The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
In this new take on the tragic love story, Bradley Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally. 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 Ally’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 film is the latest remake of the 1937 film of the same name (The 1954 Judy Garland version and 1976 Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson version) and from this trailer, I’m definitely liking the original song and the fact that all the music is original and recorded live (is that Coachella that Cooper is performing at?) is a plus in the films favour.
A Star Is Born stars Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Sam Elliott, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, Rebecca Field, Michael Marney, Rafi Gavron and Anthony Ramos.
A Star Is Born is scheduled for cinematic release on the 5th October 2018.
