Netflix's Death Note Trailer Gets Murdered With Whitewashing Backlash From Fans! Watch & See The Reactions!

no title

This movie might just be the kiss of death for Netflix.

The streaming platform dropped the trailer for its new horror film Death Note, and it's already offending people at first glance.

That's because the story is a beloved supernatural manga and anime series centering around a troubled Japanese teen, and the Netflix version features — you guessed it — a predominantly white cast!

In the trailer, we get a look at a bleach blonde Nat Wolff as genius *Seattle* teen Light Turner, who discovers an evil notebook that gives him the power of life and death.

Things quickly get out of hand as the pages turn, with Light launching into a crusade against the criminals of the world, all while avoiding getting caught by genius detective L (LaKeith Stanfield).

Despite the trailer looking creepy af, the supernatural drama is already getting haunted by fans who are pissed the new version completely shits on the original canon.

Opponents took to Twitter to express their frustration over Hollywood's "Americanized" adaptations of Japanese manga never starring a Japanese-American lead. We mean, is it too much to ask for equal representation in the portrayal of mass murderers?

Ch-ch-check out the trailer and see how the Twitics responded (below)!

Get Out Loses Its Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score! Guess It Won't Be Joining These Movies In The 100 Percent Club…

Filed under: Film FlickersGIFs

no title

Get Out is killing it at the box office and with critics, but sadly it no longer has its perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The 100% was knocked down to a 99% by just one reviewer, Armond White, who called the film a "get-whitey" movie, comparing star Daniel Kaluuya's looks to the Sambo archetype and LaKeith Stanfield's performance to "an impression of Dave Chappelle's still-puzzling neurosis."

(To which Stanfield tweeted then deleted that "Armond White is a bitch." Ha!)

Hey, what do you expect? This is the guy who got kicked out of the New York Critics Circle for heckling 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen as an "embarrassing doorman." He even panned Toy Story 3.

This does, however, mean Jordan Peele's directorial debut will not be joining the exclusive group of films with a perfect score on the critical aggregator site.

To see the fifteen films that DO have that honor…
