Trivia

Producer Roy Lee stated that the film is "definitely for adults. It has a zero chance it will get below an R-rating." He also stated that it "will be one of the first manga adaptations that feels very grounded but still has fantastical elements." See more »

Goofs

When "L" is chasing Light Turner through the diner, he jumps up and runs along the counter. One can clearly see "L" slips and is about to fall on his butt; however, it switches to a different camera angle and he has not fallen but is still running. See more »
