Sci-Fi Series "Altered Carbon" Coming to Netflix on February 2

Sci-Fi Series

What did you think of the trailer for Altered Carbon and how excited are you for this new sci-fi series to come to Netflix?

Altered Carbon (the novel) takes place in the 25th century when humanity has spread across the universe, and technology has advanced to the point where personalities can be stored digitally and transferred from body to body.

Miguel Cotto fight time, date and venue
Judges scored the fight 115-113, 115-113, 116-112 in favour of 29-year-old Ali, who is from NY . Yet, it was Vargas who looked the worse when they left the ring.

The drama follows the story of Takeshi Kovacs (initially played by Will Yun Lee, then Joel Kinnaman - because, you know, sleeves), an elite soldier who was a killer for hire who became a revolutionary.

The NSFW video gives just a tiny taste of the show, from writer-producer Laeta Kalogridis ("Alita: Battle Angel", "Shutter Island"), which is based on Richard K. Morgan's 2002 cyberpunk novel.

Mourinho says De Gea is world's best after Arsenal masterclass
Diving to his right, he stopped Lacazette's strike before somehow reacting quickly enough to block Sanchez's follow-up with his boot.

The series will premiere exclusively on Netflix on February 2, 2018. The trailer previews some of its worldbuilding and action, and hints that the show isn't going to shy away from its source material.

Police deemed it a suicide, however Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and enlists Kovacs to find out the truth. Death is merely an inconvenience in the new sci-fi noir series Altered Carbon.

12 injured in Pakistan's Peshawar firing
The area where the attack took place is a hub for educational institutions in the city, including the University of Peshawar . In 2014, at least six Taliban militants had attacked an army-run school in Peshawar that left around 141 people dead.

Either way, the new series certainly fits with the Netflix ethos of investing more and more in its original programming as competing streaming services crop up and further splinter rights to existing film and TV. Our guess is that with Netflix spending big bucks on this show, the estimates close to 6-8 million per episode, a second season has probably already been ordered as well and is in progress. Joel Kinnaman (of the recent RoboCop remake) stars as Kovacs, who is a biracial man of Japanese-descent in the books that ends up in a white man's body (hopefully the series is more cognizant of that identity dynamic than, say, the new Ghost in the Shell).
