"Outside of English-speaking territories, international box office for the Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga musical drama has underperformed compared to its blockbuster U.S. results."

“German fans were not particularly excited ahead of the film's release,” says Ines Walk, editor-in-chief at Moviepilot, an online portal for German cinemagoers. “And many criticized the film for focusing too much on the male character — Bradley Cooper's drunken country rock star Jackson — instead of the more interesting story of the female singer played by Lady Gaga."

Can I just say that I didn’t like it as much as I should have either? It’s just such an american story. I still loved it for Gaga, but it’s really not that interesting story-wise

I just wanted to be one of The Strokes

Everyone I know in my non-English speaking country and non-fans of romance and drama movies community loved it, so...

I literally read "Why 'A Star Is Born' isn't Oscar worthy" :messga: I was about to set the Billboard offices on fire

PG.

Well they opted to feature Venom instead of ASIB in my country.  Like only 1 cinema will show it and its a hassle to go there.  That's at least what my friends told me.  

Box me up

I mean, they aren't wrong. The box office numbers for the movie are higher domestic than they are foreign. Usually, that's not the best sign since foreign numbers are generally higher than domestic numbers. That said, the movie is still performing exceptionally well.

It's such an American focused story with SNL, Grammy... but for me it worked.

People only wanna see some tastless movies like Venom and all that kind of garbage, but don't want to see a phenomenal life changing movie that has soul in it ? WTF is wrong with this world?:saladga:

Isn’t that usually for blockbuster films? I don’t think it’s a bad sign at all. It’s the resurgence of the American Musical, it’s the new Golden Age. :firega:

It's a good movie. The music is great. But the film isn't outstanding. The critics loves it but the audience not so much. It's kinda "meh" for some people. Here in my country the cinema was almost empty, only 6/7 people.
