Netflix's Altered Carbon — Teaser Trailer


added: Mon, Dec 4th '17

Netflix has unveiled the first trailer for the highly-ambitious science-fiction thriller series "Altered Carbon," based on Richard K. Morgan's bestselling cyberpunk novel, and starring Joel Kinnaman (from TV's "The Killing" and "Suicide Squad") as an elite soldier who is brought back from the dead to investigate a murder after his consciousness is digitized and downloaded into a new body.

Set 300 years in the future, where the super wealthy can basically live forever due to a technological process of transferring someone's digitized consciousness into interchangeable human bodies, the 10-part series also stars James Purefoy (The Following), Dichen Lachman (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Tamara Taylor (Bones), Ato Essandoh (Vinyl), Hiro Kanagawa (The Man in the High Castle), Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Kristin Lehman (The Killing), Renee Elise Goldsberry (The Good Wife), Martha Higareda (Royal Pains), Hayley Law (Riverdale) and Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine).

Screenwriter-producer Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys) written and created and is also serving as an executive producer on the Netflix series, in which acclaimed English director Miguel Sapochnik (whose credits include the 2010 sci-fi movie "Repo Men" and who recently earned an Emmy for directing the epic "Battle of the Bastards" episode on HBO's "Game of Thrones") is helming the forthcoming pilot.

"Altered Carbon," which is rumored to be one of Netflix's most expensive series, will premiere Friday, February 2, 2018.

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.
