Watch the 1st trailer for House Of Gucci starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver
Ridley Scott’s upcoming film tells the story of how Patrizia Reggiani (played by Gaga) was convicted of orchestrating the murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (Driver). It also features an almost unrecognisable Jared Leto.
Feast your eyes on the first official trailer for Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated crime drama, House Of Gucci, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, and step into the world of ’80s and ’90s high fashion.
Based on the 2001 Sara Gay Forden book, the film follows the real-life saga of the family that turned Gucci into one of the world’s foremost fashion powerhouses. It also tells the story of how Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga) was convicted of orchestrating the murder of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (Driver), the grandson of founder Guccio Gucci.
The trailer dropped on Thursday (Jul 29) and apart from the big coats and big hair, you’ll also get to see an unrecognisable Jared Leto in action as Paolo Gucci.
Fans took to social media to express their disbelief at Leto’s transformation, which was first made evident with the release of the character posters shortly before the trailer. Oscar winner Leto was left unrecognisable with what appears to be prosthetics and heavy makeup.
The drama also features a host of critically acclaimed actors including Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci and Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci. It marks Lady Gaga’s follow-up acting role after her acclaimed turn in A Star Is Born.
Despite the excitement surrounding the film’s release, actual members of the Gucci family have been less than thrilled. “We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family,” Patrizia Gucci told the Associated Press earlier in April.
“They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system… Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything. but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
The film is slated for release in November. It is one of two new Scott films arriving this year, with The Last Duel – written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck – set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.
