Arguably the most successful Japanese Manga series of all time, the second movie, Death Note II: The Last Name is finally playing on big screens in Canada, but only Empire Theatres and only Dec 3rd.

Death Note II: The Last Name is a live action feature film based on the Japanese manga series Death Note created by writer Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata. In this amazing story, Light Yagami is a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook called the Death Note. The device was dropped to Earth by a Death God (shinigami) named Ryuk for his own amusement.

The actual Death Note item grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose face they have seen, by writing the victim's name in the notebook. Once charged with this enormous power, Light attempts to rid the world of evil, but this is no easy task... Just ask anyone who has ever tried, cleansing the world of evil is very tricky.
