Continue below for a full synopsis and to watch the official trailer.
â€œA Star is Bornâ€ stars four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (â€œAmerican Sniper,â€ â€œAmerican Hustle,â€ â€œSilver Linings Playbookâ€) and multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Gaga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture. Cooper helms the drama, marking his directorial debut.
In this new take on the tragic love story, he plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discoversâ€”and falls in love withâ€”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 Allyâ€™s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
The cast of â€œA Star is Bornâ€ also includes Andrew Dice Clay, with Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.
In addition to playing Ally, Gaga, who earned her Oscar nod for the song â€œTil It Happens to Youâ€ from â€œThe Hunting Ground,â€ performs original songs in the film, which 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.
â€œA Star is Bornâ€ is produced by Bill Gerber, Jon Peters, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Lynette Howell Taylor. Ravi Mehta, Basil Iwanyk, Niija Kuykendall, Sue Kroll, Michael Rapino and Heather Parry serve as executive producers. The screenplay is by Eric Roth and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters.
Collaborating with Cooper behind the scenes are Oscar-nominated director of photography Matthew Libatique (â€œBlack Swanâ€), production designer Karen Murphy, three-time Oscar-nominated editor Jay Cassidy (â€œAmerican Hustle,â€ â€œSilver Linings Playbook,â€ â€œInto the Wildâ€), and costume designer Erin Benach.
This is the newest cinematic take on the story of an established star who discovers and falls in love with a talented up-and-comer. Previous versions include the 1937 original, in which Fredric March played an old movie star who discovers an aspiring actress played by Janet Gaynor; the 1954 film which added a musical twist, as fading actor James Mason discovers aspiring musician Judy Garland; and finally the 1976 film, which fully shifted things from actors to musicians as famous singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson discovers aspiring musician Barbra Streisand.
A Star is Born is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 5th.
