Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated titles of the coming fall movie season is Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci.” The film, based on Sara Gay Forden’s 2001 book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed,” is a spicy slice of true-crime drama concerning the intersection of murder and high fashion, one that will almost assuredly kick up some controversy in time for the Oscars.
“Gucci” is Scott’s second film to see a release this year (the other being the historical epic “The Last Duel”). While Gaga stans have mostly been thirsting over the justifiably rococo-looking “Gucci” set photos that leaked earlier this year, we now have our latest look at “House of Gucci” via the film’s newest trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“House of Gucci” is inspired by the shocking true story of the family empire behind the Italian fashion house of Gucci. Spanning three decades of love, betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately murder, we see what a name means, what it’s worth, and how far a family will go for control.
As you’d expect, this trailer is full of pomp, flash, and lush, grotesque extravagance, not to mention a coterie of movie stars (not only Lady Gaga, who looks predictably fabulous in the movie’s stunning procession of eye-catching fashion pieces, but also a foppish Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek, and Jared Leto, once again going method and in turn, resembling a rotting, European version of Jeffery Tambor) serving up what looks to be a prestige-friendly form of goofy high camp. Scott’s regular D.P., Dariusz Wolski, who also shot this film, has called “House of Gucci” “funny,” “kitschy,” and “tragic,” and also compared it to “Rashomon” and “The Godfather”… so yeah, say less Dariusz, we’re in!
Watch the first trailer for Scott’s new drama below. “House of Gucci” will be released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Bron on November 24.
