Extended Movie Trailer: Whitney Houston Biopic ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’

Published: Wednesday 9th Nov 2022 by Sam

Whitney Houston‘s star is one that shone like no other and continues to radiate a decade after her untimely passing.

Fittingly, then, her story is set for the big-screen-biopic treatment by way of ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody.’

Set to hit theaters worldwide next month, the movie sets out to serve as the most seismic and definitive take on the diva’s story.

Directed by Kasi Lemons, ‘I Wanna Dance’ is penned and produced by Anthony McCarten – who helmed Oscar winner ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ (the blockbuster biopic about Queen). It notably serves as the only film production on Houston’s life to be released in partnership with the songbird’s Estate and longtime collaborator Clive Davis onboard. A move that will see the flick feature original recordings of the icon’s music too.

With buzz aplenty surrounding the project, Sony Pictures has unwrapped an extended trailer  – showcasing lead Naomi Ackie as Houston and the lifelong span the ‘I Wanna Dance’ will dive into.

Watch the latest look at the film after the jump…

‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ hits US theaters on December 21 and arrives in UK cinemas on December 26.

    They need to stop with the Whitney movies and documentaries. As LEGENDARY as her career is, she deserves better! I blame her greedy ass sister in law.

    No. She doesn’t look like Whitney, she looks like Debra Wilson from Mad TV playing Whitney, so I can’t take it seriously lol.

    This woman looks absolutely nothing like Whitney and is an insult to even having her portray Whitney. In great biopics like Ray and even Elvis sometimes you forgot it wasn’t the actual real person because the resemblance and portrayal was sooooo spot on. cause

    Whitney did not have a twin sister but we will definitely applaud Anthony and Clive Davis for showing the true story of Whitney
