New Whitney Trailer Takes You Beyond the Headlines

New Whitney Trailer Takes You Beyond the Headlines

One in particular, appears to be Paula Abdul who Houston effortlessly shaded as being the inferior singer. The trailer for Whitney places "heart" as a pivotal point in the documentary, which is appropriate, as it is the first Whitney Houston documentary to be made with the permission of the Houston family estate. The highly-anticipated documentary directed by Kevin Macdonald will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday and features insights from the music world's biggest players and her inner circle of family and friends.

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. An interviewee speaking off camera in the teaser can be heard saying "Robyn was [Houston's] safety net" and "Bobby was jealous". Another follows up, saying: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage".

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".

'I never knew there was any addiction, ' Reid asserts.

The film will also highlight Houston's relationship with her mother who was admittedly tough on her superstar daughter.
