‘Death Note’ Producer Responds to Whitewashing Claims, Says It’s ‘Somewhat Offensive’ to New Netflix Movie

28 April 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Back in March, an online petition popped up over on Care2, calling for a boycott of Netflix’s newest feature film, the Adam Wingard-helmed “Death Note.” The petition was seemingly sparked by the release of the film’s first trailer, which showed off actor Nat Wolff as the film’s lead, a role that is Japanese in the original source material. As of this writing, the petition has nearly 16,500 signatures (close to its goal of 17,000).

Over at BuzzFeed, “Death Note” producer Roy Lee has a few words for the sudden and swift backlash to his latest property, most of them just kind of baffled (and more than a little ill-informed). The producer is no stranger to adapting remakes of popular Asian properties for Hollywood consumption, including “The Ring,” “The Grudge” and “The Departed,” but he says that the ire he’s experiencing with “Death Note” is totally new to him. »

Death Note Producer On Whitewashing Criticism: It’s An “Interpretation Of The Story In A Different Culture”

28 April 2017 6:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What’s the one thing Ghost in the Shell, Doctor Strange, Iron Fist and Netflix’s forthcoming Death Note adaptation have in common? Barring the fantastical story elements and built-in fanbases, all four high-profile productions have been accused of whitewashing major characters, which has led many to call Hollywood’s representation of Asian people into question.

And so, after the casting of Danny Rand and The Major (Aka Motoko Kusanagi) fuelled heated debate online, the Internet’s eye of scrutiny has turned toward Death Note after Nat Wolff landed the role of Light Yagami in the morbid Netflix original. Because of the IP’s Japanese roots, many consider the decision to go with Wolff in lieu of an Asian actor to be in poor taste – or worse, overtly racist – but seasoned producer Roy Lee firmly believes that Netflix’s star-studded rendition of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s iconic manga »

Watch: Check out Sarah Michelle Gellar in One of Her Very First Commercials

7 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Before scream queen Sarah Michelle Gellar starred in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “The Grudge,” she appeared in a number of Burger King commercials. We dug up some of Gellar’s clips from the ‘80s and discovered that she doesn’t mess around when it comes to burgers. In this 30-second spot, the itty bitty star sports purple overalls and asks viewers if she looks “20 percent smaller” in size. In a matter-of-fact tone, she explains that every time she goes to McDonald’s to order a regular burger, she ends up with one that contains 20 percent less meat than the one Burger King makes. It’s “unbelievable!” Her solution for kids who want to show McDonald’s how they really feel? Go to Burger King. Watch the clip below to see a young Gellar deliver a “very big message for grown-ups.” Check out our commercial audition listings! »

‘Sadako vs. Kayako’ Review (Shudder Exclusive)

27 January 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Runa Endo, Elly Nanami, Mizuki Yamamoto, Tina Tamashiro, Aimi Satsukawa, Misato Tanaka, Masahiro Kômoto, Masanobu Andô, Rintaro Shibamoto, Maiko Kikuchi | Written by Takashi Shimizu, Kôji Suzuki | Directed by Kôji Shiraishi

In the battle of horror film icons, it is fair to say that the dream match-up was of course Freddy vs. Jason. A fun film, it could never live up to the expectation created around it, which could be a problem faced with Sadako vs. Kayako. Pitting The Ring against The Grudge is something of a dream match, but can it live up to expectation?

When the cursed video tape is once again watched, two friends find themselves on a race against time to stop the curse. With the help of spiritual medium Kyozo (Masanobu Andô) their may be a chance, by pitting Sadako against Kayako the known ghost who haunts a nearby house. When another girl is cursed by the house though, »
