The latest teaser trailer for Marvel’s Jessica Jones is perhaps one of the best trailers I have seen–for anything–in a long while.
And while some might think that that’s hyperbole, take a look at it, and you’ll see what i mean. So much information about Jones is given in a very short span of time, which is impressive. You can tell that she lives in a small apartment, she’s flirting with alcoholism, is a bit of slob, has a problem with rules (no one sets their alarm at 9AM when there’s no pressing need to do so) has superpowers, and parties pretty hard.
All of that just from a camera panning across her room for a few seconds.
I have seen whole television series that have had less character development.
