The ‘Death Note’ Live Action Movie Says Goodbye to Warner Bros, May Move to Netflix


Warner Bros. is certainly in a tight spot. After Batman V Superman’s massive second weekend drop, the company is pretty much scrambling to reassure their financial success. Recent rumors suggest that Warner Bros.’ knee-jerk reaction to this was to focus all of their resources on their tentpole franchises, abandoning their smaller-scale and original releases.

While some of these haters can just be written off as sexist trolls upset at the idea of female Ghostbusters, others are pessimistic for completely valid reasons. YouTube users like Boogie2988, Angry Joe, and Comic Book Girl 19 have all expressed their disdain for the film’s trailer. They, along with many other commenters, say that it looks like a cheap nostalgia-based cash-in with bad CG. Still though, only the trailer has been revealed so far, and for all we know, the movie itself could be fantastic.
