House of Gucci parents guide, age rating and UK release date

Get set for the wealth, power, ambition and betrayal of Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci with the UK release date (details below) and everything else you need to know about the film. We’ll cover the latest on the age rating in our parents guide, as well as details on the story, cast and runtime to give you the primo de prima style rundown on the upcoming biographical crime drama.

It tells the story of the Gucci family’s highs and lows spanning three decades towards the end of the 20th Century and there are a lot of big name stars involved in the cast. It looks like it’s being told from the point of view of Patrizia Reggiani, played by Lady gaga (A Star Is Born), who married into the family at the age of 24.

Her husband, Maurizio Gucci, played by Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, The Last Duel), goes on to become the head of the fashion house. The story is based on the book, The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour, and Greed by Sara Gay Forden, so there’s a dark heart to the narrative. The two divorce and following Maurizio’s murder, Reggiani is tried and convicted of orchestrating it.

Cast

In addition to Adam Driver and Lady Gaga, the House of Gucci cast also includes Al Pacino (Once Upon A Time In Hollywood) as Mauritzio’s uncle Aldo Gucci, Jeremy Irons (Justice League) as his dad Rodolfo Gucci, and Salma Hayek as Giuseppina Auriemma, Reggiani’s psychic. Despite the serious nature of the drama, there’s also a lot of witty comedy in the trailer, which spills over into the casting with Jared Leto (Morbius) taking on the role of Rodolfo’s elderly uncle Paulo Gucci.

House of Gucci release date UK

The release date (UK) for House of Gucci has been scheduled for Friday the 26th November 2021 with filming taking place over the last year. It’ll be coming out in the US on the 24th November 2021, so there’s just a couple of days difference. However, with the high profile nature of the story, most people going to see the film will know a fair bit about the plot in advance.

Apart from Disney’s Encanto, there aren’t any other big films due out in the UK on the same weekend, so the film is in a pretty good place to do well at the box office with the quality of the trailer (which you can see at the bottom of the page). However, it will face residual competition from King Richard and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which release a week earlier.

With the November 2021 arrival on the big screen, it should come out on DVD, Blu-ray and digital in the UK around March 2022, which will put it in contention for Easter sales. There’s no word as of yet in terms of when it will be streaming though.

Age rating and parents guide

The official House of Gucci UK age rating has now been confirmed by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) with the release date fast approaching and it’s been given a 15 certification (rated R in the US). You can also take a lot from other crime dramas in recent years like All The Money In The World, which picked up a 15 certificate or Black Mass, which was also given an age rating of 15.

There’s a light-hearted tone to the trailer below, which makes the film seem more approachable from a parents guide point of view, but there’s more to the film than meets the eye. We’re not necessarily expecting as much serious violence as in All The Money In The World or Black Mass, but the story does include a murder, which appears to be depicted. There’s also strong language and sex to consider with the latter being fairly significant and including nudity.
