We've all seen the set photos, but you might still be wondering: When does House of Gucci come out? The highly-anticipated film starring Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, and Al Pacino is currently in the works, but fans are being treated to snippets thanks to production shots, brand-new character posters, and a just-released trailer.

If you loved Halston, Netflix's portrayal of the '70s fashion icon, you have to put House of Gucci on your list, too. But be forewarned: the subject matter is heavy. We'll fill you in on everything you need to know about the inspired-by-a-true-story crime drama. 



When does House of Gucci come out?

House of Gucci will be released in theaters in the US on Wednesday, November 24th, and Friday, November 26th in the UK. 

Those who aren't quite comfortable seeing a movie out just yet can stream the film from home; it'll be available on Paramount+ following its theatrical debut.

The caption for each of the theatrical posters on the House of Gucci Instagram page, released on Thursday, July 29th, read "stasera," which means "this evening" in Italian. And they weren't lying!

The first trailer for House of Gucci dropped Thursday evening. Check out all of the Italian glamour and drama below: 

Is House of Gucci a true story?

The Ridley Scott-directed film is all inspired by true-life events. It'll follow the story of Italian Black Widow Patrizia Reggiani, who was sentenced to 29 years in prison for her involvement in the murder of her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, who was the head of the exclusive Gucci fashion brand.

Who is in the House of Gucci cast?

Lady Gaga has made quite the change from her Oscar-nominated role in A Star Is Born. This time around, she is playing the Black Widow herself, Patrizia Reggiani.

Joining Mother Monster is Adam Driver—who caused quite a stir in July when a Burberry campaign featuring photos of a shirtless, horseback-riding Driver dropped—who will star as Maurizio Gucci, grandson of the brand's founder, Guccio Gucci. 

Fellow Gucci family members will be played by actors Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, and a nearly-unrecognizable Jared Leto, sporting heavy makeup and prosthetics. Salma Hayak will also star as Giuseppina "Pina" Auriemma, a friend of Reggiani's. 

Is House of Gucci based on a book?

Like Halston, which was inspired by the book Simply Halston by Steven Gaines, House of Gucci is a literary project reimagined. The film is based on Sara Gay Forden's 2001 title, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed.

The forthcoming film bears another resemblance to Halston in that the fashion designer's family is less than pleased with the project.

"They are stealing the identity of a family to make a profit, to increase the income of the Hollywood system,” Patrizia Gucci, a second cousin of the late designer told the Associated Press. “Our family has an identity, privacy. We can talk about everything, but there is a borderline that cannot be crossed.”
