altered carbon

Here's the first trailer for Netflix's new tech noir mystery 'Altered Carbon'.

Clocking in at over two minutes, it's pretty epic, as trailers go.

It's set in the distant future, in a world where human consciousness can be digitised and downloaded into different bodies. Brought back to life by the richest man on Earth Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) 250 years after he died, ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman/Will Yun Lee) is tasked with solving Bancroft's attempted murder to win a second chance at life.

It's based on Richard K. Morgan's novel of the same name.

The production values are as impressive as you'd expect for Netflix. The futuristic world bears more than a passing resemblance to 'Blade Runner', all cyberpunk, neon lights and constant night.

It debuts on 2nd February.
