After playing the Venice International Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival, the highly anticipated remake of A Star Is Born heads to movie theatres in a wide release October 5.

The film marks the directorial debut of Oscar and Tony nominee Bradley Cooper, who also stars alongside Lady Gaga. The country-rock soundtrack features several original songs, as well as "Over the Rainbow"—a tune made famous by the star of a previous A Star Is Born.


The cast also includes Hamilton alum Anthony Ramos, Andrew Dice Clay, and Sam Elliott.
