After making its debut at Cinemacon, the new trailer for Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, A Star is Born, featuring Lady Gaga has arrived for the general public.
The film, which Cooper also wrote and performs as a singer, is the third remake of the 1937 romantic drama in which a young actress Janet Gaynor arrives in Hollywood with hopes of stardom. A chance encounter places her under the wing of older actor Norman Maine. Adopting the stage name Vicki Lester, she co-stars with Norman in a major motion picture, but his success is clearly fading even as her career begins. After the couple wed, Vicki’s fame continues to grow, but Norman descends into alcoholism, and she must decide between pursuing her dream and caring for him. This new version has updated the context but the story remains the same.
Lady Gaga also makes her acting debut in the film, in which she also composed new songs for the film, and also performs.
The film is produced by Billy Gerber and Jon Peters; together with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips, under their Joint Effort Productions banner. Basil Iwanyk is serving as executive producer.
