The teaser revealed the three main casts Light (Nat Wolff), L (LaKeith Stanfield) and Mia (Margaret Qualley). He wasn’t shown but his voice was heard but Willem Dafoe will be Ryuk. Here is the plot synopsis:
Death Note tells the story of high schooler Light, who comes across the Death Note notebook, which gives him the power to kill others simply by writing their name in the book. The Death Note comes with a few extra rules, however, but Light begins to use his powers to kill those he sees unfit to live.

Sword Art Online
Mentioned at the Sakura-Con 2016, Aniplex has unveiled the new visual for the 2017 anime film Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale.
At the official Sword Art Online site, Shingo Adachi designed the “Ordinal Scale” designs for the characters. Characters such as Kirito, Asuna, Lisabeth, Silica, Sinon and Klein are redesigned. They can be viewed at the site. The site mentions that the previous voice actors from the anime will return. The site also describes the story’s new device for the game and story Ordinal Scale called “Augma”.
A next-generation, wearable multi-device that looks like a pair of small headphones. In terms of size and portability, it is far superior to the existing VR machine “Amusphere.” Augma doesn’t have a full-dive function, however, its AR function is greatly enhanced to compensate for it. It can transmit visual, audio and tactual sensation data to players while they are awake, thus enabling the users to enjoy fitness and health management like a game.
“Ordinal Scale,” an ARMMO-RPG that was designed exclusively for “Augma.” Following its release, it has become the most discussed game due to its advanced technology. In this game, players can raise their rank by collecting items that appear in various places in the real world and by defeating monsters. This “Ranking System” is the main feature of the game, and in this system, each player’s status is determined by their rank which is indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number. As the result, high ranking players are given overwhelming power and often rank has become a major factor in deciding the outcome of a PvP battle.
This movie takes place after Mother Rosario and it is an original story created by Reki Kawahara.
Also being released on 2017 and in the works, a live-action adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s series Fullmetal Alchemist is in the works. The movie is planned to be release on 2017.

The film will begin from June to August of 2016 in Italy, It will also use CGI effects to create fantasy elements like Alphonse Elric’s Armor.
