Damn!!! How ripped is Joel Kinnaman? Netflix is wise to flaunt the 38-year-old Swedish actor’s assets to promote its new sci-fi series, Altered Carbon. I’m still annoyed the streaming service canceled Sense8 but this could ease the pain somewhat.
In the distant future, 300 years to be exact, human consciousness can be digitized and downloaded into different bodies. Brought back to life after 250 years by Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) the richest man on Earth, ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman / Will Yun Lee) must solve Bancroft’s attempted murder for the chance to live again in a world he doesn’t recognize. The series is based on the award-winning 2002 hardboiled cyberpunk science fiction novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon.
Altered Carbon arrives on Netflix February 2, 2018. Check out the official trailer below.
