Becoming the second highest grossing film worldwide in 1992, The Bodyguard, a love story starring Whitney Houston as a famous singer who hires a bodyguard played by Kevin Costner to protect her from violent fans, is making its way back to theaters this month to celebrate the 20th anniversary.
Many of Whitney’s signature hits appeared in the movie and on the soundtrack including “I Will Always Love You,” and also holds the record for the best-selling soundtrack of all time will over 44 million sold.
The release is timed with the 20th anniversary of the film, but many fans will surely head to the theaters with the memory of Whitney Houston in mind. Her co-star Kevin Costner recently spoke at Whitney’s funeral last month about working with her on the movie.
“A lot of leading men could’ve played my part,” he said. “But you, Whitney, I truly believe you were the only one who could’ve played Rachel Marron at that time. You weren’t just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn’t just like you, Whitney, they loved you.”
The 20th Anniversary of The Bodyguard will re-release in theaters around the country on March 28th. For tickets and showtimes for a theater near you, click here.
