Salma released a poster for her new film on Monday

"This is going to be AMAZING. I'm predicting OSCARS," one wrote, whilst a second added: "Can't wait for this one!!! Only seeing the trailers and pictures + videos from the backstage I already know that your performance is amazing!"

A third added: "Oh, Pina!! I see trouble! Can't wait for this one!"

Salma will play the character of Patrizia Reggiani's friend and clairvoyant, Giuseppina "Pina" Auriemma, who was sentenced to 25 years in prison for allegedly helping organise the murder of Patrizia's ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, for a fee.

Salma recently took her daughter Valentina to the UK premiere of The Eternals

For her role, the mother-of-one had to gain weight but once filming ended, the star began the process to lose it all again, revealing to InStyle magazine back in June that it was going slower than she initially thought.

"I've lost very little. You go, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa.' You gain it so fast, but it takes so long to lose it," she told the publication.

The trailer was released in August to a mammoth response from fans, especially regarding the appearances of Salma, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, and particularly Lady Gaga, who will lead the cast as Patrizia. This is Salma's fourth movie released this year, following Bliss, the box-office smash Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, and Marvel's Eternals.
