In case you've managed to somehow miss it, A Star Is Born was one of the biggest movies of 2018. Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in her first on-screen performance, it was a smash-hit. The movie spawned some incredible tunes like "Shallow" which scooped the Best Original Song Oscar this past Sunday. So, basically, it's a big deal. If (like us) you couldn't get a babysitter to watch it at theaters the first time around, then we've got some big news for you. You can catch the romance movie in over 1,150 theaters across North America for one week only, starting this Friday. Pick up that phone and get dialing, because you're going to need someone to watch those kids.
According to EW, Warner Bros. made the big announcement earlier today, but it goes way beyond giving people a second opportunity to watch the Bradley Cooper-directed flick on the screen. Theater-goers will be treated to 12 minutes of extra footage which includes extended music numbers "Black Eyes", "Alibi" and "Shallow." Not bad, right? Other add-ins include another Gaga song, "Is That Alright?" and troubled Jackson Maine crooning "Too Far Gone" in a particularly poignant scene.
The announcement comes after the two stars sang a heartfelt duet of the hit song "Shallow" at the Oscars before winning the coveted prize last Sunday. Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the emotional performance, with some saying that the chemistry between Cooper and Gaga was palpable - even though Cooper's girlfriend Irina Shayk sat in the audience. Both of the stars were nominated for Best Actor in their respective categories, but Cooper lost out to Rami Malek. British actress Olivia Coleman won the Best Actress gong for her work on the royal drama The Favorite.
It's hardly surprising that execs are making the most of the movie's success while the topic is still hot. Upon its initial release, A Star Is Born made over $200 million dollars in domestic ticket sales alone.
See you at the popcorn counter. We wouldn't miss it for the world.
