Whitney Houston

Watch the First Trailer for the Whitney Houston Documentary

  /  04.28.2018

Before the highly-anticipated Whitney hits theaters this summer, fans get a sneak peek at the Roadside Attractions and Miramax documentary in the first official trailer.

“There’s the magic, there’s the voice, there’s the legend,” reads the trailer’s tagline. “You don’t know her story until you hear the truth.”

The documentary also promises “unprecedented access to family and friends” including Bobby Brown, Clive Davis, and Kevin Costner, as well as vintage footage of the late singer. “People think it’s so damn easy,” she says at one point in the clip. “And it’s not.”

This is the only Houston film with approval from the singer’s estate thus far. It will be directed by Kevin Macdonald, who recently spoke on his process. “I approached Whitney’s life like a mystery story,” he said. “Why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully?”

He went on to say that the movie will provide a different perspective on Whitney, who died in 2012 at the age of 48. “At its heart, Whitney is an intimate family story that reveals a new side to a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew,” he explained.

Whitney will world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month before hitting theaters July 6.
