'I Subscribe To Unconventional Punishment': Lady Gaga Is To Die For In Extended 'House of Gucci' Trailer
The film, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver as Patrizia Reggiana and Maurizio Gucci, looks to offer viewers further insight into the crime that rocked the fashion world.
A fresh trailer for the upcoming feature film “House of Gucci” has just been released — and this one is to die for.
The teaser, which dropped on MGM's YouTube account on Thursday, gives even more insight into the film, which depicts the marriage between Patrizia Reggiana and Maurizio Gucci, the former head of the Gucci fashion house. The trailer also depicts his infamous 1995 murder, when he was gunned down in the foyer of his Milan office.
The new trailer appears to show Lady Gaga, who plays Reggiana, talking to a hitman and telling him, “don’t miss.”
“The Gucci family had it all,” MGM stated as the trailer was released. “She wanted more.”
The new clip opens up with Reggiana’s character meeting the Gucci family for the very first time. It also shows how she elbowed her way into the family business.
“Gucci’s not exciting, and everybody knows it,” Gaga tells her husband, played by Adam Driver.
“At least it’s my name, sweetie,” he responds.
Gaga's character points to her wedding ring and asserts, “Our name, sweetie.”
Reggiana was convicted in 1998 for setting up Gucci’s murder and soon was dubbed a “black widow” by the Italian press, as Vogue reported in 2004. She was sentenced to 29 years in prison and served 16 years behind bars. The hitman in the case, Benedetto Ceraulo, was handed a life sentence. Reggiana’s supposed psychic, Giuseppina Auriemma, who made contact with the hitman, was sentenced to 25 years. In the trailer, another woman is seen with Gaga's Reggiana as she visits the apparent hitman and his associate.
Reggiana was a socialite when she married Gucci in 1973, and the pair became a power couple before their 1985 split, when he left for a younger woman, as People reported. Following the breakup, she apparently openly threatened to kill him, The Guardian reported in 2016.
As in the first trailer, this teaser includes a scene of an arm holding a gun, equipped with a silencer, before cutting to Gaga's Reggiana holding a cup of espresso while saying, “I don’t consider myself to be a particularly ethical person, but I am fair.” She goes on to say, “I subscribe to unconventional punishment.”
“House of Gucci” directed by veteran filmmaker Ridley Scott, is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 24. It’s based on the 2001 book “The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed.” Earlier this week, Oxygen featured the book as its Book Club pick for the month.
The film also stars a virtually unrecognizable Jared Leto, along with Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and Al Pacino.
