We’ve only been getting hints of what Jessica Jones will be like when it premieres November 20 on Netflix. But now we’ve got a full trailer, and it’s both awesome and really, really dark.
The plot, as we know, centers around Killgrave (David Tennant), a man with mind-control powers who has abused Jessica in the past. We see echoes of him are still in the mind of our heroine (Krysten Ritter), hence the drinking and beating people up in bars; being under the thrall of a mind-controlling psychotic will give you a hell of a case of PTSD.
Needless to say, Killgrave comes back, and most of the trailer is dedicated to the carnage he inflicts. Turns out the guy really loves making people commit suicide and shoot their family members, and only Jessica is equipped to deal with him. Which is both good and bad news, because he’s obsessed with Jessica.
On a side note, watching Krysten Ritter lift the back end of a car is never not going to be funny, and it looks like the show will be at the same level of Daredevil as she throws people through storage containers and smashes up subway cars. November 20 can’t get here soon enough.
