Netflix has unveiled its poster for the upcoming live-action Cowboy Bebop anime adaption, reports The poster teases the adventures of Spike Spiegel and his fellow bounty hunters as they look on, guns in hand, at what looks like a wild west setting with a spaceship adrift in the sky above.

Soundtrack composer Yoko Kanno is also making a return to ensure the transition from anime to real life goes smoothly.
