One is an NSFW clip that introduces the futuristic technology that allows the transfer of consciousness.

With a rumored $7 million-an-episode price tag, Netflix is hoping that its noir cyberpunk "Blade Runner"-like series "Altered Carbon" will entice audiences to binge-watch the unusual sci-fi tale of murder, sex and betrayal".

Kinnaman has recently described the series as being massive, noting how those involved in the production are "really going to be able to create a world that's got a bigger budget than the first three seasons of Game of Thrones".

The series, set 500 years into humanity's future, imagines a world in which people can live indefinitely by transferring their consciousness to a new body, or "sleeve". Brought back to life 250 years after he dies, Kovacs is tasked by Laurens Bancroft, a mysterious and powerful millionaire, to solve Bancroft's own murder.

Who is in the cast of Altered Carbon?

Altered Carbon stars James Purefoy (Rome, Trollhunters), Joel Kinnaman (Suicide Squad, The Killing), and Will Yun Lee (San Andreas). The trailer establishes the mind-bending task set before Joel Kinnaman's Takeshi Kovacs.

What did you think about the new trailer for Altered Carbon?

This high-quality production on this show looks expensive, even for Netflix.

Fans of Blade Runner will notice the similarities in the aesthetic immediately and fans of Black Mirror will be interested in the concept of digitised consciousnesses which is at the very core of the plot.

Now, to make sure we are properly foaming at the mouth come Friday, 2 February, Netflix has given us a seriously kick-ass new two-minute trailer...
