A Star Is Born 2018 looks like a tedious vanity project for Bradley Cooper, since he stars, directs and co-writes his mush, also bagging Lady Gaga into the foray, as he tears apart Barbra Streisand’s 1976 movie in which she starred opposite Kris Kristofferson (so good, they named him twice).
Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Cooper) discovers-and falls in love with-struggling artist Ally (Lady 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.
A Star Is Born 2018 is released in the UK on October 5th.
Also stars: Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle, Anthony Ramos, Bonnie Somerville, Andrew Dice Clay, Michael Harney
