First JESSICA JONES Full-Length Trailer Released
Alias Investigations is almost open for business.
Netflix has released the first full trailer for Jessica Jones, based on the Marvel Comics character and starring Krysten Ritter. The two and a half minute trailer gives us our first good look at the upcoming 13-episode series, teasing David Tennant as Kilgrave (a.k.a. The Purple Man).
The trailer opens with a voiceover from Jessica as we see the familiar door of Alias Investigations. "A big part of the job is looking for the worst in people," begins Jessica as someone is tossed through the door. "Turns out I excel at that."
We then see the first meeting of Jessica and Luke Cage (Mike Colter). Luke is tending bar somewhere and asks about Jessica being a private investigator. "I'm just trying to make a living, you know," remarks Jessica. "Booze costs money...usually."
Meeting somewhere else later on, Luke asks Jessica about her superpowers. "Can you punch through a wall? Stop a moving car?"
"A slow moving car," replies Jessica.
"The way I see it," Luke continues, "being a hero just puts a target on your back."
"Yeah, I've been there, done that."
The song "Thousand Eyes" from Of Monsters and Men begins to play as Jessica talks to Luke in a voiceover about Kilgrave. "What if there was someone else out there? But his ability was to make people do whatever he wanted."
"You mean like mind control?" asks Luke.
"You have no idea what I've done...what he made me do."
Jessica's best friend Trish "Patsy" Walker (Rachael Taylor) tries to reassure her about Kilgrave, saying he isn't here now. "Yeah, well, he's always here," Jessica counters, pointing to her head before leaving.
We see Kilgrave mentally commanding a man to let him into his apartment, apparently to prey upon the man's young daughter.
Erin Moriarty appears next as Hope, sharing her experiences of being controlled by Kilgrave with Jessica. "Kilgrave leaves a trail of broken people behind him," Jessica says in a voiceover.
"He made me jump," says Hope, "for hours, as high as I could. He said I was never as good as you."
"He's back," Jessica then says to Trish. "He's coming for me."
"Let's start...now," says Kilgrave as we see Trish putting a gun up under her chin. We see an entire police station of cops under Kilgrave's control, aiming their weapons at themselves or someone else. "Jessica," says Kilgrave over the phone, "I'm the only one who matches you. We're inevitable."
"God didn't do this," Jessica remarks over a montage of images, "the Devil did. And I'm gonna find him."
Lastly, Jessica enters a room filled with pictures of herself, several blown up to create a large collage image of her face. "Come on, Jessica," Kilgrave continues over the phone, "don't play the hero with me."
