See New Trailer For Whitney Houston Biopic

The life story of legendary diva Whitney Houston is coming to the big screen next month. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" tells the story of the choir girl turned international superstar, and stars Naomi Ackie as Whitney.

In the new trailer, we see Whitney facing off with record executives who inform her that some think her music isn't "black enough" - a charge the singer takes offense to. Her father John Houston (played by Clarke Peters) seems to treat her like a brand rather than a daughter, and her relationship with husband Bobby Brown (played by Ashton Sanders) is glimpsed as well. 

The movie is directed by Kasi Lemmons, who is no stranger to telling the story of strong Black women, having directed "Harriet", about abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The movie hits theaters December 21. See both trailers here --->
