Whitney Houston's 'The Bodyguard' returns to theaters

Posted on

Bodyguard Whintey Houston

Whitney Houston’s biggest box-office hit is coming back to theaters for a one-night event. The Bodyguard, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, will play in 400 movie theaters across the country on March 28.

The romantic thriller follows the relationship between Houston’s multi-hyphenate superstar and the former Secret Service bodyguard (Kevin Costner) hired to protect her from a stalker. The Bodyguard was the second highest-grossing film of 1992, and the soundtrack earned two Oscars and three Grammy awards. Cinematically, it marked the highlight of Houston’s career and was an experience that Costner spoke of fondly at her funeral.

The one-night event will take place just one day after Warner Bros. releases The Bodyguard 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray.
