Lady Gaga becomes a superstar with help from Bradley Cooper in the trailer for “A Star is Born.”

Jackson Maine (Cooper) is a veteran singer who meets shy singer Ally (Gaga). He works to build her career but as Ally’s success grows Jackson finds himself trapped by his own issues.

The film also stars Sam Elliott, Dave Chappelle and Andrew Dice Clay.

This is the third remake of “A Star is Born.” The original film debuted in 1937 and starred Janet Gaynor and Fredric March. It was remade into the 1954 musical starring Judy Garland and James Mason followed by the 1976 musical starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

While Liza Minnelli typically doesn’t watch film remakes of her mother’s projects out of respect for her mother, she says she is considering watching this one as she is friends with Lady Gaga.

“A Star is Born” hits theaters on Oct. 5.
