Netflix has released a new trailer and poster for the second season of House of Cards, their critically-acclaimed political drama about greed, corruption, sex and the pursuit of power in The Capitol. Since its debut, much has been discussed about its on-demand format and its style of storytelling. The series has captivated audiences, whom are given the power to binge-watch the entire series if they so choose. Producer and star Kevin Spacey has publicly discussed the unprecedented creative freedom Netflix has allowed its story tellers. The results of this freedom are evident…
David Fincher has since won an Emmy for Best Directing. Casting directors Laray Mayfield and Julie Schubert won the Emmy for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series. Director of photography Eigil Bryld won an Emmy for his work on the “House of Cards” episode entitled “Chapter 1.”
Here is Netflix’s synopsis of the second season, which debuts February 14th:
[...] Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers – past and present – to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.
This new trailer showcases plenty of new footage compared to the initial teaser without giving too much away. If anything, it proves that The Underwoods are a pair of spiders tantalizing their prey to a dangerous web of lies, deceit and strategy. They may be the scariest power couple written since the Shakespeare created The MacBeths.
