Bradley Cooper's much-anticipated directorial debut "A Star is Born" will open in Philippine cinemas as part of the Cinema One Originals Film Festival this October 12.
It tells the story of Jackson Maine (Bradley), an aging, heavy-drinking singer-songwriter who falls in love with a talented ingénue Ally, played by global popstar Lady Gaga in her first-ever leading role. One soars as the other crashes. Sam Elliot and comedian Dave Chappelle will also appear in the film.
The romantic drama first premiered at the Venice International Film Festival last August and has been enjoying rave reviews from critics since. Variety called it a "transcendent Hollywood movie" that's "indelibly heartfelt and revealing", while Rolling Stones said it is "a skyrocket of soul-stirring music, drama, and heartbreak". It currently sits at a 95% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
A Star is Born" is the third remake of the 1937 original of the same name. The second remake, released in 1976, was a rock musical starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
