SuperNatural Roxy

Have you heard of a new movie called DeathNote? Coming to theatres for two nights only – Tuesday, May 20th and Wednesday, May 21st at 7:30pm -- DeathNote is based on the hit supernatural action-mystery manga. The DeathNote is a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god named Ryuk. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies. DeathNote, the movie dubbed in English, follows the story of Light Yagami, an ace student who finds the DeathNote and vows to use its power to rid the world of evil. When criminals mysteriously begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective "L" to investigate, and he is soon hot on the trail of Light, who is forced to re-evaluate his noble goal. Both Light and L believe themselves to be on the side of justice, and the two match wits as they attempt to prove which one of them is "good" and which one of them is "evil."

Now, if I had my choice of one supernatural characteristic, it would not be to kill other people, as I’m not prepared to judge who is good and who is evil. Nah, I’d be more interested in being a modern-day Cupid, helping people to fall in love by shooting my love darts into my targets. I’ve tried my hand at matchmaking, and I do take credit for my best friend from high school, Melissa, falling in love with a scuba dude during our vacation in the Bahamas and ending up married to him ten (10!) years later. But it would still be cool to have some supernatural matchmaking abilities.

One day I’m sure there will be a SuperNatural Roxy movie, but in the meantime, NCM Fathom and Viz Pictures bring Live Action DeathNote to select movie theatres nationwide for two nights only. Don’t miss your chance to see DeathNote larger-than-life on the big screen…click any of the DeathNote links in this post and enter your zip code into the theatre search feature to purchase your advance tickets online. This exclusive event includes a specially produced 20-minute feature on how the popular manga translates to live action, as well as the hit theme song “Dani California” performed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers!

As always, almost-5-year-old Matthew-in-the-Corner, this event is not suitable for your viewing pleasure – DeathNote is not officially rated but should be treated as equivalent to an "R" rating.
