Mark your calendars! The futuristic sci-fi series, Altered Carbon, will be available for streaming on February 2, 2018. Netflix has also released a teaser trailer that gives us short clips from the series, which is based on Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel of the same name. Also keep an eye out on our gallery, I will be adding promotional photos later.

Joel stars as the main character, Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 300 years and is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent. Kovacs is the lone surviving Envoy after they were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), 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.
