MGM has just released a new trailer and character poster for the movie House of Gucci, a true crime story starring Lady Gaga, with new style, intrigue and deadly ambition. Inspired by the true story of Patrizia Reggiani, the woman who would kill her husband Maurizio to rise to the throne of high fashion in the Gucci family, this new trailer showcases a level of glamor that almost makes audiences forgive the fact that Lady Gaga is cast as a killer.
The trailer, which you can view below, gives us a glimpse of the first meeting between Patrizia Reggiani, played by Lady Gaga and Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver. And this promo also highlights how far a family can go for power and control.
The trailer also includes five new character posters, highlighting not only Lady Gaga and Al Pacino, but also other stars such as Adam Driver, Jeremy Irons, and Jared Leto, as the three crown princes. House of Gucci: Maurizio, Rodolfo, and Paolo. Each poster highlights the stars in monochrome prominence, with Patrizia Gaga draped in red: an unmistakable sign of bloodshed.
House of Gucci directed by Ridley Scott, with a screenplay from Becky Johnston and Roberto Bentivegna, and also stars Salma Hayek and Jack Huston. A film based on the book Sara Gay Forden “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamor, and Greed,” will bring to life the story of the rise of the iconic fashion brand, stardom and inevitable trouble with the company getting involved in a lot of trouble, bickering and greed leading to a power struggle among the key players for the brand.
The founder of the fashion icon Gucci, Maurizio Gucci, who has two daughters with Patrizia Reggiani, left him for another woman and then sold his stake in the company in 1993 for over $170 million but was shot by a hired assassin on the steps of his office in 1995. Patrizia was later tried and convicted of orchestrating the murder of her ex-husband, and despite her children asking the court and the public to re-evaluate her mother’s case, she was sentenced to 29 years before being released early in 2016 after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.
The film is currently slated to hit theaters on November 24, 2021. This release date will put the star-studded film against two other hit films like Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City owned by Sony Pictures, and Disney’s latest animated fantasy film, Encanto.
