In what could be the best news to kick off the weekend, A Star Is Born is landing on Sky Cinema and NOW TV this month.

To be more precise, it will be arriving on Friday, July 12.

The Oscar-winning musical tells the story of Ally, a struggling artist, who gets discovered by by seasoned but troubled musician Jackson Maine.

Jackson immediately recognises her raw talent and reinvigorates her dreams to make it as a singer, but finds their relationship strained by his downward spiral into alcoholism and co-dependency.

It starred Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper (who also directed the film).

Combined with its songs, including the so-catchy-you-can’t-help-but-sing-along Shallow, and…well, we know what we’ll be watching next weekend.
