First Look~ Whitney Houston’s Final Film “Sparkle”

The late great Whitney Houston seemed like she was on a comeback trail last year when she shot what would become her final film, the remake of Sparkle. The movie which details the formation of a singing group comprised of three sisters and the fallout from fame, drugs and bruised egos co-stars American Idol winner Jordin Sparks in her film debut, plus Mike Epps, Derek Luke, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter and CeeLo Green while Houston plays the former singer mother of the girls. Now, the trailer for the film which hits theaters on August 17th has hit the web and it looks like Houston was in fine form. The superstar is singing beautifully in the trailer and flexing her dramatic chops much like she did in her other hit films Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher’s Wife and, of course, The Bodyguard. Like those films, Sparkle will have a fantastic soundtrack with lots of new music from Sparks, Green and Houston. I’m so excited we will get to celebrate this incredible performer’s talents again on the big screen this summer. For more on the film, head here and check out the trailer for Sparkle below.
