Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star Is Born’ Surpasses ‘The Greatest Showman’

A movie star is born!

Copy + pasting the first sentence from our earlier report below, because weeks later it remains true. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s new film continues to win. 

In its sixth week, A Star Is Born earned another $8 million ($178 million total), giving it a healthy bump to surpass The Greatest Showman ($174 million). 

According to Forbes, Star is now “the third-biggest live-action musical over the last 44 years.”

TABS!

 

UPDATE // NOVEMBER 8:

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s new film continues to win. In just one month, A Star Is Born has officially grossed $151.81 million domestic. That beats the critically acclaimed musical, La La Land, which tops out at $151.1 million in the United States and Canada.

It’s also worth mentioning the soundtrack tops the Billboard 200 for a third consecutive week this week.

We love a multi-talented Queen!

 

UPDATE // OCTOBER 15:

It’s official! Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s soundtrack for A Star Is Born is a commercial success!

The LP debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and the UK’s Albums chart.

In the US, Star sold 231,000 equivalent album units (of that sum, 162,000 were in album sales). 

I’ve been streaming the soundtrack non-stop since it came out. 



If you haven’t heard it yet, you’re missing out. Give the film’s larger than life ballad, “I’ll Never Love Again,” a play first (stream at the bottom of this post). Then bumble over to the Ally pop tracks (“Heal Me,” “Hair Body Face” & “Why Did You Do That?” 

Congrats, Gaga!

 


UPDATE // OCTOBER 9:

Gaga might not have the No. 1 movie this week (suck it, Venom), but she is well one her way to secure the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart with the film’s soundtrack.

According to an update from Hits Daily Double, the A Star Is Born soundtrack is expected to debut at No. 1 with 170-190k sales plus streaming. That’ll best Twenty One Pilots’ new LP, Trench, which is on track to move 165-175k SPS.

Talent wins!

EARLIER // OCTOBER 5:

A movie star is born!

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s new film is estimated to open with $50 million in box office sales worldwide.

That won’t even come close to Marvel’s new flick, Venom (despite Little Monsters’ efforts at sabotaging it) with $160 million-$175 million worldwide, but it’s still an extremely impressive feat for Mother Monster.

Industry experts are already predicting Gaga will win the Oscar for Best Actress next year. Bookmark this story, will ya?

I can’t speak of the film’s flawlessness yet (I’m seeing it this weekend), but I can attest that the soundtrack is truly phenomenal.

If you haven’t listened to it, there’s a streaming/commenting/listening party on Exhale – check that out here.

There are several glimmering highlights I’d like you to pay close attention to, including “Why Did You Do That,” “Heal Me,” and probably the strongest track of the bunch, “I’ll Never Love Again” – the latter is on The Bodyguard level (honorable mention goes to “Hair Body Face”).
