There seemed to have been a few private screenings of Bradley Cooper‘s upcoming remake of  "A Star Is Born" (only due for release in October). Three major celebs are already raving about it, trying to kickstart an Oscar campaign via word of mouth: Barbra Streisand, Sean Penn, and Robert De Niro.
Streisand: “Oh, I can’t say too much…I haven’t seen too much, but it’s good…it’s very, very good.” 

Penn: “One of the most beautiful, fantastic, it’s the best, and most importantly commercial film I have seen in so many years” 

De Niro: “It’s terrific and Bradley is excellent in it…the movie is wonderful…I hope it gets the attention I feel it should when it opens…Bradley learned to sing…he really worked hard and it paid off…you see all the hard work he did, it’s special.”
What is really going on here? Do we have the second coming of Bob Fosse being released this October? Or is this just friends helping a friend? Well, we finally have a trailer.

This looks by-the-books but well shot, directed, and especially, acted. It really helps when you have a real musician star in a musical. Lady Gaga at the Oscars is a very real question, folks.

The official synopsis reads "A movie star helps a young singer and actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral." Cooper writes, directs and stars. The film also includes Lady Gaga, Sam Elliot, and Dave Chappelle.
