Bradley Cooper Pulls Back from Venice Film Festival Maestro Premiere

Bradley Cooper will not attend the premiere of his new feature Maestro at the Venice feature Festival in solidarity with the SAG-AFTRA strike.

Cooper directed Maestro, and he also acts as Leonard Bernstein in the Netflix biography. It is his second feature picture directing venture after the box office smash A Star Is Born. That praised musically focused romance movie also opened in Venice five years ago, earning generally rave reviews, $436 million at the global box office, and eight Oscar nominations.

This year’s Venice International Film Festival, which runs from August 30 to September 9, has already sparked controversy by scheduling new works by Roman Polanski and Woody Allen outside of competition. Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, Michael Mann’s Ferrari, Ava DuVernay’s Origin, and David Fincher’s The Killer are among the films scheduled for the Venice main competition.

Although the DGA reached an agreement with the AMPTP just weeks before the actors went on strike, the big-name directors can potentially still present and promote their movie. Bradley Cooper, on the other hand, is taking a step back owing to his support for people now on the picket lines.



Don’t just scratch the surface. Get the best of the beasts!
