Netflix's Altered Carbon — New Teaser Trailer


added: Mon, Dec 11th '17

"Altered Carbon," Netflix's forthcoming sci-fi thriller series based on Richard K. Morgan's 2002 bestseller, has received a new teaser trailer, featuring footage of James Purefoy (of TV's The Following) as Laurens Bancroft, the world's wealthiest man who brings a dead soldier back to life to solve his murder.

Set in a cyberpunk dystopian future, where death is merely an inconvenience as people (with money) can transfer their digitized consciousness into interchangeable human bodies, the series stars "Suicide Squad" actor Joel Kinnaman as the newly resurrected soldier, Takeshi Kovacs (who is also played by Will Yun Lee, presumably in flashback scenes).

Written and created by screenwriter-producer Laeta Kalogridis, whose writing credits include "Shutter Island," "Terminator Genisys," and the upcoming "Alita: Battle Angel," "Altered Carbon" is slated for February 2, 2018 premiere, only on Netflix.

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.
