Sci-fi stunner Altered Carbon releases full NSFW Netflix trailer

With a script by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Bionic Woman, and unfortunately Avatar and Terminator Genesys), the good far outweighs, and I have faith enough in Netflix, Kinnaman and Sapochnik to put this on my must-see list. This is the first full length trailer Netflix has released for its hotly anticipated show. Find out everything we know about the new show below.

Based on the 2002 sci-fi novel of the same name by British author Richard K. Morgan, "Altered Carbon" tells the story of a gangster turned super soldier named Takeshi Kovacs. In this future, human consciousness can be uploaded into computers and transferred into new bodies, which comes in handy when you need someone to solve your own murder and the best man for the job has been dead for 250 years. Now little more than a vessel, the bodies that carry us around are referred to, rather glibly, as sleeves.


Kovacs didn't come back of his own accord though; he was brought back by bajillionaire Laurens Bancroft, who is also now living in a new sleeve, and wants Kovacs to find who killed his previous body. The man who brought him back, aristocrat Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), has done so in order for Kovacs to solve his own murder - a plot point which has been the denouement of numerous teasing clips that Netflix has released so far.

Who is in the cast?


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...

Again. Enter Suicide Squad's Joel Kinnaman, who if you didn't recently see kicking ass on House of Cards, and the Underwoods all over the place, well, just go kick yourself.


Will Yun Lee (Hawaii Five-O) and Dichen Lachman (Agents of SHIELD) will feature in recurring roles.
