Synopsis

A film star helps a young singer/actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his career into a downward spiral.

This is the third remake of A Star is Born, which was originally released back in 1937. This latest iteration was in development for several years and at one point was envisioned as a vehicle for director Clint Eastwood and Beyonce. Other big name stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, and Will Smith circled the project before passing. Bradley Cooper joined in 2015, when it was also announced he'd make his directorial debut. Lady Gaga signed on as the female lead in 2016. Principal photography started in April 2017. Cooper has said this version of A Star is Born includes all original music.

A Star is Born premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2018, where it received rave reviews. It emerged as one of the Oscar front runners due to the performances of its leads and Cooper's direction.
