A few years ago, Clint Eastwood was trying to put together a new remake of A Star is Born (marking the third time the film has been remade) with Bradley Cooper and Beyonce Knowles attached to star. Beyonce ended up having to drop out but Bradley Cooper remained involved and eventually took over as director as well. Now we have the first trailer for the film which casts Lady Gaga in the role of a struggling singer-songwriter and Cooper as the grizzled country musician who brings her into the spotlight. While it would be easy to look at this with a cynical eye, it does feature all original songs that were performed and recorded live so I suppose that gives it a bit of cred. A Star is Born co-stars Sam Elliott, Andrew Dice Clay and Dave Chappelle and it hits theatres on Oct. 5th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
