Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga shine in the trailer for ‘A Star Is Born’
The first trailer for Bradley Cooper’s updated take on “A Star Is Born” has just debuted online, and you can check it out in the player above. Not only does the four-time Academy Award nominee direct, but he also headlines opposite Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga.
In this new take on the tragic love story, scripted by Eric Roth and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters, 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 demons.
The cast of “A Star Is Born” also includes Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.
In addition to playing Ally, Gaga performs original songs that she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All the music is original and was recorded live.
Behind the scenes, “A Star Is Born” boasts an Oscar-nominated director of photography in Matthew Libatique (“Black Swan”), production designer Karen Murphy, three-time Oscar-nominated editor Jay Cassidy (“American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Into the Wild”), and costume designer Erin Benach.
