L? Is anything in the world going to be changed? The turbulent 23 days even L cannot predict awaits him. The most exciting and moving countdown has now begun!"

I'm very excited about this film and a little bummed I'll have to wait so long for it to come to America. It looks really moving and I hear great things about kenichi's performance.
