New ‘House of Cards’ Season 2 Trailer and Poster: Two Kinds of Pain!

Welcome back! Following last week’s cryptic ‘House of Cards‘ season 2 promo featuring Kevin Spacey and his wiley rubber band, Netflix has officially doubled down on promotion of the new episodes preparing to launch on February 14. It’s hunt or be hunted as Frank Underwood takes the office of the Vice President, and we have two kinds of pain for you: both an epic new trailer, and a full poster!

Somewhat less operatic than its predecessor (this time utilizing the familiar ‘House of Cards’ theme music), the second trailer for Netflix’s original political thriller delves more heavily into the conspiracy aspect, as Frank’s various allies begin to put together the bloody road Frank took toward the White House, and how it taints their own lives as well. Meanwhile, in the official poster for the new season, both Frank and Claire (Robin Wright) get equal billing along the tagline “There are two kinds of pain.”

We’ll let the ‘House of Cards’ season 2 logline speak for itself:

In the second season, Francis (Spacey) and Claire (Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara, “American Horror Story”), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s (Michel Gill, “The Good Wife”) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney, “Southland”) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

‘House of Cards’ season 2 will see new parts for Molly Parker (‘Dexter‘), Sam Page (‘Mad Men‘) and Jimmi Simpson (‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘), a series regular promotion for Michael Gill (President Garrett Walker), and the loss of director David Fincher. In Fincher’s absence, Emmy nominee Robin Wright will step behind the camera to helm episodes of the political series, as will ‘Orange Is the New Blackguest director Jodie Foster, Carl Franklin (‘Homeland‘), James Foley (‘Glengarry Glen Ross’) and John David Coles (‘Justified‘).

We’re still waiting for news of a potential third season, but check out the latest ‘House of Cards’ season 2 trailer above, and prepare for the most political Valentine’s Day yet with the brand-new poster below!
