After the release of Chris Moukarbel’s Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, it seems as if there is nothing Lady Gaga can’t do. The nearly two-hour long special presents the star from various angles as a singer, an actress, and a businesswoman, all while showcasing moments of intense pain, overwhelming joy, and genuine vulnerability from her life. Though a different style of film, Five Foot Two serves as an appetizer ahead of Gaga’s upcoming screen work. Indeed, the documentary’s opening scenes celebrate the beginning of her film collaboration with Bradley Cooper, prompting fans to ask: When does A Star Is Born premiere?
Until recently, the Cooper-directed drama was scheduled for a September 2018 premiere, which would have put the film right at the beginning of next year’s unofficial Oscar season; Variety confirms, however, that A Star Is Born is now slated for release on May 18, as part of a “strong counter-programming move” on the part of Warner Bros.
