The makers of Back to Black have released the trailer of the film, based on singer Amy Winehouse’s life. The trailer comes not long after the release of the film’s teaser back in January this year.
The title of the biopic Back to Black is a throwback to the name of the album that saw Winehouse rise to stardom in the world of music. The Sam Taylor-Johnson directorial stars Marisa Abela as the famous singer, who died of alcohol poisoning a decade ago at her house in London. This is the first time that the story about the rise and fall of Winehouse is getting the large-screen treatment in Hollywood. Earlier iterations of Winehouse’s life story include Asif Kapadia’s Amy and Marina Parker’s Reclaiming Amy.
Winehouse’s family signed an agreement with Monumental Productions for the making of the film, whose production was wrapped up last year. Back to Black also stars Eddie Marsan in the role of Winehouse’s father, Mitch, and Blake Fielder-Civil as her beau. The film will be released only in theatres on May 17, 2024.
