In this new take on the tragic love story, he plays seasoned musician Jackson Maine, who discovers—and falls in love with—struggling artist Ally (Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer… until Jack coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jack fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons. 

The cast of “A Star is Born” also includes Andrew Dice Clay, with Dave Chappelle and Sam Elliott.

In addition to playing Ally, Gaga, who earned her Oscar nod for the song “Til It Happens to You” from “The Hunting Ground,” performs original songs in the film, which she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All the music is original and was recorded live.

Collaborating with Cooper behind the scenes are Oscar-nominated director of photography Matty Libatique (“Black Swan”), production designer Karen Murphy, three-time Oscar-nominated editor Jay Cassidy (“American Hustle,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Into the Wild”), and costume designer Erin Benach.

Movie Reviews

[REVIEW] Crazy–Rich–Fun! “Crazy Rich Asians” (@CrazyRichMovie) is Summer 2018’s Close Out Hit!

It is hard to believe it has been twenty-five years since we have seen a movie with an all-Asian cast. There are so many talented Asian actors that it seems rather absurd. Then, usually when we think of Asian dominated films we think of period pieces like The Joy Luck Club or Memoirs of a Geisha. However, one new movie, based off the best-selling novel, Crazy Rich Asians, is making waves with critics everywhere and we are here for it!

Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding & Constance Wu as "Eleanor Young," "Nick Young" and "Rachel Chu" in "Crazy Rich Asians"

Crazy Rich Asians centers on Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) a gifted economics professor at New York University who unbeknownst to her lands millionaire playboy, Nick Young (Henry Golding), as her boyfriend. Rachel soon learns of what it means to be in Henry’s world when she travels to Singapore with him to attend his best friend’s wedding and meet his family. She soon learns the intricacies, relationships, forged by Nick’s family are not only steeped in tradition, but at times hostile; especially when it comes to his mother Eleanor Young (Michelle Yeoh) of her.

This film truly had something for everyone. We love the romance, drama, comedy, and sense of family we got from it. The cast was stellar and we were introduced to some pretty amazing actors. Constance and Henry have natural, believable chemistry as Rachel and Nick. We are not sure if they are dating in real life, but we would love it if they were.

Jemma Chan as "Astrid Leong" in "Crazy Rich Asians" movie

Our two other favorite characters are none other than “Astrid Leong” and “Goh Peik Lin” played by Jemma Chan and Awkwafina, respectively. Jemma is BEAUTIFUL! As Astrid she is classic, regal, and well put together–the epitome of poise. Her character’s development is nothing short of moving. Meanwhile Awkwafina’s character can definitely be described as an “Asian Tiffany Haddish, (Girls Trip style)!”

This movie is definitely one to support. As minorities representation and inclusion are very important. We definitely recognized this with Marvel’s Black Panther earlier this year and now it is time to show our Asian brothers and sisters the same love. We did it and they will too!

We are definitely going to see Crazy Rich Asians again and this time we are bringing ALL our friends. Singapore trip, anyone? Catch this movie in theaters everywhere, Wednesday, August 15th!

[TRAILER] ICYMI! Warner Bros. Releases New “Shazam” (@ShazamMovie) Trailer!

We all have it rough in this world, but orphans possibly have it worst of all. Foster care, new placements, a failing social system, and not feeling like you belong anywhere can really take a toll on you. Then one day you find yourself on a strange rock talking to an all-powerful wizard (Ron Cephus Jones), who, when you utter his name, “SHAZAM” (acronym of six “immortal elders”: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury) grants you the powers and skills of various kings, gods, and demigods to defend the world! Enter the world of Billy Batson, aka “Earth’s Mightiest Mortal” and the superhero, Shazam!

Warner Bros. is cranking out these trailer for its film and television series left and right at Comic-Con this year and it looks like it’s Shazam’s turn. You can see the full trainer above!

Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer in Shazam

Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer in Shazam! (2019)

From what we can tell from the trailer this will very much be an origin story and a coming of age tale, as Billy Batson (Asher Angel) juggles having to learn how to be a superhero with godlike powers while being an adolescent boy. Accompanying him is Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer), his foster brother, who in a sense is training him and helping him realize just how amazing he is. For those of you who are familiar with the Shazam (Zachary Levi) mythos, then you know what Freddy is destined to become his sidekick, Captain Marvel, Jr./CM3, with all of Shazam’s powers, but weakened if they are both using their super powered forms at the same time.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as “Black Adam”

We really wish the trailer had finally given us a glimpse of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as “Black Adam,” the film’s villain. Black Adam is recurring foe of Shazam’s and the first human to have gained those same powers thousands of years ago, just drawing them from a different set of gods, warriors, and demigods (the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Heru (Horus), the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti (Thoth), the power of Aton, and the courage of Mehen).

Shazam will also be facing Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong), another archenemy who similar to Lex Luthor is an evil genius! You all just be sure to catch Shazam in theaters everywhere April 15, 2019! Happy viewing!
