Scenes From A Marriage: the full trailer for Jessica Chastain’s highly anticipated new series is here

Posted by for TV

We finally have a full trailer for HBO’s new drama, Scenes From A Marriage, starring Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac. 

As reported on 18 August: The new trailer for HBO’s Scenes From A Marriage has finally arrived, treating us to our first full glimpse into an addictive story of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce.

Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac play a couple whose marriage has seemingly lost its spark. The tension, frustration and desire between the two is palpable throughout, and yet the trailer still hints at tenderness amid the sadness and anger.

“I’m going to go out of my mind if I don’t leave right now,” Chastain’s character declares to her husband, before the camera changes to show a moment of passion between the two.

“It’s never going to be like the first time,” Isaac’s character admits to his wife in the closing shots. The show’s strapline “a story about love that’s over time” certainly feels fitting, then.

One thing is clear: we’re going to be hooked by how this tumultuous relationship plays out on screen. We truly can’t wait to see this love story unfold, with all of its twists and turns.
