Netflix ramps up excitement for Altered Carbon with new trailer

New Altered Carbon Trailer and Key Art Wraps You Up in the Future

Enter Miguel Sapochnik, director of Game of Thrones' best ever episode - "Hardhome" - and enter Richard Morgan's Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel Altered Carbon. He's been commissioned by Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) one of the world's top "Meths" (the show's term for hyper-wealthy people who've lived hundreds of years), to solve his own murder. The series will arrive for Netflix subscribers around the world on February 2; you can find its show page here. Set to premiere on February 2, the series takes place in the future, and its primarily backed by the concept that a human's conscious can be transferred from body-to-body, belittling the human figure to that of a snake skin, something that can be shed at will, but only if one can afford the transplant procedure. The trailer establishes the mind-bending task set before Joel Kinnaman's Takeshi Kovacs.

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.

At least 25 people were injured , 50 or more had to be rescued by helicopters, and an undetermined number of others were missing, authorities said.

Renee Elise Goodman, from The Good Wife, and Dichen Lachman, from US Shameless, also feature alongside Mexican actress Martha Higareda. The first trailer for Altered Carbon introduced Bancroft, who is alive, but has no memory of how he died. The trailer shows a world filled with neon signage lighting up a grim cityscape, multiple glowing-eyed strippers, flying cars weaving around skyscrapers at night, constant rain and even a mad millionaire who would impress the likes of Dr. Eldon Tyrell. Netflix has clearly invested a lot into the series, as they have created an evocative futurist landscape that mimics similar narratives such as Blade Runner.
