The movie soundtrack is out at midnight wherever you are, and it contains some new remixes

Most notably there's 2 versions of Don't Cry For Me - they've isolated the vocals from her 1994 live performance, though not completely successfully. It sounds a bit echoey and far away.





The Darkchild Mix basically recreates the orchestral feel of the performance and does the best it can with the a cappella. The Sam Feldt remix sounds a bit more awkward and fan-made in comparison - though it's not a bad remix.

The SG Lewis Mix of I'm Every Woman is quite a respectful and classy update of the original, and the Moto Blanco Mix of You'll Never Stand Alone sounds very much like you'd expect too. Both are much better than the Clean Bandit mix.

The 90s eurohouse sounding Jax Jones mix of The Greatest Love Of All will probably be a bit Marmite, but I like it myself.

Thanks for the heads up, look forward to hearing this!
 
Latest trailer.. I think it looks quite good actually?



And getting some nice reviews





“This was a standard biopic, but Naomi Ackie is amazing as Whitney. Moonlight’s Ashton Sanders was so good as Bobby Brown. Stanley Tucci as Clive Barker is also good, charming and funny, they even note Davis’ bisexuality.”

“Brown is portrayed as a little worm. They highlight that Whitney was 6 years older than him and he was trouble from the get-go. It’s all very lighthearted, until it’s not. This was penned by the same guy who wrote “Bohemian Rhapsody” but at least here he got to tell the dirty details.”

“All in all a solid 150 minute movie. Barry Ackroyd shot it. They spend a great deal showing Whitney’s lesbian relationship. Much like in ‘Bohemian’ there’s re-enactments of Whitney’s iconic musical performances and such. Those were highlights, but it’s very digitally shot, not much of an auteur movie for Kasi Lemmons, and kinda bland-looking, but I liked it.”

I'll be interested to see how I Will Always Love You comes across in the film, because that South Africa performance really is far from perfect vocally.
