Over the past couple of months, the world has been following along with the production of Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, the film that tells the true story of Patrizia Reggiani and how she arranged the murder of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci. With Lady Gaga and Adam Driver playing those respective roles, the looks we’ve gotten from the film so far have been quite intriguing. But now Gaga herself has shared the first official House of Gucci image, and indeed, a star is born again.
This morning seems to be a potentially large one for the promotion of director Ridley Scott’s latest film. And nowhere is that more apparent than in releasing this poster, showing Lady Gaga in full regalia as Patrizia Reggiani. Courtesy of her Instagram, you can take a first, studio released look at the Academy Award winner in her latest role:
What’s even more exciting is that House of Gucci might be showing us a lot more than we expected some time today. That assumption comes from how Lady Gaga shared her character poster, along with a simple and unassuming caption: “Stasera.” Translated into English, that means, “this evening”, which could mean that the first trailer for the big awards and festival season darling could be delivered to us all in short order. Looks like everyone’s going to be watching the internet a little closer today.
If you’re an eagle eyed citizen of the internet, you may have already spotted a little more House of Gucci action out in the wild today. As an official Twitter account has also been set up for the film, there’s already looks of not only Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani, but also several other cast members in this absurdly stacked lineup. Both through individual character posters, as well as the official banner for that social media account, you can see Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci, Al Pacino as Aldo Gucci, Jeremy Irons as Rodolfo Gucci, and Jared Leto as Paolo Gucci.
Should we see a trailer for House of Gucci grace the internet today, it’ll be interesting to see when/if further reactions from the real life figures involved arrive. As both Patrizia Reggiani and the Gucci family themselves have voiced displeasure in not being consulted for the production or development of this film, the release of this film is already primed to be a potential hot button issue. Whenever that first glimpse of footage is dropped, it may prove to be even more grist for this particular mill, with the whole world watching and waiting.
For now, all we have are these amazingly styled posters, and the potential for even more looks at House of Gucci on the near horizon. The film opens its doors to the public on November 24, and you can bet there will be more talk about how the reality of the Gucci family saga meshes with the Hollywood version. No matter the result, it's going to be a subject you can count on being carried throughout the film's potential awards season hopes, as well as its general release.
