Pass The Popcorn: Watch The Extended Trailer For The Upcoming Amy Winehouse Doc 'Amy'

amy winehouse documentary trailer

Amy Winehouse's 2011 tragic death will haunt the world of soul forever. At the tender age of 27, the British R&B superstar was lost in the midst of what had become a tumultuous, high-profile artistic filled with as many empty bottles as it was full venues. Her life has been documented in the upcoming feature-length documentary, Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia and due for a U.S. release on July 3rd. Now, a new extended trailer for the documentary has finally been delivered.

In the two minute clip we see grainy footage of a young Winehouse playing guitar, dodging paparazzi cameras, and gradually turning from a shy girl with dreams of making it big into a woman who has lost control of the path she's on. It bodes well for Amy as a film, loaded with Ms. Winehouse's already-classic recordings and in-depth interviews from those that knew her best. The briefest of preview clips already appeared online weeks ago, but this new trailer offers a much more realized look at what we can expect from Amy as a whole. As soon as things open with a shot of Amy Winehouse in the studio, commenting "It's a bit upsetting at the end, isn't it?" it's clear we're due for an emotional ride. Watch the trailer below and grab your movie tickets soon--this one's a must-see.
