house of cards season 4 trailer

There are a handful of shows that could arrive without any fanfare and still lead to television fans of all kinds struggling to binge every episode before anyone else. Netflix‘s House of Cards is one of those shows and the streaming giant knows it. That’s why the new season arrives in a little over a month and we’ve only seen a few tiny teasers advertising the show – why spend the time, money, and energy to create a massive marketing campaign when countless people are just going to fire up their Netflix account, see that the new season has dropped, and dive in without being asked oh-so-kindly by a dozen trailers?

The latest House of Cards season 4 trailer is very much in line with the previous teasers that have been unleashed online. All they need is a smug Kevin Spacey and a release date.

Everest trailer

Mountain climbing on its own can be quite a dangerous activity, but it gets infinitely worse when you decide to climb the highest mountain on the planet. And that’s made abundantly clear in a new international trailer for Everest.

The mountain-climbing drama takes an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal and hikes them up Mount Everest, which sits at the cruising altitude of a 747 according to the trailer. However, it’s not getting to Everest that proves to be the more dangerous part. It’s getting home.

Everest featurette

This fall brings the terrifying elements of the highest mountain on the planet to the big screen in the mountain climbing drama Everest starring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.

While it would be easy to shoot an entire film like this on a sound stage and use visual effects to complete the scenery, director Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns, Contraband) wanted the cast to experience the elements firsthand by shooting on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest, as well as the Italian Alps. Now an Everest featurette shows what that was like for the stars of the film, and you can watch it below. Read More »
