In haaa ah ah ah ah aaah aaah ah ah ah ah aaaaaah-onor of this weekend’s A Star Is Born premiere, FilmStruck currently has the first three versions of A Star Is Born available to stream, plus here’s a little interview with Bradley Cooper (see below) in which he details the cinematic Easter eggs he’s hidden in the 2018 remake as a reference to the previous movies.
