“Your body is not who you are.  You shed it like a snake sheds it’s skin. You transfer the human consciousness between bodies to live eternal live.”

Netflix has unveiled its first full-length trailer for the upcoming series Altered Carbon and it is intense!  Taking place over 300 years in the future, the trailer depicts a high-octane, sci-fi thriller set around a murder mystery.

Check out the trailer, synopsis and new poster below:


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 series stars Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy, Martha Higareda, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee and Dichen Lachman. Altered Carbon will be available for streaming on Netflix starting February 2, 2018.
