Pass The Popcorn: Watch The First Trailer For The Amy Winehouse Documentary 'Amy'
A few weeks back , we were made privy to the fact that a documentary treatment of the late Amy Winehouse was in development and would be landing sometime this summer in the UK as Amy. Yesterday, it was reported the highly-coveted, wholly necessary treatment had been picked up for US distribution by A24 and now, we’re being gifted an early glimpse at the project with the arrival of its very first trailer. The teaser doesn’t reveal all too much, only that the doc will be as hard-hitting and moving as we had all hoped.
For those playing catch-up, Amy strives to explore the influence and artistry of one of contemporary soul’s brightest stars through exclusive interviews and testimony from friends and family in a two-hour doc helmed by SENNA director Asif Kapaida. At the moment, fans across the pond are the only ones guaranteed a viewing, as the official premiere date in the UK has been set for July 3rd, but now that stateside distribution seems to have been secured, we can expect a US date to arrive imminently. Put your eyes to the very first documentary treatment of Amy Winehouse’s life and times below and join the reminiscences of a talent gone much too soon. Check back for updates on the release in the months to come.
