  • Netflix's Altered Carbon trailer paints a grotesque, violent dystopian future

The streaming site has unveiled the first look at its upcoming show Altered Carbon, and honestly, it looks pretty damn terrifying.

The show is produced by Skydance Television with Laeta Kalogridis (Birds of Prey) writing along with David H. Goodman, Steve Blackman and Brian Nelson. Death is merely an inconvenience in the new sci-fi noir series Altered Carbon.

Netflix have released the first trailer for the 10-episode series, which is based on Richard K. Morgan's acclaimed 2002 cyberpunk novel.

Kovacs was trained by Quell, the leader of the Envoys, who were elite interstellar warriors training in the ways of intuition, combat and survival.

In this new, futuristic world, death is no longer permanent, which leads revived soldier Takeshi Kovacs with the task of solving the murder of Laurens Bancroft, who is the man responsible for bringing him back to life.

What's interesting here is just how much Altered Carbon seems to resemble Blade Runner 2049.

Those totals give him 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns, both second-most in the nation, with just five interceptions on the year. Milton is second nationally in passing efficiency and is the spitfire-engine of the country's highest-scoring offense.

The firs trailer for Altered Carbon is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Altered Carbon stars Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Kristin Lehman, Martha Higareda, Dichen Lachman, Leonardo Nam, Chris Conner, Ato Essandoh, Trieu Tran and Will Yun Lee.

Police deemed it a suicide, however Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and enlists Kovacs to find out the truth.

I typically don't watch a lot of sci-fi shows or movies, with a few exceptions, but Altered Carbon looks like I'll have to add it to my watch list as soon as it comes to Netflix on February 2.

Conversely, series like Westworld seem to indicate that they're more than happy to see what the genre has to offer at home. Her wish was finally fulfilled by Netflix which took a chance with this show, which looks grander than any other sci-fi show aired so far.
