Here's The First Teaser Trailer Of Upcoming Whitney Houston Documentary



Roadside Attractions drops the first trailer for Whitney Houston's upcoming documentary aptly titled Whitney.

The official biopic, which is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, has also been approved by the singer's family.

The almost two-minute clip opens with multiple clips taken from Houston's concerts in the past couple of years. The documentary also features interviews with the singer's family members and some friends from the industry.

Throwback footages of Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, are also shown in the trailer. Toward the end of the video, a massive Houston fan holding a signage can be seen. Her yellow placard reads "Whitney Houston You Gave Us More Love Than We Will Ever Need."

Kevin Macdonald Talks About 'Whitney'

Whitney is directed by Kevin Macdonald. Prior to the release of the documentary, Macdonald talked about the kind of approach he used to bring the singer's story to life.

"I approached Whitney's life like a mystery story; why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully? [Her estate] entrusted me with the 'keys to the vault' while giving me complete freedom to follow the story wherever it went," said Macdonald.

The director added that Whitney is a family story that will give viewers a different point of view about the late singer.

Whitney Houston's Death

Houston passed away on Feb. 11, 2012. Toxicology reports revealed that the singer died of coronary heart disease. Prior to the release of the documents, fans speculated on the possibility that the singer died due a to a drug overdose. After all, she was found unresponsive in the bathtub at her hotel room in Los Angeles.

Bobby Brown, Houston's ex-partner, recently said that he does not think the award-winning musician died from drugs.

"She was really working hard on herself to try to be a sober person and, um, she was a great woman," Brown said.

He also said that he thinks Houston did not have any traces of drugs in her system at the time of her death. However, the toxicology reports also confirmed that there was cocaine, marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril, and Benadryl in Houston's body when she passed away.

Bobbi Kristina Brown's Death

Three years after Houston's demise, her daughter Bobbi Kristina passed away on July 26, 2015. The cause of her death was revealed to be lobar pneumonia.

Marijuana, alcohol, morphine, and other drugs were also found in her system. Her then-boyfriend, Nick Gordon, was accused of giving Bobbi Kristina a toxic cocktail that might have led to her death.

Whitney is slated for July 6, 2018 premiere in the United States.
