The less than two minute trailer shows how Versace came to meet his killer, Andrew Cunanan, played by Darren Criss, before his death in 1997. In the scenes that follow, Ricky Martin, who plays Gianni’s longtime partner, Antonio D’Amico, is seen crying after his lover’s murder as he talks to the designer's sister Donatella Versace, played by Penélope, who delivers the powerful line, “I will not allow that man, that nobody, to kill my brother twice.”
