(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING
The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz.
The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version).
A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance.
One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years."
"The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody."
Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein."
Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story."
A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

She has incredible voice, but a mediocre actress. I wouldn’t go see it only because NO ONE could ever do it better or even equal to Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson....they had chemistry, what a beautiful love story! Sean Penn very talented, but damn his face is hard to look at, looks like he just woke up after 20years in a very very deep sleep! Perfect reason to never smoke or drink.
i didnt like the 1937 version much. Didnt like the 54 version with judy garland and detested the 76 version with barbra streisand but when i heard that another version was being done i thought that thing again for a 4th time no way am i going to see that.I had to watch the previous versions cause of a girlfriend of mine who loved the story.I just watched the trailer cause of all the hype and this one looks great.I have a feeling im going to eat my hat over this one.I think ill go and see this one.
I always thought this grumpy man to be the sweetest man around. Strong personality, strong feelings, not easy to deal with as it happens with men and women of inner emotional value. Maybe i m only childishly in love with him since ever. Aha.
"It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie for anybody."
What a great line and a fabulous compliment to Bradley.
Someone below wrote that "Sean is no ass-kisser". No question.
Having known him for over 30 years I can tell you he is very sincere and throws public compliments around like man-hole covers. I had no plans to see it before. Sean just sold two tickets to this film to my wife and I for Brad.
Wow, thanks for posting this! I usually read & see such negative material surrounding Penn that I forget what a gifted and dedicated artist he is. Can't believe the obnoxiously rude photographer at the end of the video screaming at Bradley Cooper's wife to "GET OUTTA THE PHOTO"! Makes me understand why Penn punched out so many of them during the early stages of his career! What a vile, disgusting excuse for a human being. Or maybe it's Cooper's Assistant'; regardless, no way to speak to anyone trying to do their job. Yuck.
Let me guess. Another “masterpiece” ? Gaga is not an actress, she can mimic acting but that’s it. Essentially she is an entertainer - a very famous one at that. I like Bradley, and I think he is a fine actor, so please folks don’t get me wrong. Problem is all the hype now days with every single movie that comes out. It’s ridiculous.
Have you seen the movie yet? no.. didn't think so.. this comment was from June.. so why don't you at least wait until you see it before you say someone isn't an actress.. I'm sure you could be an actress too if you left your mother's basement..LOL
lady G has a lovely back, she's immensely talented and a bit of a half wit pretentious moron often . Her lip injections look horrible , she looks weird and fake sadly in her face. Penn ? He's a pretentious fake who's PAID to say these things and promote bullshit to the idiot masses which you are probably one of. You'll believe anything a famous actor or singer tells you
Doesn't even sound or behave like Penn...that hair is bonkers, nose is way bigger on the end, his eyes move like DeNiro and voice seems like Hoffman. We sure 100% that this is really Penn? Very strange
Yes. Have you not seen many Sean Penn interviews?
It also may have been part of a long day, of promotional interviews for a project he's doing.
Sometimes, he just comes off as being zoned out. In the eighties he was mean as hell to media folks.
MadDog 1980 It won't bomb. Bradley Cooper is really popular, most of his films do really well. Gaga has her haters, but most have realised she's an incredible talent. I think she'll go from Oscar performer to Best Song nominee to Best Actress nominee for this film.
+Scott Davidson when there are truly talented singers dancers and musicians out there who arent allowed to "make it" as they wont sell their soul to the devil and create complete corporate shite for the sheeple.
Lil Jay — Apparently you haven’t listened to him much. That awards ceremony where he indignantly grabbed the mike and declared Jude Law a genius (a comic had made a joke about Jude Law being a pretty boy) was embarrassing to watch. He is so good at being outraged, but I wonder if he has any other talent. Maybe he just “feels” more strongly than the rest of us, the sane.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
