Netflix has released its first full trailer for House of Cards, and the song choice – A Perfect Circle’s “Counting Bodies Like Sheep To The Rhythm of The War Drums” – could not have been more fitting. “You know what takes real courage? Holding it all together when the stakes are this high,” drawls Frank Underwood at the beginning of the clip. His wife Claire is a lot less romantic about it: “We’re murderers, Francis.” Yes, yes you are.
I, for one, can’t wait to see the ruination of the Underwoods – after two seasons of a slow, steady, and ruthless climb to the top, it’s sure to be one hell of a fall.
Watch the trailer below:
Season 3 of House of Cards will be available on Netflix starting February 27.
