The promotional push for House of Cards Season 2 is very much underway.

Netflix has released the official poster for new episodes, along with the first House of Cards Season 2 trailer, over the past few days.

And now we have our initial look at Kevin Spacey and (Golden Globe winner!) Robin Wright on the upcoming premiere.

The photo doesn't reveal very much at all, but it's always fun (and scary) to se Francis and Claire in action, right? Click to enlarge and then scroll down for the official network synopsis:

House of Cards Season 2 Scene

In the second season, Francis and Claire Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts.

Zoe Barnes, an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes. President Walker’s billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence.

The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers -- past and present -- to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.

House of Cards Season 2 will be released in its entirety on February 14.
