20 Moments In The House Of Cards Trailer That Will Give You A Case Of The WTFs

By  | 

Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood in Game of Thrones still season 3 trailerThis is a big day for House of Cards fans. Not only are we fresh off a Kevin Spacey win for Best Actor at the Golden Globes last night, but we have a season three trailer hot off the presses as well! What an embarrassment of riches!

Last year around this time, the series dropped an IDGAF trailer that was thirty seconds of Claire Underwood (played by Robin Wright) just smoking a cigarette the entire time, because they're badass like that, but this year we get a little more meat to sink our teeth into. No barbecue though, now that Frank is on the outs with Freddy, amirite?? (Just a little inside joke for you fans of the show.)

But even if you aren't a fan yet, this trailer has plenty of WTF moments to go around that will convince you to become one. Twenty of them, to be exact:

  1. That slow look up from Frank in the opening shot! He reminds me of the lions that guard the doors of libraries. (Don't question it.)
  2. Whose grave is he going to in that graveyard??
  3. I'm not particularly connected to any of the scenes that happen here in quick succession, but the voiceover and the ragged drum beat underneath are really doing it for me.
  4. ROBIN WRIGHT I LOVE YOUR WORK WHO DOES YOUR HAIR.
  5. Is that Putin-esque (putanesca!) guy gonna shake President Underwood's hand or what?
  6. What's making Claire so speechless in that panel? I feel like it takes a lot with her, so I'm muy curious.
  7. Is that the former President looming over Frank's desk while he sits at it without even looking up?? Or someone we haven't met yet? Either way, #balls.
  8. Who's in jail??
  9. Wait now that guy is kissing Claire?? In front of all those people? WTF? I guess it wasn't President Walker!
  10. Annnnd we can gauge by Frank's reaction that that kiss was entirely unplanned. Obviously.
  11. Pissed car ride!
  12. Illicit phone call!
  13. Contemplative Claire in bed!
  14. Oh MANNNNN I am in love with that shot where they both walk into the room together and part in the center to go their separate ways. Eff yes.
  15. Remy Danton what are you up to with your double Windsor??
  16. Ooh, Seth is not looking happy as Frank comes off that stage.
  17. Don't think I've ever seen Claire that shaken up!
  18. Oh no, sad hacker with a guinea pig (can't remember his name) seems to have discovered something big.
  19. Now Claire is crying? WTF?
  20. YOU CAN BE MURDERERS AND SURVIVORS AT THE SAME TIME, BROS.

Man, they really packed it in there! I can't wait until the entirety of season three goes live on February 27th!
