A Star Is Born is the tragic love story that could be told in a number of different ways. Which is probably why there are different variations since the story was first told in 1937. While the underlying message has been constant, every generation has gotten to see this story be told. But with Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, this version, starring him and Lady Gaga, could be the most profound retelling, yet. The film could have easily fallen into the trap of simply just telling the story of a narcissistic musician falling for a nightclub singer whose talents not only bring out the best in him but also overshadows him when the entertainment world chooses her over him, but it doesn’t.
Here we have something truly special as we hang on every word, note, and lyric that comes out of Cooper and Lady Gaga. At the same time, the film shows how their internal demons can be a dangerous and destructive force. My full review of A Star Is Born is below.
An official trailer for the latest remake of A Star is Born has been released by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Here we are again — staring at one of those unbelievable headlines that simply has to be an April Fool’s joke…only it’s January, and this is apparently very real.
Deadline is reporting that the legendary actor, director, and producer, Clint Eastwood, will be directing his own take on the musical A Star is Born, with Beyonce Knowles set to star in the lead female role. The script for the movie is written by Will Fetters (Remember Me).
This will be the fourth version of the story, which tells the story of an aspiring actress being helped into the industry by an old veteran actor. The first came in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, while the second came in 1954 and starred Judy Garland and James Mason, and the third in 1976, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
All three previous versions of the film were nominated for Academy Awards, with two of the three winning an Oscar.
