New Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper film A Star is Born takes weekend box office

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s new film, A Star is Born, dominated the weekend box office, achieving more than $6m in earnings.

The romantic drama is both filmed and produced by Cooper and is based on the life of a musician who falls in love with a struggling artist.

Over the weekend it ran across 537 screens. In the US, the film made US$42.908m (AU$60.384m) on its premiere weekend.

First Man, which last week topped the weekend box office, made $1.116m. Starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy, the film is the story of NASA’s mission to land on the moon. It failed to make as much as Venom, which cracked $1.952m across 424 screens.

Since its premiere, the Marvel film has made almost $19m. This week its trailer was found in breach of advertising guidelines by the Advertising Standards Board.

Bad Time at the El Royale added another $600,000 to earnings, while Ladies in Black ran across 321 screens on the weekend, earning $535,787.
