The fact that the Sci-Fi series “Altered Carbon – The Immortality Program”, which will be launched on Netflix on February 2, 2018, is not exactly squeamish, is also confirmed by a look behind the scenes, which we can exclusively present to you first.
Over 300 years in the future, it is possible to digitize human consciousness and transfer it to new bodies. Death is thus – against appropriate payment – not lasting. This also benefits the wealthy Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), who is convinced after a transfer of his ego, however, that his last incarnation was murdered. To get to the bottom of it, he hires the ex-elite soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), which must first be brought back from the dead.
In his exploration of the rough, “Blade Runner” world of “Altered Carbon – The Immortality Program,” Takeshi quickly becomes powerful enemies. Since then fisticuffs are not lacking, in whose emergence the above featurette now offers an exciting brief insight.
Netflix users will be able to find out from February 2, 2018 on, how the bloody fighting scenes, for which the actors around Suicide Squad star Joel Kinnaman have trained daily for several hours, can be seen in the final series adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s novel. Then all ten episodes of the first “Altered Carbon” stats will be available to the streaming service.
