A Star Is Born Is Coming Back to Theaters With New Music and 12 Minutes of Additional Footage
We may be far from the shallow now, but we’re closer than we’ve ever been to new footage from Bradley Cooper's Oscar-winning remake of A Star Is Born, starring Cooper and Lady Gaga.
On Sunday, Gaga won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Shallow,” and many fans of the film saw the co-stars' (much buzzed-about) live performance as the end of the road for the film, at least in terms of its theatrical viability. Now, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the hit will be returning to theaters for a limited, one-week run, but with a twist: the version screened will be an extended cut that includes both new music plus 12 minutes of brand-new footage.
The new scenes will include extended versions of “Black Eyes,” “Alibi,” and Lady Gaga’s impromptu parking lot performance of the Oscar- and Grammy-winning hit, “Shallow.” The re-release also includes never-before-seen performances of soundtrack staples “Is That Alright?” and “Too Far Gone.” Also included is a completely new song left off the No. 1 album called “Clover.”
The release is limited to 1150 screens in North America for one week only beginning this Friday. So get your vocals warmed up, and do it quickly! Bring your best Gaga scream to the theater and relive this instant classic while you can.
