The 2018 remake of A Star Is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will return to movie theaters for a limited, week-long run beginning this Friday, and will feature 12-minutes of footage not shown in the original theatrical version.
According to the announcement shared by Warner Bros. on Wednesday, a special “encore” edition of the film will screen in 1,150 theaters across the country, and will feature extended performances “Black Eyes” and “Alibi”, in addition to the a cappella performance of “Shallow” performed by Lady Gaga’s character (Ally). Fans will also be thrilled to know that some of the new footage will include Gaga and Cooper’s character (Jack) writing a new song together, titled, “Clover”.
Gaga and Cooper seemed to be who everyone in Hollywood was buzzing about following their very romantic duet performance of “Shallow” at the Academy Awards on Sunday night. The hot and heavy televised performance was just the latest edition of positive publicity which the film has received since it arrived in theaters in October of last year. The film, which was also directed by Cooper, was nominated in eight categories for the recent award ceremony, ultimately taking home the Oscar for “Best Original Song” for “Shallow”, which was co-written by Gaga and pop hitmaker Mark Ronson.
