Whitney Houston's biggest success as an actress, the 1992 hit film The Bodyguard, will be re-released in movie theaters across the US for an exclusive one night only engagement. The special re-release is to commemorate the movie's 20th anniversary as well as to mark the tragic passing of its leading lady, who died last month at the age of 48.
The film, co-starring Kevin Costner, was a semi-autobiographical account of Houston's own life as a talented and world-famous singer, and was a surprise box office smash success upon its initial release, bringing in almost half a billion dollars worldwide. The film's soundtrack also spawned Whitney's biggest hit song, a cover version of the Dolly Parton classic torch song "I Will Always Love You", which went to Number One in every country in the world with a published music chart.
Kevin Costner spoke at Whitney's funeral, commenting that she didn't feel she was a good enough actress for the role, saying "Whitney, if you could hear me now, I would tell you you weren’t just good enough. You were great.”
