VIDEO: Krysten Ritter Thrills & David Tennant Chills In First Full Length Trailer For Marvel's Jessica Jones
"Kilgrave leaves a trail of broken people behind him"
After a steady drip feed of teaser trailers and promotional images over the past few weeks, the first trailer for Marvel's Jessica Jones has today been released, exactly four weeks before the series premieres on Netflix.
In the 2m 21s preview, Krysten Ritter shows off Jessica's unbelievable powers, but the superpowered private detective reveals some flaws in her armour as the trailer takes a sudden darker twist. The shadow of David Tennant's evil and manipulative villain Kilgrave spreads an eerie chill through Jessica's world as we get a first glimpse of the lengths he is prepared to go to to regain control of her. David Tennant barely appears in the clip but his impact dominates this first look at the new series. Jessica knows Kilgrave is coming for her, but how can she stop a man who can make a roomful of people step off a table and hang themselves simply by telling them to? This man destroyed Jessica's life once before. Can she find the strength to defeat him this time?
Watch the trailer here:
The new thirteen part series is the second of Marvel's planned defenders miniseries and is based on the Alias comics created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos. Krysten Ritter stars as the eponymous Jessica, a former superhero who retired after a devastating tragedy left her shattered and traumatised. Now running her own private detective agency in New York, she's just trying to make enough to cover her rent cheque and bar bill while staying out of trouble. But then a new case brings an unwanted presence back into her life...
The show also stars David Tennant as supervillain Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. Following on from the much acclaimed Marvel series Daredevil, viewers can expect a much darker, gritter drama which pushes the boundaries and covers themes never explored in the Marvel cinematic universe before. Jessica's arrival brings a female anti-hero like no other.
Marvel's Jessica Jones launches exclusively on Netflix on Friday 20th November at 12.01am PST / 8.01am GMT.
