Netflix Releases New Trailer For Upcoming "Altered Carbon" Series

Netflix Releases New Trailer For Upcoming

At the heart of the story is Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman), an elite, interstellar warrior whose consciousness has been awakened for the first time in over 200 years and placed inside the body of a USA soldier.

The latest sci-fi offering from Netflix is a huge futuristic production about murder, love, sex and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Now there's a brand-new trailer to get us all excited for the upcoming sci-fi series, full of body horror, murder and (apparently) some amusing moments. The first teaser for the series dropped in early December, but a new full trailer out today offers hardcore fans of the original book (and audiences recently re-introduced to Blade Runner's gorgeous aesthetics with Blade Runner 2049) something to chew on.

Netflix has debuted a new trailer and four pieces of key art for Altered Carbon, their upcoming 10-episode TV adaptation of Richard Morgan's 2002 cyberpunk novel.

The series, set 500 years into humanity's future, imagines a world in which people can live indefinitely by transferring their consciousness to a new body, or "sleeve".

James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt announce joint show at Fiddler's Green in May
Singer/songwriter James Taylor, one of the voices synonymous with the 1970s, is coming to Western New York. Taylor and his All-Star Band will perform with Raitt and her band, the venue announced Tuesday morning.

Will Yun Lee plays Takeshi Kovacs, who was "the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order".

Who is in the cast of Altered Carbon? Soon he finds himself embroiled in danger as he attempts to solve the mystery behind the alleged murder of a rich man (James Purefoy), who himself hired Kovacs. Netflix has clearly invested a lot into the series, as they have created an evocative futurist landscape that mimics similar narratives such as Blade Runner.

Altered Carbon hits Netflix February 2, 2018.
