WATCH: Lady Gaga is orchestrating a murder in the first trailer for House of Gucci

Our first look at one of the big Oscar frontrunners arriving this year.

Arriving barely a month after his Matt Damon-starring, filmed-in-Ireland epic The Last Duel, director Ridley Scott has another potential Oscar magnet hitting the big screen, and this one has a (somehow) even more impressive cast.

House of Gucci stars (deep breath) Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jared Leto (who is practically impossible to recognise, that's him in the pic above!), Jeremy Irons, Camille Cottin, Jack Huston and Salma Hayek, and it tells the true story of how Patrizia Reggiani (Gaga), the ex-wife of Maurizio Gucci (Driver), plotted to kill her ex-husband, the grandson of renowned fashion designer Guccio Gucci (Pacino).

Scott has always had an eye for making beautiful, visually jaw dropping movies - Alien, Blade Runner, The Martian, Gladiator, the list goes on and on - but considering this is both (A) set in the world of fashion, and (B) features an incredibly beautiful cast, this might rank way up there on his list of most-gorgeous movies.

Based on the Sara Gay Forden book The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed (what a title), the true-life murder aspect will definitely get viewers hooked, plus Gaga fans will definitely want to check it out to see if she can bag Oscar No.2, following her barn-storming performance in A Star Is Born.

House of Gucci will arrive in Irish cinemas on Friday, 26 November.
