Primarily based on that trailer, the world of Altered Carbon seems similar to the world of Blade Runner: 2049. Most sci-fi followers will not take concern with that comparability, because it seems Netflix spared no expense in bringing this novel to life. If the story for this collection is pretty much as good as this trailer seems, Netflix may have one other hit collection on its palms.
Altered Carbon‘s story does sound attention-grabbing, as viewers are thrust into the long run alongside Takeshi Kovacs (Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman) who, before now, has been useless for 250 years. Kovacs owes his resurrection to Laurens Bancroft, an insanely rich man who needs to seek out out who murdered him in his earlier physique.
