Whitney Houston Documentary Slated for October 16 from Lionsgate

The true story behind one of the most iconic and talented performers of our time is told in Whitney (DVD: $19.98, Blu-ray: $24.99), slated for release on October 16 from Lionsgate.  With seven consecutive U.S. no. 1 singles, and 200 million+ albums sold worldwide, Whitney Houston (1963-2012) was a music sensation who starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals, and death at the age of 48. With the cooperation of the Estate of Whitney E. Houston, Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald unravels the story of her life and career in this production that features never-before-seen footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives, and original interviews with the people who knew the Grammy and Emmy award-winner. A two-time nominee at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, the documentary includes bonus features such as audio commentary with Macdonald and producer Simon Chinn, and a motion photo gallery.
