Bobby Brown, Cissy Houston remember Whitney Houston in powerful Whitney trailer

L Whitney Houston R Kevin Macdonald NCKevin Mac Donald consulted with experts before revealing Whitney's abuser

Whitney, which is directed by the Scottish film-maker Kevin Macdonald, premiered at the Cannes film festival on Thursday.

As the trailer hints, the docu is unflinching and uses previously unseen archival footage, demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives and interviews with friends and family who were there for Houston's ups and downs.

In the preview, many familiar tabloid headlines are referenced as vignettes of Houston's life flash onscreen and a banner promises to reveal "the answers you never knew" to the "questions you want asked".

Drug addiction loomed large in Houston's life and contributed to her death, but in another gripping moment from the trailer, Reid denied he knew about the singer's struggle, despite working with her throughout the years.

The first official trailer for Whitney has arrived and it's packed with information about the late, great, icon, Whitney Houston.

"There were times when I would look up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?'" Whitney says, referring to her fame.

One in particular, appears to be Paula Abdul who Houston effortlessly shaded as being the inferior singer.

A celebrated soul and gospel performer in the 1960s and early 70s, Dee Dee Warwick's career was nevertheless overshadowed by the success of her sister, for whom she performed backing vocals towards the end of her career. "That girl is singing off-key on the record". Whitney also explores Houston's complicated relationship with her mother and highly publicized yoyo romance with Bobby Brown. And I thought that was interesting.

Whitney debuts July 6 in theaters nationwide via Roadside Attractions and Miramax. "And then Nicole sent me this article about Whitney's rendition of 'The Star-Spangled Banner" and how that changed how the song has been understood and sung ever since", he said. Watch the new trailer above.
