The first trailer for the new Whitney Houston documentary Whitney has been released. Houston died on February 9, 2012, aged 48. She was found unconscious in the bathtub in her room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office later said her death was caused by drowning, heart disease, and cocaine use.
The documentary premiered at 2017’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York, but will arrive in cinemas on July 6. It will feature previously unseen archival footage, interviews with Houston’s family, rare live performances, unreleased songs, and more. The film follows last year’s Whitney: Can I Be Me, which was directed by Nick Broomfield and Rudi Dolezal.
A trailer for the new documentary that gives fans an up close and personal look into Whitney Houston’s life outside of the spotlight has been released. Besides interviews from her close friends and family, director Kevin MacDonald also included home videos and never-before seen footage of the late singer during the height of her career. Whitney will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May before it debuts in the U.S on July 6th.
