NETFLIX Announces Date For ALTERED CARBON Debut
Splashers, Netflix spending $9 Billion on original content this year mean plenty of great announcements for programming. The newest announcement comes for Altered Carbon. Starring Joel Kinnaman (the new Robocop, Suicide Squad), many think this is Netflix’s answer to Blade Runner. They might be right, this looks just as colorful and futuristic as any sci-fi fan could hope for. And, in a world where death isn’t a big deal, the only thing to be afraid of is missing a good sale. Am I right? Altered Carbon launches Friday, February 2 on Netflix. Let’s check out the new trailer.
Consciousness can be digitized, human bodies are interchangeable and death is no longer permanent… Welcome to the world of Altered Carbon, where no BODY lives forever.
Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself. The series is produced by Skydance Television for Netflix.
