“Halloween” will take the number 1 spot at the box office this weekend, with a predicted $70 million.
But “A Star is Born” crossed the $100 million mark Wednesday, after 13 days in release. It’s up to $104 million with no sign of stopping.
On top of that, the soundtrack is still number 1, on Amazon and iTunes. The album has placed 10 different spots on iTunes including “Shallow,” which holds at number 1. Not bad. Even Bradley Cooper has two hit singles!
As for Oscar buzz, I don’t see a way “Star” doesn’t swamp the categories: Best Picture, Actress, Actor, Supporting Actor, Director, Screenplay, and Song, just for starters.
What a good thing Bradley Cooper didn’t lose heart after “Star” almost had a false start and didn’t happen. And Lady Gaga? There aren’t enough good things to say!
