Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga Turn Out New 'A Star is Born'

Trailer week continues, as this highly anticipated fourth version of A Star is Born is done for a new generation, more than forty years after the last one with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson (before that was 1937's Janet Gaynor/Fredric March version, followed by 1954's Judy Garland/James Mason one, in case you want to be a completist). Cooper is making his directorial debut with this and perhaps unsurprisingly, it looks a lot like the Bradley Cooper Show. He's a good actor and look guys, he sings! Gaga is a little more sidelined in this trailer, with her lack of acting experience showing a tad in some of those early scenes, but we know she'll at least get some big performance numbers. Funnily enough, it'll probably be the first version of this story where the "star" in question gets less focus than the guy (you were never going to get away with sidelining Streisand or Garland in their star vehicles), but the movie itself looks pretty good. Looking forward to it!
