Bradley Cooper‘s A Star Is Born (2018) movie trailer stars Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Andrew Silverstein, Dave Chappelle, and Sam Elliott. A Star Is Born‘s plot synopsis: “In this new take on the tragic love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.”
Lady Gaga may be made an even bigger star by this film. I was skeptical of this remake, especially by a first time director, but it looks like Bradley Cooper pulled it off.
Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – celebrated the trailer’s release on Instagram, with an impassioned message: “I can’t wait for people to see this authentic, epic, beautiful love story.”
It’s a dream come true and an honor to be a part of this incredible movie. Bradley Cooper’s ability as a director, actor and musician is astounding. I can’t wait for people to see this authentic, epic, beautiful love story. It’s called “A Star Is Born,” and I’m beyond thrilled for you to meet Jack and Ally. #AStarIsBorn @StarIsBornMovie
A Star Is Born also stars Anthony Ramos, Bonnie Somerville, Andrew Dice Clay, Michael Harney, D.J. ‘Shangela’ Pierce, Willam Belli, Steven Ciceron, Rebecca Field, Rafi Gavron, Andrew Michaels, and Jacob Taylor.
The last take on the material starred Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, with the pair’s musical careers going in opposite directions as their romance takes hold. Before that, there was the much-loved 1954 take, starring Judy Garland and James Mason. The story was originally told on the big screen in 1937, with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.
The new version will see Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga taking on the lead roles.
