It'll be released soon... But I wonder if it would be good as the writer is not the original writer for the Death Note manga...Nevertheless, we'll still get to see Kinichi Matsuyama as L =) I thought the movie would be a recap of L's past life, but its actually not. It would be about the 23days before L's death....
Can't wait to catch it on screen.
