Watch ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ Teaser in All Its Gory Glamour
Arm yourself with a Valentino “Rockstud” stiletto because The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story teaser just arrived.
In anticipation of the anthology’s 2018 release, FX dropped a chilling 20-second clip of the new crime series this week. The video opens on a close-up shot of the elaborate Versace Mansion facade and slowly begins to pan out to show doves cooing on top of Grecian patterned gates. It's idyllic in its Miami glamour...until two gunshots erupt. The doves disperse, and red permeates the screen. Once again, thanks for scaring the living daylights out of us, Ryan Murphy.
The third installment of American Crime Story tells the gruesome tale of famed fashion designer Gianni Versace (played by Édgar Ramírez), who was murdered at his home in 1997. Darren Criss plays Versace's murderer Andrew Cunanan, Penélope Cruz throws on a platinum blonde wig to play Donatella Versace and Ricky Martin she bangs his way onto the small screen as Antonio D’Amico, Gianni’s longtime boyfriend.
Fashion, murder and lots of smoky eye? Count us in.
