HOLLYWOOD—Just weeks after Whitney Houston’s death, “The Bodyguard,” the film in which she made her big screen debut, will return to theaters for a one-night only special screening on Wednesday, March 28.
Starring Kevin Costner and Houston, “The Bodyguard” became one of the most popular hits of 1992. Additionally, “The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack” album went on to become the No. 1 best-selling soundtrack of all time with nearly 12 million copies sold in the U.S., and the sixth best-selling album overall in the Nielsen SoundScan era. Featuring the hugely successful cover of “I Will Always Love You,” the album also launched four other hit singles for Houston: “I’m Every Woman,” “Queen of the Night,” and two Oscar nominated songs, “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You.”
Tickets for the 20th anniversary of “The Bodyguard” event are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvent.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
Presented by NCM Fathom Events and Warner Home Video, the 20th anniversary of “The Bodyguard” event will be broadcast to more than 400 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.
Directed by Mick Jackson, Costner stars as a former Secret Service Agent-turned-bodyguard who is hired to protect Houston’s character, a music star, from an unknown stalker. The bodyguard ruffles the singer’s feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. Eventually, the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home.
Warner Home Video will release “The Bodyguard” 20th anniversary edition on Blu-ray Tuesday, March 27. Special features include Houston’s well-known “I Will Always Love You” music video and “Memories of The Bodyguard,” a making-of documentary. Featuring director Mick Jackson, writer-producer Lawrence Kasdan, actors Houston and Costner and others, the cast and crew will discuss the story’s 17-year path to the screen, reworks of the script, how Jackson and Houston joined the production and more. Houston died Feb. 11 at age 48.
