Netflix has released the latest trailer for their very interesting-looking upcoming Netflix original series Altered Carbon, which is coming our way in the first part of 2018. The film stars Joel Kinnaman, Will Yun Lee, and James Purefoy.
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.
The new promo very much focusses upon Purefoy’s character and gives an idea of what to expect from this potential new hit for the streamer. You can check Altered Carbon out on Netflix from February 2nd 2018.
