“Since then, we’ve been providing an unparalleled pedigree of human sleeves to only the most discerning clientele.” What begins as a calming glimpse into a future where cheating death is easy enough (assuming one has the wealth to transcend their mortal state) quickly descends into darkness, with quick cuts offering a look at a futuristic New York City, fluorescent lights on grimy city streets, an immaculately dressed bartender sipping a drink with one hand and casually holding a rifle in the other, and other assorted forms of gunplay and explosions aplenty.
Described by Netflix as “an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal,” Altered Carbon stars Joel Kinnaman as protagonist Takeshi Kovacs, an interstellar warrior who is revived after years to solve a mystery.
Set in 1983, the adaptation of André Aciman’s novel tells the story of burgeoning romance in a 17th century Italian villa.
Armie Hammer stars along with Timothée Chalamet, who was chosen as Best Actor by the LAFCA.
Elsewhere, October Films is to shine a light on the curious world of the Brussels bubble, following a group of British MEPs as they ride the Brexit roller coaster.
Call Me, directed by Luca Guadagnino, has been on a lot of awards-season shortlists since even before its world premiere at Sundance.
The first trailer for Altered Carbon begins with a commercial of sorts for the fictional product, pitching the concept of “human sleeves,” as sold to elite consumers.
“Centuries ago, mankind found a way to transfer consciousness into a new body, making death a mere inconvenience,” a soothing voice intones, as images of bodies with horizontal slits carved elegantly into the napes of their neck stand against glowing white backdrops.
The role marks Kinnaman once again submerged in a life-after-death science fiction drama, having previously headlined the 2014 remake of Robo Cop. The Los Angeles Film Critics Association named Call Me By Your Name its Best Picture of 2017, extending the momentum for the Sony Pictures Classics title, which also took top honors at last week’s Gotham Awards.
Additional stars include Dichen Lachman of Dollhouse fame, who knows a thing or two about science fiction shows where actors can assume multiple roles, in other words. A24’s The Florida Project was runner-up for Best Picture.
