The Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga remake of A Star Is Born has published its first official trailer ahead of what is now scheduled to be an October release. So for all of you Cooper doubters out there — there is video evidence that the man can sing.
The reboot is based on William Wellman's 1937 film, starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. The film was remade in 1954, starring Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. The new film will feature songs both written and performed by Gaga.
Cooper plays Jackson Maine, a country music star on the brink of decline who discovers a talented unknown named Ally (Gaga). The two begin a passionate love affair, which is put under strain as Ally's budding fame begins to eclipse Jackson's.
The cast of A Star Is Born additionally includes Sam Elliott, Bonnie Somerville, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, Greg Grunberg, Michael Harney, Willam Belli, Rafi Gavron, Eddie Griffin, Rebecca Field, Anthony Ramos, D.J. "Shangela" Pierce, and Michael D. Roberts.
