The The Assassination of Gianni Versace Trailer is Gory and Glamorous
And it has Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace
It’s finally here: the first official trailer for American Crime Story’s second season, The Assassination of Gianni Versace. Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning series is back with another star-studded cast playing star-studded characters: Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace, Edgar Ramirez as the late, great, Gianni Versace and Ricky Martin as Gianni’s partner, Antonio D’Amico.
And there’s more where that came from: ’90s Miami opulence! Palm trees! Doves flying over a golden casket! Cruz with bleached eyebrows, a blonde wig and a somewhat-convincing Italian accent! Darren Criss, the guy who sang Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” on Glee, as spree killer Andrew Cunanan! (He’s bright-eyed and charming — until he’s covered in blood and torturing his victims.) The show will provide a frightening look into the mind of the infamous serial murderer, who killed four other men before shooting Versace outside his home.
It looks ominous, glamorous and perfect for binge watching. Get a sneak peak at The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, which will premiere on FX January 17, in the trailer below.
