ALTERED CARBON Trailer: Netflix's Cyberpunk Show Is Also Its Most Expensive Yet

Altered Carbon based on a 2002 novel is set five hundred years in the future where humans live in a dystopian universe where their personalities can be stored digitally

Based on the 10-seconds of shots we see here, it appears to be a hybrid of Black Mirror and Blade Runner, a combination that should make science-fiction fans quite excited. While Netflix has a number of great series, they are still lacking something in the realm of science fiction.

"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 38-year-old actor stars in the new series based on the book of the same name, set in a future where the human mind can now be digitized and downloaded into a "cortical stack" and placed into new bodies, called sleeves. Laeta Kalogridis serves as executive producer and creator of Altered Carbon.

The series follows a solider named Takeshi Kovacs, played by Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine) and Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad), who is the last survivor of an elite group of interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order.

The epic trailer for Netflix's Altered Carbon was released on Monday, a world set 500 years in the future where humans live in a dystopian universe. His mind was imprisoned, "on ice", for centuries until Laurens Bancroftm (Hap and Leonard's James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again.

Once the show releases, we'll have a full review, but also stay tuned for more information as it releases!

Either way, the new series certainly fits with the Netflix ethos of investing more and more in its original programming as competing streaming services crop up and further splinter rights to existing film and TV.
