Here’s The Latest Trailer For Netflix’s ‘Altered Carbon’

Netflix has released the latest trailer for their very interesting-looking upcoming Netflix original series Altered Carbon, which is coming our way in the first part of 2018. The film stars Joel Kinnaman, Will Yun Lee, and James Purefoy.

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.

Watch The First Trailer For Netflix’s Upcoming Original Series ‘Altered Carbon’

Netflix has revealed the very first trailer for their upcoming original series Altered Carbon, which hits the streamer next year.

Joel Kinnaman leads the cast of the futuristic show, which is written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Alexander), one which is said to be similar in tone to the very popular Westworld over on HBO.

Netflix has confirmed that House Of Cards will resume production in the early part of 2018.

David Ayer Says Joker Should Have Been The Main Villain In Suicide Squad

There’s something quite refreshing about a filmmaker being very open and honest about the work they deliver – and also something very unusual. In this age of giant studio tentpole projects and high powered marketing machines, it’s most often the case that those involved with a film will predictably either sing its praises, or say nothing at all. To hear the writer-director of what was once one of the most highly anticipated movies of the DC Extended Universe express regret about his own story in conversation with a fan is nothing short of stunning – but that’s what we have with David Ayer, and his 2016 movie Suicide Squad.

While interacting with a fan on Twitter, David Ayer conceded that he regrets not making The Joker – played by Jared Leto – the main villain of the piece.

Yeah it was a big fun silly movie. It could have been a bigger
