How do you know when you've made it in Hollywood? Well, for Bradley Cooper, it involved ticking off a lot of boxes like being Oscar nominated in three consecutive years, headlining a failed reboot of The Crow, and finally, making your directorial debut. Cooper's already got those first two under his belt, so he should complete the trifecta with this fall's remake of A Star is Born.
Cooper's in full-on Eddie Vedder mode, in both look and sound anyway, for this third remake of the classic 1937 film of the same name—remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason, and again in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. For this go-around, Cooper is giving Lady Gaga her first starring role as an aspiring singer who helps an alcoholic music superstar get his mojo back.
The film has been shuffled on the release schedule a number of times, including an original release date of this past May 18, but its new October release date speaks to the company's faith in the film. They're putting it in Oscar territory, so hopefully it lives up to all that hype—spoiler alert, it won't. Or at least it probably won't.
A Star is Born opens in theaters nationwide on October 5.
