Lifetime has revealed the trailer for it's Whiney Houston biopic, Whitney, and it doesn't look terrible. Actually, it looks pretty good, for Lifetime. Honestly, after the highly hated on Aaliyah biopic the network released this fall (see Timbaland's pictorial reviews), this one better be good.

The story line chronicles Houston's meteoric rise fame: from a choir singer in Newark, New Jersey, to the eighth wonder of the world. The film also chronicles Houston's highly publicized and extremely tumultuous relationship with Bobby Brown... and cocaine. While Whitney's drug use was often speculated about, it was never confirmed until after her death in 2012. The trailer, however, features Whitney's demons front and center. Directed by Angela Bassett, and starring Yaya DeCosta (The Butler), the film certainly shapes up on the talent end.

Watch the trailer below, and see BuzzFeed for the exclusive world premiere:
