Love them or hate them, every once in a while a posh fashion or perfume designer decides to use Hollywood’s hottest actors to star in an overly cinematic commercial. It’s been done with Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, and this time it’s Evan Rachel Wood. She along with Chris Evans appear in a new ad for the fragrance Gucci Guilty, which is directed by Frank Miller (Sin City, The Spirit). The teaser trailer for the commercial has been released – yes it has a teaser and you can watch below…
This commercial definitely has Frank Miller written all over it. There’s so much Sin City and The Spirit pushed into this that it’s borderline ridiculous. Other than the obvious homages, stylistically it’s beautiful. The contrast of Woods flaming hair against the stark gray background works miracles for the overall theme.
As for Chris Evans, doesn’t he look like Lucas Lee from Scott Pilgrim vs The World in this video? That’s our Captain America right there folks.
The full length commercial will air during the MTV Music Video Awards on September 12th.
What do you think of Miller’s Gucci commercial? What do you think of Evans and Wood as the leads?
