'Altered Carbon' Trailer: Netflix's Sci-fi Series Looks Expensive and Silly

The opening lines of the trailer declare: "Your body is not who you are".

Based on Richard K. Morgan's celebrated cyberpunk novel of the same name, Altered Carbon looks to be one of Netflix's more promising - if not visually stunning - contributions to 2018's already over-stuffed slate of new shows.

A giant corporation has developed the technology to download the human consciousness and place it in storage so it can be transferred to new human bodies over and over again.

The show will be launched globally on February 2, promising viewers an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal set more than 300 years in the future. Takeshi Kovacs (Suicide Squad's Joel Kinnaman) is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order.

The promo, released Thursday, offers an in-depth look at the dystopian future in which Kinnaman's Takeshi Kovacs is reanimated after a 250-year period on ice.

We've been looking forward to Netflix's take on Blade Runner for a while now. The first trailer for Altered Carbon introduced Bancroft, who is alive, but has no memory of how he died. "You shed it like a snake sheds its skin".

Altered Carbon was developed by Laeta Kalogridis and stars Joel Kinnaman as Takeshi Kovacs, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Quellcrist Falconer, James Purefoy as Laurens Bancroft, Kristin Lehman as Miriam Bancroft and Martha Higareda as Kristin Ortega, among others.

Now, to make sure we are properly foaming at the mouth come Friday, 2 February, Netflix has given us a seriously kick-ass new two-minute trailer...
