Altered Carbon, the Netflix adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel of the same name, looks pretty damned intense in every way possible. If you’ve seen the trailer, you know this series has a slick, dark look that has been repeatedly compared to Blade Runner. The story, action, and VFX all seem, well, intense.
In the BTS video below, the actors talk about just how intense the crazy fight scenes can feel. Will Yun Lee (Kovacs) competed in Tae Kwon Do most of his life and Joel Kinnaman (also Kovacs – don’t ask, just watch) really enjoys the fight training. Stunt Coordinator Larnell Stovall had great things to say about Martha Higareda’s (Kristen Ortega) dedication to training.
Check out some of the insanity you’ll be seeing when Netflix premieres Altered Carbon on Friday, February 02, 2018.
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.
