Brand new trailer for Lady Gaga's upcoming movie House of Gucci just dropped
The high fashion crime drama will also star Adam Driver.
A brand new trailer for Ridley Scott's House of Gucci has arrived, giving us a closer look at Lady Gaga's role as Patrizia Reggiani, ex-wife and convicted murderer of Maurizio Gucci.
The film revolves around the turbulent marriage between Patrizia and Maurizio, played by Adam Driver, and is bound to be full of drama and glamour.
The trailer shows Patrizia become obsessed with the Gucci's “wealth, style, power,” as she asks - “Who wouldn’t kill for that?"
Patrizia, who was dubbed by the Italian press as Black Widow, then makes her way into the family and conspires against her partner.

Killer plot aside, it might actually be worth watching just for the aesthetic - the Gucci stores, the catwalks, the backdrop of the Alps, and of course, Gaga throwing a high fashion look every five minutes.
Other members of the cast include Jared Leto, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Selma Hayek, making for a star-studded and iconic line up.
Unfortunately, the Gucci family aren't happy at all about the retelling of Maurizio's infamous death, with Patrizia Gucci (not Gaga's character but a cousin named after her) saying: "We are truly disappointed. I speak on behalf of the family."
She also added: "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 family's objections haven't stopped Lady Gaga, who is thrilled to be playing the murderous mastermind, although she is dedicated to portraying Patrizia as a "real person".
She told The Wall Street Journal:
"I wanted to make a real person out of Patrizia, not a caricature," she said. "I felt the best way to honor Maurizio and Italians was for my performance to be authentic, from the perspective of a woman. Not an Italian-American woman, but an Italian woman."
House of Gucci hits cinemas in UK and Ireland on 24 November.
