Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper film trailer out

The first trailer for the remake of A Star Is Born, featuring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, has been released. It is also Cooper’s first feature film as director, as well as Lady Gaga’s first significant film acting role.

This is the fourth version of A Star Is Born: after its original creation in 1937, it was remade with Judy Garland and James Mason in 1954, and with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson in 1976.

Cooper took to the stage at Glastonbury in 2017 (just before a set by Kristofferson) to film live performance scenes for the film.

In the new film, Grammy-winning Gaga will compose and perform new songs.

The singer made her acting debut in FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel, playing the vampire Countess, which landed her a Golden Globe best actress in a limited series/TV movie award.

A Star Is Born is due for release on October 5 in the US and UK.
