Lady Gaga is about to make her big screen debut.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper lead the cast in the upcoming film A Star Is Born, which is a remake of the 1976 film starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. In the movie, Gaga portrays an aspiring musician whose career takes off after she meets a washed-up country singer named Jackson Maine (Cooper).

The first trailer sets the film up to be a romantic dramatic focused on how the characters meet and Gaga’s hesitation to perform on stage.

“I don’t sing my own songs. I just don’t feel comfortable,” Gaga tells Cooper. “Almost every single person has told me they like the way I sounded, but they didn’t like the way I look.”

When Cooper responds by saying “I think you’re beautiful,” the trailer depicts the duo falling in love and Cooper ultimately inspiring Gaga to defeat her fears of performing.

A Star is Born also marks Cooper’s directorial debut and features him singing live for the first time on film.

“It all came down to this broken love story, and there’s no better way to express that than through singing because there’s nowhere to hide when you’re singing. Your whole body is electrified,” Cooper told Entertainment Weekly of the film in December. “That was the initial igniter of the passion for me.”

“It’s a dream come true and an honor to be a part of this incredible movie. Bradley Cooper’s ability as a director, actor and musician is astounding. I can’t wait for people to see this authentic, epic, beautiful love story. It’s called A Star Is Born, and I’m beyond thrilled for you to meet Jack and Ally.”
