The First Trailer For Netflix’s Altered Carbon Is Here and It Looks Epic

The veil has been lifted on Netflix’s new seminal cyberpunk thriller Altered Carbon.

This lavish adaption of Richard K. Morgan’s beloved book series looks like a mix of The Punisher and Blade Runner. It’s also rumored to be the most expensive show the streaming service has ever made.

Set 500 years in the future, the 10-part series takes place in a world where human consciousnesses can be stored digitally—allowing the wealthy to live forever as they re-download themselves into new bodies. The story follows a revolutionary-turned-P.I. named Kovacs, played by both Will Yun Lee (The Wolverine) and Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad), who finds himself uploaded into the “stacks” and downloaded into a new body against his will centuries later to solve the murder of the former body of a billionaire.

Think of it like Blade Runner crossed with a noir gumshoe detective.  Hopefully, this is Joel Kinnaman’s big break.

Altered Carbon begins on Netflix February 2, 2018.
