FX has released its first trailer for the second installment in the “American Crime Story” anthology, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.”
The series chronicles the events leading up to and after the July 1997 murder of Versace (Edgar Ramirez) by Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) outside Versace’s Miami home. Cunanan had killed four people before Versace and would eventually take his own life.
Penelope Cruz portrays Versace’s sister Donatella who vows in the trailer, “I will not allow that man, that nobody, to kill my brother twice.”
The trailer also gives a sinister look at Cunanan’s mindset leading up to the murder.
“This world has wasted me, and yet this world also made you, Mr. Versace, into a star,” Cunanan says in a voiceover. “You’re not better than me. We’re the same. The only difference is that you got lucky.”
“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” premieres on Jan. 17 on FX.
