Watch: House of Cards Season 3 trailer counts the bodies

“You know what takes real courage?”
That’s the sound of House of Cards Season 3 rearing its head for the first full trailer. And if Season 1 and Season 2 were intense, this new trailer wastes no time in making its intentions clear. A relentless montage of dramatic stares, sinister silences and Frank Underwood and Claire Underwood looking like the picture-perfect political power couple.
The trailer arrives hot on the heels of Kevin Spacey’s first ever Golden Globe win for Best Actor in a TV drama – and follows Robin Wright’s equal award from last year’s Globes.
“When the stakes are this high, Frank and Claire Underwood have but one option: fight to stay on top,” reads the only official synopsis of the show released so far.
If that doesn’t sound menacing enough, just check out the name of the song (by A Perfect Circle) accompanying the trailer: Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums.
House of Cards Season 3 arrives on Netflix UK on Friday 27th February.
