'The Bodyguard' Returns to Theaters for One Night Only

The Bodyguard celebrates its 20th anniversary with a return to the big screen on March 28.
For one night only, fans and film supporters alike will be given the chance to see The Bodyguard live in theaters again, reports The Hollywood Reporter. On March 28th at 7:30p.m. some 400 theaters across the nation will screen the film in honor of its 20th anniversary.

Warner Bros. and NCM Fathom are joining forces to make it happen.

When it was released in 1992, The Bodyguard became the second highest-grossing film in the world. The soundtrack, which featured several Whitney Houston songs, became the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time — selling more than 42 million copies. Popular songs “I Will Always Love You” and “Run to You” earned Oscar nominations as well.

At Houston’s funeral, her Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner said, “A lot of leading men could’ve played my part. 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.”

Houston’s final movie, Sparkle, co-starring Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter and Mike Epps, will hit theaters nationwide on August 17.
