Netflix and Marvel released the first full length trailer for their Jessica Jones series, coming in November. They’ve already released one series of the planned five – Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron First, and The Defenders – and the first season of Daredevil was incredibly well received. I reviewed it here. Well now, the new two and a half minute trailer for Jessica Jones promises to go just as dark and gritty as Daredevil, and it looks absolutely fabulous.
Krysten Ritter stars as Jessica Jones, a woman in Hell’s Kitchen starting business as a private investigator. She’s hiding a few things though….like her superhuman abilities, and a past that, as much as she tries to hide from it, comes back to haunt her. She was used by a man named Kilgrave (David Tennant) who can control people’s minds and make them do anything. And Kilgrave is back for his favorite subject.
The full length trailer was preceded by smaller hints at the story and life of Jessica Jones. They were all between thirty seconds and a minute long. They started off by showing a basic day in the life of Jessica, waking up at three in the afternoon, kicking everyone’s ass in a bar, typical normal days. The last short one was narrated by Kilgrave as Jessica put up a mural of pictures that make his face. That one, the most important of these small trailers, can be seen here. And the new full length one can be seen here.
I cannot wait for November 2oth. I love the Netflix/Marvel pairing that is happening. Netflix is allowing these stories we normally probably wouldn’t get to be told in their proper, dark, true forms. It’s amazing and absolutely perfect.
