'House Of Cards' Season 3 Trailer: Here Comes The Chief

Just when you thought things couldn't get more intense. So many gasping reaction shots. With another Golden Globe under his wing, Kevin Spacey is back to chew up the scenery as murderous politician Frank Underwood in the third season of House of Cards. This season looks like it's going to be brutal. Backed against the wall with even greater challenges and no decent place to eat ribs for breakfast, there's no telling what evil Underwood indulge in. This trailer offers a glimpse at the lives in ruin now that he has stolen the presidency but despite the negative effects, Frank continues to justify his actions. He doesn't see himself as a murderer. He's a survivor. Frank Underwood in survival mode. Sign me up.


Of Course Someone Re-Cut 'House Of Cards' To Be A Sit-Com

It's a laff riot! The melodrama and winking nature of House of Cards makes it the perfect candidate to get the sit-com treatment, much as Breaking Bad and The Wire have received in the past. As usual, most of the sitcominess comes from the title sequence, so here we get an a capella rendering of "a guy named Frank" who does wacky stuff like have bisexual threesomes and push people in front of trains. It's a gas! The theme song has been redone by a band called Talk Fine. Learn about them here. Check out the clip and hope for more song and dance numbers in the future.


Pretend Like Frank Underwood Is Speaking Right To You With This Fourth Wall-Breaking Supercut

You'll feel like you're his confidant! Are you lonely? Yeah, I bet you are. You want Kevin Spacey's political antihero Frank Underwood to face you and say a few words so you feel like you have some company? Yeah, of course you do. Well here you go. Digg (Remember Digg?) has put together a supercut of Space's Frank Underwood turning to the camera to speak frankly about whomever he's screwing over at that point in the show. House of Cards uses these moments mostly to break the gravity of the subject matter, as a Kevin Spacey eyeroll lets you know just how far Frank Underwood can remove himself from his actions and promises. Take a look and enjoy *rolls eyes, walks away*


Netflix Offers A Trailer For Its First Original Series, 'Lilyhammer'

Fans of Silvio Dante from 'The Sopranos', this is for you. That's right, Lilyhammer. Netflix first (and admittedly, lowest profile when compared to House of Cards and Arrested Development) original series follows The Sopranos' Steven Van Zandt as a mobster (!) who enters the witness protection program in Lillehammer, Norway. Of course, we watch him as a fish out of water in both civil matters, and, presumably, watch him fall back into the Scandinavian underworld. The entire series will be released at once starting on February 6, so you can plow through the eight episode first season run with no waiting. Judging from the trailer, getting through the series should take me about eight hours. This show looks pretty damn good, with a Coen-brothers sensibility; a balance of drama, action, and comedy. Yay February!


Jason Statham Kicks, Punches, And Broods In 'Wild Card' Trailer

All that squinting and mumbling has me thinking he's the next Clint Eastwood. Stop us if you've heard this one before: Jason Statham is a rogue tough-guy who gets by hustling and dealing with less-than-savory folks, all while wearing a grim face. That's right! It's most every Jason Statham film since Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. But there's a reason he keeps going back to that well. It works for him. Here in Wild Card, the Statham archetype is dropped in Vegas, hence the clever title. He runs around Sin City offering fun little nuggets like "I take care of things. That's all you need to know," which karate chopping everyone in his path. We're not complaining, because the film looks kind of fun, but it's nothing new, judging from this trailer.


'Wild Card' Trailer: Jason Statham Is Beating Up Bad Guys In Vegas This Time

When evil happens in Vegas, he slays in Vegas. We all know this plot by now. Some misguided thug beats up a woman who knows Jason Statham. He's then forced to maim and kill that thug's anonymous henchmen by a) judo chopping them in the throat, b) throwing them through glass, c) using an everyday object like a bicycle, belt, or luggage handle to beat them up, and d) all of the above simultaneously. All leading up to his headbutting to death their ringleader. There's no problem this man can't solve with a headbutt. However, something about this hackneyed, well-trodden path seems fresh, compelling, and original. Can't quite put my finger on it.


Kate Winslet Is Following Her Vagina's Every Whim Again In 'Labor Day' Trailer

This film reminds me of 'The Iron Giant'. But with pie sex. In Jason Reitman's Labor Day, Kate Winslet once again plays a character who complicates her existence by jumping into bed with the wrong person. This time, it's Josh Brolin's sexy escaped convict who takes she and her son hostage. Before long, Stockholm syndrome and horny mommitis take over leading Winslet to attempt to build a life with the fugitive killer after discovering he can not only satisfy her physical needs, but do so while baking a pie. That's just showing off. Between the time period and the boy having to stay one step ahead of the law in order to protect their house guest, this film reminds me of The Iron Giant. Except for the pie sex.
