New Look At ‘Marco Polo,’ Netflix’s Sexiest Drama Yet

By Nik

Netflix released a teaser for its upcoming historical drama “Marco Polo” last month, and now the first full trailer has arrived.

With naked sword-fighting, lush landscapes and slow-mo neck-snapping (all to the tune of Hozier’s “Arsonist’s Lullabye”) “Marco Polo” looks like one of the sexiest historical dramas we’ve ever seen. Think “Game of Thrones” meets the gorgeous cinematography of “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.” “Marco Polo” premieres on Dec. 12 on Netflix.
