Since March of 2011, Netflix has been slowly dipping its toes into original TV programming, starting off with the underwhelming (“Lilyhammer”) and moving on to the guaranteed triumph (“Arrested Development”). One of the more curious offerings, however, is "House of Cards," David Fincher's exec-produced political series starring Kevin Spacey. Some new images and a few choice quotes have surfaced to shed light on the drama.

So, welcome to the future of television. David Fincher's upcoming "House Of Cards" isn't coming to you on some national network or cable channel, but instead through Netflix, the rental and streaming service that is now headed into original programming. it's only natural that members get a sneak peek first, and the first trailer for the series has dropped over on Netflix Instant.

After a flurry of activity, with four films in five years (having taken the previous fifteen years to make his first five movies) between 2007's "Zodiac" and 2011's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," David Fincher hasn't been in a rush to pick his next movie. There's a number of possibilities in the mix -- among them the 'Dragon Tattoo' sequel "The Girl Who Played With Fire," and the long-gestating "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" -- but none have, publicly at least, made great strides towards production, so we're unlikely to see a new film from the director until the middle of 2014 at the earliest.

It's safe to say that "L.A. Confidential" wasn't greeted with especially high expectations in the run up to its release. James Ellroy's 1990 book, the third of his "L.A. Quartet" (preceded by "The Black Dahlia" and "The Big Nowhere," and completed by "White Jazz") was a favorite among crime fans, but hardly a best seller. Screenwriter Brian Helgeland was known only for "Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master" and a rewrite of actioner "Assassins." Director Curtis Hanson was well-liked, but mostly known for mid-level programmers like "Bad Influence," "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" and "The River Wild." And the cast was led by two virtual unknowns from the Southern Hemisphere, with the most recognizable names in the cast being Kim Basinger, whose career was a little on the outs, comedy actor Danny DeVito and recently Oscar-nominated character actor Kevin Spacey.

While actor Kevin Spacey has been hard at work assembling the new series “House of Cards” with fellow producer David Fincher at Netflix, he’s also finding time to join the ranks of A-Listers like Christian Bale in the recent “The Flowers of War” and Hugh Jackman in “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan,” by starring in a Chinese movie featuring both Mandarin and English languages.

While most Hollywood actors go overseas to get paid big bucks to do TV ads, Kevin Spacey isn't your average actor. He's been working with American Airlines for a while now and just in time for the holiday season, he's done three more spots for the company, that are actually not too bad at all.

Given that it was as significant an event in the world as any in the last century, it's not surprising that Hollywood have finally turned their eye to the 2008 financial apocalypse; even if it's unlikely to bring in the teens, it's inherently dramatic subject matter, and this year has already seen Curtis Hanson's solid "Too Big To Fail," and people like George Clooney potentially eyeing the subject in the near future. Next up is "Margin Call," the starry drama that picked up solid reviews at Sundance this year.

On entering adolescence, and discovering that cinema had more to offer than Roland Emmerich and Jackie Chan, this writer's favorite working actor swiftly became Kevin Spacey. The actor had been working for over a decade, converting his theater cred into supporting roles in the likes of "Working Girl," "Henry & June" and "Consenting Adults," but the middle of the 1990s saw him take pivotal roles in a number of the decade's biggest and best cult successes, becoming a by-word for a certain kind of morally ambivalent figure, even while creeping towards stardom in commercial hits like "Outbreak" and "A Time To Kill."

We have to admit, we're enormously intrigued by "House of Cards." A remake of the popular BBC series from the 1990s, itself based on a series of books by political insider Michael Dobbs, it marks the reunion of David Fincher, one of the biggest directors around, and Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, for the first time since "Se7en," and on a TV series, no less. More importantly, it has the potential to be a real game-changer, being the first original series commissioned by streaming giants Netflix, who will air the show exclusively, having committed $100 million to the show, and scheduling it for an unprecedented 26-episode, two season run straight off the bat.
