“A Star is Born” Has a New Trailer

Steve Porter / June 7, 2018

After years in development and a rotating roster of potential leads, A Star Is Born has dropped a striking new trailer featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

The upcoming film—the latest remake of a tale that Hollywood really loves to tell—is a tragic love story about struggling country star Jackson Maine (Cooper) who discovers, and soon falls in love with, struggling artist Ally (Gaga). The trailer doesn’t tell us much about the main plot, but we can see that Maine is eager to coax Ally out of her shell and get her on stage—teasing one of the film’s big musical numbers, “The Shallow,” a full-throated ballad penned by Mark Ronson.

The movie features a musical cast, including Lady Gaga, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, and Sam Elliot, and is helmed by four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper in his directorial debut. Gaga performs original songs in the film which she wrote with Cooper, Mark Ronson, Lukas Nelson, and Jason Isbell. They even recorded the music on set during production to capture the perfect acoustics and energy for the camera. Just listen to those last few lines in the trailer!

A Star Is Born is in theaters October 5.
