It’s hard to imagine the remake of A Star Is Born without the gruff voice of Bradley Cooper behind the country rocker Jackson Maine, especially when it comes to the memorable line, “I just wanted to take another look at you.” But early in the development of the movie, the actor, who also directed the film, didn’t have himself in the lead role. Instead, Bradley Cooper had his eyes on a real musician to take the role.

The Motion Picture Association of America does what they can to alert audiences to the content within a movie with their inconsistent and confusing rating system. Not only do movies come with ratings that suggest parental guidance or restrict youngsters from seeing certain movies without a parent or guardian, but the ratings come with more specific information about why the film is given a PG or R rating.
But apparently the rating system in New Zealand wasn’t enough to protect people from being emotionally impacted by the recent release of A Star Is Born. After some audiences have found themselves troubled by a key sequence from the end of the film, the New Zealand ratings board is adding an extra bit of information to warn audiences who might not be prepared for the scene in question. The only problem is it’s quite the spoiler. So don’t read any further if you haven’t seen A Star Is Born. Read More »
