Lady Gaga is poised to be a front-runner in next year’s Oscar race with her latest role in Ridley Scott’s much-anticipated new film, “House of Gucci.”

MGM unveiled a new trailer for the true-to-life drama that is set to hit theaters Nov. 24.

Adam Driver plays fashion mogul Maurizio Gucci, while an almost unrecognizable Jared Leto plays his cousin, Paulo.

Lady Gaga – already an Academy Award winner for “A Star is Born” – portrays Maurizio’s ex-wife, the luxurious fur-clad Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of arranging his assassination.

Maurizio was the grandson of the iconic fashion label’s founder, Guccio Gucci.

As Blondie’s anthemic “Heart of Glass” floats in the background, Gaga says in an Italian accent, “It was a name that sounded so sweet... Synonymous with wealth, style, power. But that name was a curse, too.”

The trailer shows the couple’s wedding, the trappings of the fabulous wealth that the House of Gucci accumulated and, ultimately, the family drama.

“Gucci needs new blood. It’s time to take out the trash,” Patrizia tells her husband.

“But they’re my family,” Maurizio protests.

“So am I,” the ambitious bombshell replies.

“You picked a real firecracker,” Leto’s balding, bloated Paulo remarks in another scene – perfecting the dialect in a way that would make any Italian linguist proud.

“She’s a handful,” Maurizio replies.

Title cards flash on screen reading: “Money,” “Family,” “Power,” “Betrayal,” “Sex,” “Loyalty,” “Scandal,” “Ambition” and, ultimately, “Murder.”

After an assassin raises his gun, the clip cuts to Patrizia in a stylish ski outfit, sipping an espresso by the slopes.

“I don’t consider myself an ethical person,” she confesses. “But I am fair.”

In the final scene, the Grammy and Golden Globe-winning superstar makes the sign of the cross, saying “Father, Son, and House of Gucci.”

“House of Gucci” also features a cast of heavy hitters including Salma Hayek, and Oscar winners Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons.
