Is it just me, or does it seem like we’ve been talking about the latest remake of A Star is Born for ages? Well the wait is almost over. Bradley, who wrote and directed the musical drama, shared the trailer during the Warner Bros. panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The 42-year-old actor used the eventto generate hype for the eagerly-awaited project, set to hit theaters on October 5. The release was moved back from May, as the studio thinks this one might get a little Oscar love.
The story has been told three times before, once in 1937 with Janet Gaynor and Frederic March, in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason and in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. Who better to fill the shoes of legendary divas like Babs and La Garland than Lady Gaga? This film marks her first leading role in a movie, after brief appearances in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Machete Kills. Bradley had nothing but praise for his co-star, telling the crowd that, “She’s kind of a revelation in this movie.” His current sentiments echo what he told Ellen De Generes last year.
