Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for A Star Is Born, a remake of the 1937 film of the same name starring Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) and music superstar Lady Gaga in her first leading role.
In this new take on the tragic love story, Cooper plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—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 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 cast of A Star Is Born also includes stand-up comedian Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.
In addition to playing Ally, Gaga, who earned her Oscar nod for the song “Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground, performs original songs in the film, which she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists. All the music is original and was recorded live.
