This Just In! HOUSE OF GUCCI trailer 2

Ok, I rarely post a movie trailers more than once, but I’ve been quite obsessed with the first trailer of HOUSE OF GUCCI that dropped last July. I think that first trailer shows just how a well-made preview can REALLY make a huge impact. I had forgotten the movie is even coming out this year, but as soon as I saw the trailer, it jumped to my most-anticipated holiday movie!!

I’ve mentioned in the previous trailer post about the plot… but here it is again:

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.

The story is based on a book of the same name by Sara Gay Forden, she has covered the Italian fashion industry from Milan for more than 15 years. Her book centers on the brutal 1995 murder of Maurizio Gucci (Driver), the grandson of the Gucci company founder, by his ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani.

Given my crushing for Adam Driver, I’m obviously giddy that I’ll be seeing him in another new movie this year… What inspired casting to have the Midwestern-raised actor as Italian royalty, after playing a French knight in The Last Duel, no less. Hey, why not? He looks as perfectly natural riding a horse as he is driving a Lamborghini Countach. Adam can play anything, in any accent, he’s just THAT good.

But even from these trailers, it’s clear this is a Lady Gaga film… her presence is magnetic and undeniable even amongst a throng of mostly-male ensemble cast. I’ve loved her performance in A Star Is Born, but she looks like she’s really having a good time here and it shows. Will there be another Best Actress Oscar nomination coming her way? My gut says yes, I think she’d be competing with Kristen Stewart for her portrayal as Lady Diana in SPENCER.

Glad to see Jack Huston in a small supporting role as well, He’s a terrific actor who’s kind of underrated, so I’m always happy to see him pop up every now and again.

This movie arrives just in time for THANKSGIVING on November 24, it’ll be the perfect movie to watch with your whole family (the more dysfunctional the better, ha!) I’m waiting with bated breath for the press screening, I’d even take a half day off if it’s during the day!!

The ensemble cast is amazing! In the supporting roles we’ve got Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, and Salma Hayek. I’m also excited to see Camille Cottin (one of my faves in Call My Agent!), I sure hope this one will be a hit for Ridley Scott, as The Last Duel ends up being a box office dud. For sure this looks like a far more entertaining and fun movie to watch in the more stylish, colorful world of the 80s instead of the morose, titanium-gray Medieval times!

Now, back to Adam… I cannot wait to see him trade those silver armor with luxurious, nicely-cut suits and those fabulous oversized aviator specs. He looks like a million bucks as Maurizio Gucci!!

Whoever cuts these trailers ought to get some awards, I’ve watched the first one countless times and this one is just as great. LOVE the use of another iconic 80s song, this time EurythmicsSweet Dreams (Are Made of This) which perfectly captures the glamor, madness, power and the sweet sound of GUCCI, of course it’s all fun and games until someone decides to ‘take out the trash.’

House of Gucci will be released on November 24.


What do you think of the second trailer?

    1. Yeah me too! I think he will though, as he’s the co-lead with Gaga, so hopefully there are plenty of flashback scenes even if he dies early in the film.

  1. I can’t say I’m excited to see this film as much as you. I’ll probably watch it when it comes out on streaming services. Not sure if this will be a hit either since it’s aiming towards the “older” crowd and many are still not comfortable going out to see films in theaters yet. Out of the two Scott’s films that came out this fall, I thought The Last Duel was going to be a slight success. But of course that one was a major dud.

    1. I think The Last Duel’s subject matter might dissuade viewers from seeing it despite the all-star cast. This one has an all-star cast too and it looks like a thrilling thriller, plus there are tons of Lady Gaga fans, so I really hope it will do well.

  2. Despite my loathing of Jared Leto, I might actually watch this as Lady Gaga just sold it for me and I like the accent. I buy her as a Gucci and I now-a realize-a that…. I don’t-a want to-a fuck with her. Si. Now she’s got-a me talking like an Italiano. Just get a jersey for Team Napoli (greatest Italian football team ever that was home of the legendary Diego Armando Maradona).

    1. Ahah I don’t care for Leto either, that’s why I barely mentioned him. I wish they’d cast an actual Italian actor in that role to balance the non-Italian cast, ahah. But yeah, Lady Gaga looks like she’s born to play this role, she looks SO good here! It made me want to speak with an Italian accent too!

      P.S. Maradona was truly a football global icon!

      1. Indeed. He went from being the guy in Argentina and then play for Real Madrid (the top team in all of football) only to have a lackluster time there and then went to one of the poorest cities in all of Italy and made that football club one of the best. That’s why I love Maradona and yes, he is better than Pele.
