The New Trailer for Forthcoming Whitney Documentary Will Give You Chills

The New Trailer for Forthcoming Whitney Documentary Will Give You Chills

Whitney, which is directed by the Scottish film-maker Kevin Macdonald, premiered at the Cannes film festival on Thursday.

The trailer touches on multiple hot-button issues that surrounded Houston, as a disembodied voice fires off questions about drug choice, addiction, her relationships with Bobby Brown and Robyn Crawford.

"There were times when I looked up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?'" Houston says in one scene, reflecting on her rise to celebrity and its downfalls.

"Robyn was her safety net". "He wanted to be on the stage; he wanted to be [at] the forefront".

Though Macdonald interviewed Brown for the doc, he told The Hollywood Reporter the former New Edition member is "actually is not ready to tell the truth, for whatever reason". Directed by Oscar victor Kevin Macdonald, the film explores the late singer's life and features interviews with those closest to her. Reid makes a bold statement in the trailer saying he wasn't aware of Houston's drug use.

The film will also highlight Houston's relationship with her mother who was admittedly tough on her superstar daughter. In the trailer, a clip of Houston making a snide remark about Paula Abdul singing off-key captures a casual harshness familiar to all.

The first official trailer for Whitney has arrived and it's packed with information about the late, great, icon, Whitney Houston.

Of course, it's Houston's mother, Cissy, who closes the trailer. And she said to me, "I just don't understand what happened, she was the most lovely girl, ' and this was someone who knew her really well".

If you need us before then, we'll be refining our "I Will Always Love You" rendition.
