Full Trailer: Cannes Documentary “Whitney”

Miramax and Roadside Attractions have revealed the full trailer for “Whitney,” the documentary about legendary singer and actress Whitney Houston, in time for the film’s world premiere at Cannes today.

Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history, with over 200 million album sales worldwide. She was the only artist to chart seven consecutive U.S. No. 1 singles.

Her brilliant career ultimately gave way to erratic behaviour, scandals and death at age 48. The new film is dubbed an “intimate, unflinching portrait” of Houston akin to the way “Amy” was for Amy Winehouse a few years ago.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald helms the film which opens in cinemas July 6th.
