Netflix’s ‘Altered Carbon’ trailer shows a vast cyberpunk world
We’ve been looking forward to Netflix’s take on Blade Runner for a while now. Altered Carbon, based on the novel of the same name, even made an appearance at CES this year. Now there’s a brand-new trailer to get us all excited for the upcoming sci-fi series, full of body horror, murder and (apparently) some funny moments.
In the upcoming television show, a rich man 300 years in the future (played by Rome‘s James Purefoy) needs his own murder solved. So he resurrects and hires Takeshi Kovacs, a soldier killed in action 250 years previously, to investigate. The show looks impressively large, with stunning environments and sets. It’s a serious throwback to the cyberpunk vision of novels like William Gibson’s Neuromancer and, of course, Blade Runner, itself based on a Philip K. Dick novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Altered Carbon is set to debut on Netflix this Februrary 2nd.
