The Bodyguard’ Returns To Theaters For 30th Anniversary
Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard will celebrate its 30th anniversary in theaters!
According to the movie's official website, fans will be able to watch the 1992 drama on the big screen on November 6 or November 9. Tickets for the special screenings are expected to go on sale on September 28 at TheBodyguard30.com.
The Bodyguard tells the story of pop icon Rachel Marron, played by Houston, as she navigates an obsessive stalker sending her disturbing threats.“The Bodyguard’s story and songs are indelibly etched on the hearts of movie and music fans all around the globe,” Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions for Trafalgar Releasing, said, Deadline notes.
Frueh continued, “We are pleased to partner with Warner Bros. to bring this anniversary celebration to fans.” The Mick Jackson-directed film received widespread critical and public acclaim. Not only did it produce one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time but Houston's lungs of steel also earned her two Grammy Awards on the back of hit "I Will Always Love You."
Fans will also be able to enjoy a musical compilation of the late Houston, after the film's closing scenes.
The Bodyguard's 30th anniversary comes just months ahead of the highly-anticipated release of Houston biopic I Wanna Dance with Somebody, which stars Naomi Ackie, which hits theaters on Dec. 21.
