Gotti trailer: John Travolta is chilling in role of notorious 'Teflon Don'

The first trailer for Gotti reveals John Travolta's dramatic transformation into one of America's most notorious criminal bosses.

Following his high-profile portrayal of Robert Shapiro in OJ Simpson show American Crime Story, the Pulp Fiction star is again stepping into the shoes of a real-life character as Gambino family head John Gotti.

The film follows the gangster during three important decades of his life, as he transitioned from petty hood to orchestrating the murder of Paul Castellano, which sent him on his upward trajectory to become the 'Teflon Don'.

Alongside Travolta, Gotti stars his real-life wife Kelly Preston as on-screen wife Victoria Gotti.

Stacy Keach, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Spencer Lofranco, William DeMeo, Victor Gojcaj and Tyler Jon Olson also star.

Directed by Kevin Connolly, Gotti opens in December.
