A Star Is Born Is Returning With New Footage and a New Song
Are you still reeling from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's passionate performance of the Oscar-winning "Shallow" at the 91st Academy Awards? Are you, like many of us, giving it a bit of a side-eye and wondering, "Are... are they bonin'?" Are you still so horned up by the idea of two famous and attractive people, whose job it is to perform and entertain and act, that you will hear none of any reasonable suggestion that Gaga and Cooper are not in fact secret lovers who all but admitted an affair while on stage at a live televised event?
Or maybe, like me, you were devastated when you saw A Star Is Born and thought, "Wait a minute, I remember in the very good trailer a shot in which Cooper's Jackson Maine and Gaga's Ally were hanging out on an empty stage in the day time, writing a song together! Where is that scene? WHERE IS THAT SCENE?"
Well, luckily for you—or, let's be honest, me—that scene is now being included in a special theatrical re-release of A Star Is Born. According to Variety, Warner Bros. is placing the film back into theaters for one week. The bonus? Twelve minutes of additional footage will be included, including a scene in which Cooper and Gaga sing a nice little unreleased song called "Clover"—which you can hear in the the scene below.
The one-week engagement begins on Friday, and will include additional musical moments, according to Variety:
The “special encore engagement,” which will begin Friday, will include never-before-seen footage and extended performances of the opener “Black Eyes”; “Alibi”; and Lady Gaga’s Ally in her impromptu a cappella performance of “Shallow.”
The additional footage will also include footage of Ally singing “Is That Alright?” to Jackson Maine in the wedding sequence; Jack in his studio singing “Too Far Gone”; and Jack and Ally writing a new song together, entitled “Clover.”
And you thought A Star Is Born fever would end after Oscars, didn't you?
