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.
The movie is directed by Bradley Cooper, who also stars alongside Lady Gaga and wrote the screenplay with Eric Roth and Will Fetters. Also starring is Dave Chappelle, Andrew Dice Clay, Bonnie Somerville, Anthony Ramos, and Sam Elliott.
Continue below for a full synopsis and to watch the official trailer.
Andrew Dice Clay, the comedian and actor from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, best known for his controversial and super politically incorrect stand-up of the ’80s and ’90s, will star in Dice, a six-episode series, set to air on Showtime in 2016.
The show will be fictionalized reality based on Dice Clay’s real life in Vegas, about trying to make a comeback from megastar to has-been to who knows? What we do know is that he keeps trying to claw his way back to where he once was.
Showtime will also air the comedy special Andrew Dice Clay Presents the Blue Show, on April 24th at 11pm, which you can see a trailer for along with some other Dice Clay videos below.
