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

Altered Carbon based on a 2002 novel is set five hundred years in the future where humans live in a dystopian universe where their personalities can be stored digitally

The end of the minute-long video provides a better look at the cybernetic future, overrun by sci-fi tropes like neon lights and hardened robots keeping order in a dark, bleak city.

Altered Carbon follows Envoy soldier Takeshi Kovacs (Kinnaman), who is brought back to life centuries later to investigate the attempted murder of Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), the wealthiest man on Earth.

Altered Carbon comes out on February 2 and is based on the cyberpunk novel from Richard K. Morgan that was a beloved piece of literature and now the TV adaptation should introduce this aesthetic to potentially millions of people.

Altered Carbon (the novel) takes place in the 25th century when humanity has spread across the universe, and technology has advanced to the point where personalities can be stored digitally and transferred from body to body.
