Netflix releases Jessica Jones trailer and poster art

Update: Netflix has released the trailer for Jessica Jones, hot on the heels of the stunning poster art.
“I’m just trying to make a living. Booze costs money,” says Jessica in a two-minute preview of the show that reveals not just how impressively downbeat the tone of the show will be, but how powerful a hold villain Kilgrave (David Tennant) has over her – and everyone else in the world. Colour us impressed.
The original story is below:
Netflix has released the poster art for Marvel’s Jessica Jones – and it’s striking departure from the norm.
While you might expect the artwork for a superhero TV show to be dark and brooding, especially in a post-Christopher Nolan Batman – and, more to the point, Daredevil – world, Marvel’s latest series has a poster that bursts with colour and style.
The latest Netflix original show, which premieres in November, is the second of four live-action series, starting with Marvel’s Daredevil earlier this year and followed by Luke Cage and Iron Fist, all leading up to the teaming of the main characters in Marvel’s The Defenders.
The show, which debuted its first episode to a panel audience at NYCC earlier this month, has already won praise for its treatment of sex and sexuality. It stars Breaking Bad’s Krysten Ritter as the titular Jones, who, after a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective in New York City. Ritter leads a star-studded cast that includes David Tennant as villain Kilgrave and Carrie-Anne Moss, plus Mike Colter as Luke Cage, before his own solo outing next year.
Will it live up to the high standard set by Daredevil? Judging by the artwork released today, it certainly promises to be its own beast.
All 13 episodes of Jessica Jones premiere on Friday 20th November. Here’s a moving version of the artwork – read on for the full poster. Alternatively, head this way to see some stills for the show.
