The Frank Underwood uprising

The clip shows scheming politico Francis Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, boarding what looks like a presidential aircraft with his ever-loyal wife Claire (Robin Wright).

Earlier this year Netflix ordered a third season after House of Cards collected nine Emmy nominations, the first ever for an internet-delivered series, and won Wright a best-actress Golden Globe.

Season two of the show found Underwood assuming the vice presidency, having ruthlessly undercut rivals and even murdered someone in a protracted act of revenge after earlier being denied the promised post of secretary of state.

The US show is based on a British mini-series of the same name set in post-Margaret Thatcher Westminster, the heart of political intrigue in London.
