By popular demand, NCM Fathom and Viz Pictures bring Live Action "Death Note II: The Last Name" to select movie theatres nationwide for two nights only--Wednesday, Oct. 15 and Thursday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. (local)! "Death Note II: The Last Name" is the sequel to, and an immediate continuation of, "Death Note," brought to U.S. movie theatres earlier this year by VIZ Pictures and Fathom. This exclusive event will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of "Death Note II: The Last Name"and a unique look at the talent behind the characters. Written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, "Death Note II: The Last Name" begins as Light Yagami joins the investigation team in pursuit of the serial killer known as "Kira." While L still strongly suspects that Light is "Kira," Light Yagami continues to seek out the real name of L so he can kill him with his Death Note. Making things even more unpredictable are the "Eyes of Death," given to the second Kira, enabling the owner to know the true identity and lifespan of any person. Adding further confusion for the authorities, a new rash of murders attributed to the Death Note occurs all over the world and is attributed to "the Second Kira." Light Yagami learns the identity of the other Kira and wants to join forces to get rid of L. Will L be able to catch "Kira" before he gets killed? Who will be the last name written in the Death Note book? Please note: This event is not officially rated but should be treated as equivalent to an "R" rating.
