House of Gucci opened in theaters last Thanksgiving. Now it’s finally available for home video release on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K UHD. House of Gucci stars Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Jack Huston, Salma Hayek, and Al Pacino. It’s based on the award-winning novel The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden. If you missed out on the film originally, the plot goes like this:
HOUSE OF GUCCI is inspired by the shocking true story of the family behind the Italian fashion empire. When Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga), an outsider from humble beginnings, marries into the Gucci family, her unbridled ambition begins to unravel the family legacy and triggers a reckless spiral of betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately…murder.
For a newer release, the Blu-ray and 4K have a surprising level of extras. Usually, it takes a couple of years for a film to get an extended extras package. Here are the listed extras on the disc.
