It’s been more than a month since we first brought you word of Altered Carbon, the upcoming Netflix series that will hopefully scratch the tech noir/cyberpunk/Blade Runner itch that many of us live with constantly. Now, a full length trailer for the series has hit the internet, along with a full plot synopsis:
“In the distant future, human consciousness can be digitized and downloaded into different bodies. Brought back to life after 250 years by Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy) the richest man on Earth, ex-Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman / Will Yun Lee) must solve Bancroft’s attempted murder for the chance to live again in a world he doesn’t recognize.”
Altered Carbon comes to Netflix on February 2nd, which means that like me, you have about three weeks to read the original novel if you don’t want to be a cyberjohnny-come-lately – in fact, it’s probably too late for that already.
