  • New Whitney Trailer Takes You Beyond the Headlines

"The new documentary about Houston, Whitney", bills itself as an "unflinching" look at the singer's rise and fall, released its first trailer on Wednesday and it doesn't hold back.

The documentary premiered at the Cannes Film Festival today, May 16.

Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), Whitney is produced by Simon Chinn, Jonathan Chinn, and Lisa Erspamer, and executive produced by Nicole David, Pat Houston, Will Clarke, Andy Mayson, Mike Runagall, Zanne Devine, Rosanne Korenberg and Joe Patrick. Described as the definitive story of the global superstar, the film features interviews with many of Houston's relatives and close acquaintances, two of whom make the claims against Warwick.

Check out the trailer as it teases revelations about Houston's longtime friend and assistant Robyn Crawford and the nature of their relationship.

In the preview, many familiar tabloid headlines are referenced as vignettes of Houston's life flash onscreen and a banner promises to reveal "the answers you never knew" to the "questions you want asked".

Starbucks Ramps Up China Plans, Will Nearly Double Store Count By 2022
By 2022, it intends to set up on the mainland 6,000 stores, while the previous target was to set up 5,000 stores by 2021. Today Starbucks now has around 3,300 stores in China and it aims to increase this to 6,000 by the end of 2022.


In one moment in the trailer, someone says Crawford was Houston's "safety net" while claiming Brown was "jealous" of Houston's success.

"There were always a lot of secrets", one Houston pal says in the new trailer.

"He wanted to be on the stage, he wanted to be in the forefront", the person contends in the clip.

The first official trailer for Whitney has arrived and it's packed with information about the late, great, icon, Whitney Houston. "And eventually, she (Houston) stepped down to lift him up".

Elsewhere, Houston criticizes fellow pop star Paula Abdul. 'That girl is singing off-key on the record'. Through interviews with those who knew her best, intimate topics like "Do you think she understood herself?" and "You must have known about the drug use", are broached. And I thought that was interesting.
