A Star Is Born trailer: Bradley Cooper directs Lady Gaga in a story about fame and fortune
Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand have both taken on the role of an up and coming artist struggling to make it in the big time, with Janet Gaynor first appearing in the 1937 original of A Star Is Born. Now it is the turn of Lady Gaga to prove her acting chops in the lead role of Bradley Cooper's first attempt behind the camera. It's clearly aiming for the award season given the release date and Warner Bros. have just released the first trailer for A Star Is Born which you can watch above right now.
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.
Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle, Andrew Dice Clay and Bonnie Somerville also appear in the supporting cast.
A Star Is Born arrives in UK cinemas on October 5th 2018.
