Baby Groot kills with cuteness in the first Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer

The first trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is an immediate crowd-pleaser. See, for instance, the reprise of “Hooked On A Feeling,” signaling that the sequel isn’t going to skimp on the classic rock. There’s also some savvy, if deadpan, romantic advice from the irony-lacking Drax (Dave Bautista), and, if you watch all the way to the end, a brief appearance from tiny baby...

Lady Gaga is as great as you’ve heard, even if the rest of A Star Is Born isn’t

There’s one truly great, chills-inducing scene in Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut, the latest Hollywood remake of A Star Is Born (Grade: B). It’s the moment when all the pent-up crowdpleasing catharsis the movie has been withholding under its ramshackle, dive-bar minimalism comes erupting out of it like a geyser of feeling, and I confess to getting the exact shiver of pleasure the movie is...

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have managed to pull in another big-name star for their upcoming version of the much-remade A Star Is Born. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dave Chappelle has signed on to appear in the film, which stars Cooper and Gaga as Hollywood lovers whose careers take rapidly diverging paths.

It’s been a while since Chappelle last dipped into the world of feature films;...

Bradley Cooper once again buttons up his chef’s jacket for this fall’s Burnt. Similar to his role in the short-lived sitcom Kitchen Confidential (where he played an Anthony Bourdain proxy) Cooper is chef Adam Jones, a hot-headed culinary genius whose bad boy antics and tendency to abuse drugs often get in the way of his ability to create delicious dishes. The film, from August: Osage County...

A Star Is Born puts on a cowboy hat and heads to Coachella

Filming on the (new) remake of A Star Is Born will get meta this week as Lady Gaga films in character at Coachella, where she just headlined. However, the film apparently won’t riff on Gaga’s own arty pop-star persona, instead taking on the world of country music. (The argument can be made that Gaga veered in that direction with Joanne, but this is neither the time nor the place.)

A Star Is Born is real: Bradley Cooper sang with Lady Gaga onstage in Las Vegas

Last week, Lady Gaga took a chance to make some headlines by denouncing Mike Pence as the “worst representation of what it means to be a Christian” in the middle of a concert, and last night she decided to do another big thing that everybody’s talking about—almost as if she’s spent her career becoming a master of this sort of thing. As reported by Variety, Gaga brought out her A Star Is Born...

Lightning strikes the premiere of Lady Gaga's A Star is Born—no, seriously

Attendees at this year’s Venice Film Festival were granted front-row seats to witness headline writers the world over being handed a big red bow for their coverage of the premiere of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s new film A Star Is Born, when a giant metaphor struck the building in which it was being held.

Technically it was a bolt of lightning, but still, the point holds. As Variety reports,...

Here’s how you’re damaging your ears—and what you can do to protect them

One of the central storylines of A Star Is Born is Jackson Maine’s (Bradley Cooper) struggle with hearing loss and tinnitus, made worse by the fact that he’s a musician who performs live concerts and exposes himself to loud sounds on a daily basis. While most of us aren’t famous musicians playing shows every night, many of us expose ourselves to loud noises that can cause long-term hearing...

Adam Scott to play familiar character in Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later

Pretty much everybody you knew and loved from the original Wet Hot American Summer and its Netflix prequel were there in the first trailer for Netflix’s sequel series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, but Bradley Cooper’s Ben—Amy Poehler’s theatrical partner and Michael Ian Black’s husband—was strangely absent. Considering how famous Cooper has become since the original movie came...

Bradley Cooper’s DNC appearance incurs the wrath of conservative American Sniper fans

This may come as a shock to some people, but Bradley Cooper—the Oscar-nominated actor from Philadelphia—was never a U.S. Navy SEAL sniper in the Iraq War. The confusion is understandable because he did pretend to be one in front of Clint Eastwood’s cameras in the process of making a biographical film about controversial war hero Chris Kyle. Prior to falling victim to an act of domestic gun...

Astronauts tend to have a long view of things. When you’ve actually taken in the view of the entire planet from outer space, it’s probably a little easier to have a broader perspective. Luckily, the rest of us here on Earth suffer from no such compunctions, meaning no sooner do we have one movie star portray an astronaut to critical and commercial acclaim than we’re bored with it, and ready...

Bradley Cooper and Syfy. The two names go together like two other names that have never been associated with one another, like Adam Sandler and Academy Award.

Lady Gaga once made the classic mistake of being decent at her job when she performed “Shallow” alongside Bradley Cooper at this year’s Oscars. Since then, she’s had to periodically assure the public that their heated duet was the product of artistry and not some brazen love affair. That did little to halt rumors, though, and chatter surrounding a potential pregnancy post-split with ex-fiance...

Blame it on Bourdain. Somewhere along the line, being a chef became the third-manliest profession out there, coming in just behind lumberjack and maybe construction worker. (Male strippers are too concerned with grooming.) Bradley Cooper carries on this bad-boy tradition in the trailer for Burnt, where he plays a chef whose love of haute cuisine drives him not only to flip tables, break...

That means Cooper’s Jackson Maine, the fading musician who nurtures our heroine’s talent, couldn’t simply emerge as a carbon copy of, say, Kris...
