The trailer for "House of Gucci, "which doesn't hit theaters until November 24," hit the internet yesterday. And already its two leads are getting rave reviews. "Adam Driver and Lady Gaga shine as Mr. and Mrs. Gucci in the trailer for 'House of Gucci,' " writes Variety.

"The film, directed by Ridley Scott, details the assassination of Maurizio Gucci (Driver) and the downfall of the Gucci family fashion dynasty. Gaga plays socialite Patrizia Reggiani, Maurizio's ex-wife, who was tried and convicted of orchestrating his murder after he left her for a younger woman. She served 18 years in prison, where she gained the nickname Black Widow, before being released in 2016."

Lady Gaga caps the trailer with the line, "I don't consider myself to be a particularly ethical person. But I am fair," with Blondie's "Heart of Glass" playing on the soundtrack.

Also turning heads is the virtually unrecognizable Jared Leto, who plays Paolo Gucci, the cousin of Driver's character and former design chief of the family-run fashion label. His shiny forehead, greased back hair, and bushy mustache make him look like he walked out of "The Sopranos." Both he and Lady Gaga were featured in a series of posters for the film released in conjunction with the trailer.
