TRAILER OF THE WEEK

Look, we talk about movies here. We talk about television. Once in a while those two things coincide as the landscape of television transforms into more traditional cinematic venues. The first season of Daredevil touched on that same ground and the Season 2 trailer looks to follow suit as we are introduced to Jon Bernthal’s Punisher. Pain, bullets, and a whole lot of chains welcome Matt Murdock’s sophomore outing. We can’t wait.
