House Of Cards Season 3 Gets Tantalizing New Trailer Ahead Of Friday Premiere

23 February 2015 8:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the course of Netflix’s astute marketing campaign for House of Cards season 3, we’ve been treated with atmospheric vignettes that showcase the brooding Underwoods, a series of motion pictures and a foreboding trailer. Now, with less than a week to go until its premiere, the streaming service has unveiled a new and punchy thirty-second clip that sees Claire and Frank settling into their newfound positions of power — or at the very least, trying to.

As previous footage alluded to, this upcoming season will primarily focus on the couple as they struggle to keep all of the plates spinning against sky-high stakes. No mean feat, of course, given that Kevin Spacey’s Frank isn’t known for making friends in the traditional sense. But now that the tyrannical South Carolinian is the newly-appointed President in Walker’s steed, it will be interesting to see how his arc pans out across the thirteen hour-long episodes. »

The Underwoods Continue To Climb The Ladder In New Motion Poster For House Of Cards Season Three

5 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We are now but a few weeks away from the much-anticipated return of House of Cards for its third season, and Netflix has fired up the marketing campaign with the release of a new motion poster and key artwork.

Showcasing the Underwoods (played once again by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright) disembarking from Air Force One, the promo material perfectly encapsulates the dark, brooding tone of the show’s next stint. With Frank now in full control of the White House as the newly-appointed President of the United States, it seems the only direction for the tyrannical, ruthless South Carolinian to go is down.

With tensions rising from within the West Wing, not to mention between each other, the pair’s rise to power has been fraught with problems both big and small, and it looks to be the case that House of Cards Season Three will only lump more pressure on their once-ironcast relationship. »
