BRADLEY COOPER-LADY GA GA’S “A STAR IS BORN” REVEALS FIRST TRAILER

Warner Bros. Pictures has just unveiled the highly-awaited official trailer 1 of the romantic drama “A Star is Born.”





Check out the trailer below and watch “A Star is Born” in Philippine cinemas October 10.

 


“A Star is Born” stars four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper,” “American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Ga ga, in her first leading role in a major motion picture.  Cooper helms the drama, marking his directorial debut.

In this new take on the tragic love story, he plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Ga ga).  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 Andrew Dice Clay, with Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.

In addition to playing Ally, Ga ga, 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, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson.  All the music is original and was recorded live.

“A Star is Born” is produced by Bill Gerber, Jon Peters, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips and Lynette Howell Taylor.  Ravi Mehta, Basil Iwanyk, Niija Kuykendall, Sue Kroll, Michael Rapino and Heather Parry serve as executive producers.  The screenplay is by Eric Roth and Bradley Cooper & Will Fetters.

Collaborating with Cooper behind the scenes are Oscar-nominated director of photography Matty Libatique (“Black Swan”), production designer Karen Murphy, three-time Oscar-nominated editor Jay Cassidy (“American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Into the Wild”), and costume designer Erin Benach.

“A Star is Born” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    A STAR IS BORN -- A TIMELESS ROMANCE FOR TODAY'S AUDIENCES

     


    Putting his own stamp on the tale with his contemporary take on “A Star Is Born,” director/writer Bradley Cooper strove to make something that speaks to the timeless nature of human feelings and failings, mixed with today’s diverse world of music.  In the film, a powerful soundtrack of original songs underscores every emotion, and an intimate lens captures each look and every touch.

     

    Producer Bill Gerber states, “Bradley didn’t really base his decisions on what went before him, but on how this version of the movie would work.  What always resonated with me, and with him, is that it is not simply a rags-to-riches story, or a cautionary tale about the perils of fame; it’s a love story, and this is Bradley’s vision mainly born out of conversations he had with Stefani,” Gerber says, using Ga ga’s given name, “about who they are as artists.  It’s by no means autobiographical, but that’s what really paved the way for the story we’re telling.”

     

    Anyone who has ever been in a relationship has experienced the complexity of intermingling lives along with fears, joys, doubts, anger, hopes.  Will Fetters, who worked with Cooper on the script, says that key for him was “understanding what’s beneath the surface for these characters, what motivates them, what are they doing that’s making me feel for them and what exactly am I feeling, and why?  This is about an epic love between two flawed individuals on different trajectories in life who find each other, and I found myself, through them, just wanting to explore the basic human emotions beneath all the glitz and fame.  Why are we fascinated with the famous and what does our fascination feel like for them, what does it do to them?”

     

    “This film pulls back the curtain on what it means to be both a star and a rising star in this business today, and Bradley is not your typical first-time feature director,” observes producer Lynette Howell Taylor, who has worked with Cooper before.  “You’re talking about an actor who’s been in the entertainment industry for years, who’s lived with a level of renown, while also soaking up knowledge from the likes of David O. Russell, Clint Eastwood, Todd Phillips and Derek Cianfrance, and honing his own craft as a producer.  He’s a real collaborator, he learns, he pays attention.  So, by the time he was ready to step into this role, he was more than ready, and it wasn’t at all surprising to me that he’d dive into something that would challenge him and push him, and that would be big and spectacular as well as relevant and current.”

     

    Producer Jon Peters, whose initial experience with “A Star Is Born” was with the preceding version, worked for some time with Gerber to bring the story to modern audiences.  He recalls, “When Bradley got involved and wanted to direct, he took the bull by the horns, so to speak.  Through his perseverance, he put all the pieces together.  Lady Ga ga was a fan of his, and we were fans of her and felt she had the potential to make this a breakthrough movie as an actress.  People throw around the word ‘revelation,’ but I think this just might be one.”

     

    To translate the awesome nature of what it’s like to be among the world’s most popular musical artists performing in arenas around the world before tens of thousands of fans, the filmmakers shot in such iconic locations as Los Angeles’s Greek Theater, The Forum and The Shrine Auditorium, and on the stages of the Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals, as well as “Saturday Night Live.”  Cooper turned to celebrated cinematographer Matthew Libatique to capture both the intimacy and the spectacle of Jack and Ally’s world, and production designer Karen Murphy and costume designer Erin Benach to bring it to life.

     

    Cooper surrounded himself with an equally impressive ensemble cast.  In addition to Ga ga, he tapped the likes of Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle and Andrew Dice Clay to play roles critical to understanding who Jack and Ally are and where they’ve come from, along with Anthony Ramos as a friend who’s got Ally’s back, and Rafi Gavron as a manager who steers her toward her future.

     

    “Once everything came together—we got the cast, the music, the script was in shape—everybody was invested in a way that felt like it was more than a job,” Cooper states.  “They trusted me, which made directing just the greatest experience ever, and made it possible to create the film we set out to make.”

     

    In Philippine cinemas October 10, A Star is Born is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    WITH “A STAR IS BORN,” LADY GA GA SHINES IN HER FIRST FILM LEAD ROLE

     


    Multiple award-winning, Oscar-nominated music superstar Lady Ga ga stars in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “A Star is Born,” her first leading role in a major motion picture. 

    In the film, Bradley Cooper (who also directs the film) portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Ga ga).  She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

    In addition to playing Ally, Ga ga—who earned an Oscar nod for the song “Til It Happens to You” from the film “The Hunting Ground”—performs original songs in the film with Cooper, which they wrote with a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson.  The music is original and all vocals for the movie were recorded live during filming.

    Ga ga—as experienced a performer as they come—was nervous to take on the role of Ally in her first feature film, but nevertheless thrilled to do so with Cooper at the helm and by her side.  “I had to get past the nerves, but I was so excited,” she relates, “because, in my opinion, when somebody has talent inside them, brewing for years, ready to move into another medium and it finally happens…it’s like a huge explosion, an opus.  He was meant to direct, and I just got lucky enough to be in his first film.”

    Cooper states, “She’d done incredible work as an actress, but to make this huge transition… It felt like we were at the same point individually in our work, and we both needed the same thing from each other, essentially, in order to jump the tracks to this other place.”

    “So much of this film resonates with me still,” says Ga ga, months after the film’s completion.  “I think a lot of people will relate to the themes, and the story will be something profound to them.  And the music really tells this love story—that’s something we all took very seriously and believed in.  We all saw Bradley’s vision and we all wanted, to the very last second, to make it just perfect.”

    Lady Ga ga is a Grammy and Golden Globe winner and Academy Award-nominated, one-of-a kind artist and performer.  She has amassed an outstanding 31 million global album sales and 171 million single sales, making her one of the best-selling musicians of all time.  Gaga is also one of the biggest living forces in social media, with over 60 million likes on Facebook, over 76 million followers on Twitter and over 29 million followers on Instagram.  Her fifth studio album, Joanne, was released in October 2016 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, marking her fourth consecutive #1 album—the first female to do so in the 2010s.

    In 2015, Gaga starred in the fifth installment of the Ryan Murphy FX drama “American Horror Story: Hotel.”  The role earned her a 2016 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV Film.

    Last September, she released her Chris Moukarbel-directed documentary “Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two” via Netflix.  

    In 2012, Gaga launched the Born This Way Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth, embracing differences and inspiring kindness and bravery.  She is also an outspoken activist, philanthropist and supporter of many important issues, including LGBT rights, HIV/AIDS awareness and body image issues.

     

    In Philippine cinemas October 10, A Star is Born is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    A DIRECTOR IS BORN: BRADLEY COOPER SOARS AS HE TAKES THE HELM  


    Four-time Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper makes his directorial debut with Warner Bros. Pictures’ A Star Is Born.  

    In this new take on the iconic love story, Cooper and Lady Ga ga fuse their considerable talents to depict the raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life.  Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive.

    Cooper portrays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally.  She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.

    “I never thought, ‘How do I make it original?’  I just knew I had to make it authentic to tell the story I wanted to tell,” says Cooper who, in addition to directing and co-writing the screenplay, and starring as Jackson Maine, produced the film.  He also co-wrote some of the music, which he performed alongside Lady Ga ga, who co-wrote much of it as well.

    Though she loved his take on the story, Ga ga—as experienced a performer as they come—was nervous to take on the role of Ally in her first feature film, but nevertheless thrilled to do so with Cooper at the helm and by her side.  “I had to get past the nerves, but I was so excited,” she relates, “because, in my opinion, when somebody has talent inside them, brewing for years, ready to move into another medium and it finally happens…it’s like a huge explosion, an opus.  He was meant to direct, and I just got lucky enough to be in his first film.”

    Cooper states, “She’d done incredible work as an actress, but to make this huge transition… It felt like we were at the same point individually in our work, and we both needed the same thing from each other, essentially, in order to jump the tracks to this other place.”

    Still, it’s no easy feat, even for such accomplished individuals.  As seasoned singer/songwriter Jack tells Ally when they first meet, “Talent comes from everywhere, but having something to say and a way to say it so that people listen to it, that’s a whole other bag.  And unless you get out there and you try to do it, you’ll never know.  That’s just the truth.”

    In the film, Maine’s philosophy is intended to encourage the skittish ingenue to step into the spotlight, figuratively and literally.  It could also be Cooper subtly revealing through his character why this story motivated him to finally test his own wings behind the scenes.

    “I’ve always known that I wanted to direct, but I also knew that I needed to have a point of view, to know why I was doing it, otherwise there was no reason to,” he says.  “And I always wanted to tell a love story, because it feels like something everybody can relate to—the love, the loss of it, the high of it.  It’s the thing that makes you feel the most alive.

    “Coupled with that is music—not just music, but singing,” he continues.  In fact, Cooper and Ga ga made a pact early on to record all their performances in the film live—no lip-syncing to a track.  “There’s something about singing that’s so honest…you can’t hide at all.   I thought that those two things could be put together in a way that maybe I’d find my point of view.”

    “One thing I’ve learned is that when you’re creating any kind of art, if you’re in the moment, you trust your instincts but can be flexible, too, you can make something that might shift someone’s way of looking at their world a little bit,” Cooper reflects.  “And when your whole crew goes there with you?  That’s a wonderful feeling.  That everybody trusted my vision was exhilarating and, I think, gave me the confidence to keep at that daunting task every day.

    “This has been a three-year journey and the experience has been amazing, and if I’m lucky enough that anybody allows me to do it again, yeah, I absolutely would,” Cooper continues, adding, “There’s a line in the film that Jack says to Ally, ‘If there’s one reason we’re supposed to be here, it’s to say something so people want to hear it.’  I hope that’s what we’ve done.”

     

    In Philippine cinemas October 10, A Star is Born is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
