If you’ve already watched Blade Runner 2049 several times, and are itching for another big sci-fi movie, then Altered Carbon may be up your alley. Maybe. When the first teaser was announced, it seemed to be in that very same vein as Blade Runner 2049. However, if the latest featurette for the series is any indication, it may be a lot more action-oriented than we originally thought.

In this new featurette, we get to go behind-the-scenes of what seems to be some pretty intense fighting. We see the stars Joel Kinnaman and Martha Higareda take on the process of executing these elaborate scenes. We see the beginnings of training all the way to the finished product. Hopefully, the end result are some impressive action scenes. From what is shown in the featurette, it seems that way, but it also seems like there’s the potential for it to be way over-the-top for my taste. We’ll see how it goes.

Below is the synopsis for Altered Carbon:

“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.”
