Despite pleas from her family to let her rest in peace, the first trailer for the Whitney Houston biopic is here.

Simply titled Whitney, the one minute trailer gives a glimpse into the troubled singer’s life.

Starring Yaya DaCosta as Houston, the clip shows her rise to fame and tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown.

Set to air on US screens in January, we’re certain the controversy surrounding this film is only just beginning.
