Whitney Houston and "The Bodyguard" back on the big screen one-night only
One of the biggest box office hits of the 1990s returns to movie theaters this month celebrating The 20th Anniversary of The Bodyguard, a special one-night in-theater event at the Edwards Theatre on Wednesday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m. Starring Kevin Costner and the late Whitney Houston, "The Bodyguard" became one of the most popular hits of 1992, marking Houston's acting debut. Additionally, The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album went on to become the No. 1 best-selling soundtrack of all time with nearly 12 million copies sold in the U.S., and the sixth best-selling album overall in the Nielsen SoundScan era. Featuring the hugely successful cover of "I Will Always Love You," the album also launched four other hit singles for Houston: “I'm Every Woman,” “Queen of the Night,” and two Oscar nominated songs, “I Have Nothing” and "Run to You.”
Tickets for The 20th Anniversary of The Bodyguard event are available at the Edwards Theater box office and online at www.FathomEvents.com. Presented by NCM Fathom Events and Warner Bros., The 20th Anniversary of The Bodyguard event will be broadcast to more than 400 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network.
“When originally released, the story and unforgettable songs of The Bodyguard, captured the hearts of audiences everywhere,” says Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Through this special anniversary presentation, fans will be able to come together for one night and see it once more on the big screen.”
Directed by Mick Jackson, Costner stars as a former Secret Service Agent-turned-bodyguard who is hired to protect Houston's character, a music star, from an unknown stalker. The bodyguard ruffles the singer's feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. Eventually the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home.
