One of the most ambitious movements in recent years by Netflix was the signing of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, showrunners of the very popular ‘Game of Thrones’, in exchange for a whopping 200 million dollars. It cannot be said that the platform has made much of that investment profitable so far, but that could change drastically thanks to ‘The three-body problem’.
Announced with great fanfare in the summer of 2020, the series has not yet premiered and has already suffered its first setback, as a Chinese television adaptation of the same novel was recently released. It is clear that the differences between the two versions are going to be tremendous and now the time has come to review everything we know about ‘The problem of the three bodies’, Netflix version:
THE 10 BEST SERIES OF THE DECADE (2010-2019)
The Netflix series is based on the homonymous novel by the Chinese writer Liu Cixin, which is the first in a trilogy that tells the story of how signals sent into space by a secret military project reach aliens whose society is on the brink of destruction. This leads to the fact that they travel to Earth, planning their arrival in a rather peculiar way, since they decide to create a curious video game with which to communicate with humans.
The reaction of our planet will be very diverse, with some hoping for the arrival of these superior beings to clean up our world and others willing to fight tooth and nail against the invaders.
It is inevitable to emphasize that behind ‘The problem of the three bodies’ are David Benioff and DB Weiss, the heads of the ‘Game of Thrones’ series, that sometimes there is a risk of forgetting that there is a third person here. forehead. The screenwriter in question who shares credits with Benioff and Weiss is alexander woo, showrunner of the second season of ‘The Terror’. Obviously, the work of all of them will be very marked by the original novel by Liu Cixin.
