Season 2 Trailer for House of Cards Is Literally Just Robin Wright Smoking

Netflix promo leaves you craving more

The first spot for the Feb. 14 premiere is just Robin Wright, shot in black and white, taking a long, luxurious pull on a cigarette, her back almost entirely to the camera. Wright's character gives scenery-chewing, camera-addressing narrator Kevin Spacey a run for his money in terms of pure, Machiavellian, chess-with-people politicking, and it's appropriate that Netflix has opted for the unexpected with this early spot.
