The film will also give a look into Whitney’s personal life, which had many highs and lows. Sadly, she died at the age of 48 in 2012. Her cause of death was accidental drowning and contributing factors were cocaine use and heart disease.
It will also share more about her relationships including her marriage to Bobby Brown. They had one child together, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who died just a few years after her mother in 2015. The biopic is brought to the audience by the same writers who made Bohemian Rhapsody, the biopic about Queen’s Freddie Mercury.
Bohemian Rhapsody did quite well and fans are still raving over the recent Elvis biopic, so chances are the Whitney Houston one will shine in theaters too. Watch the trailer below and share your thoughts with us:
