The Trailer For Netflix's New Sci-Fi Looks Epic

Altered Carbon Joel Kinnaman Netflix

Kalogridis has been working on Altered Carbon for a while, first optioning the rights to the novel about 15 years ago with plans to make it a movie. It's paid off in big ways with the successes of Stranger Things, The Crown, Orange is the New Black, among others, but the latest sees Netflix dive headfirst into the sci-fi genre unlike anything we've seen from them before.

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Netflix original series Altered Carbon, based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan.

That changes on February 2, 2018.

Altered Carbon may ultimately flop, but it should absolutely look great.

The premise is certainly straight out of the dystopian handbook: 300 years in the future, consciousness can be digitised, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent.

Altered Carbon launches on Netflix Friday, February 2nd.

He plays Takeshi Kovacs, the last remaining member of an elite squad of soldiers who is killed only to wake up centuries later in the body of a disgraced cop.

Creative staff for Altered Carbon includes writer Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Terminator: Genisys), and Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed the first episode. Earth's wealthiest man, Laurens Bancroft, then hires him for an unusual and honestly pretty freaky task: Figure out who murdered his former body. Besides Kinnaman, the cast includes James Purefoy (The Following), Martha Higareda (Royal Pains, McFarland, USA), Renee Elise Goldsberry (Hamilton), Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine, True Blood), Dichen Lachman (Agents of Shield, Shameless). It's premiering at a time that is separate from numerous streaming provider's other tent-pole series including Orange is the New Black, The Crown, and Stranger Things.
