Amy Winehouse movie preview (2015)
Above is the very telling first trailer for the forthcoming documentary, Amy, on the short life and times of the late great Amy Winehouse. In it the singer, who died at age 27 of alcohol poisoning, incorrectly predicts in an early interview how she figured that she was not going to be very famous. In regards to fame, she said, "I don't think I could handle it. I'd probably go mad!"
The film, directed by Asif Kapedia (Senna), promises to include a lot of unseen archival footage as well as feature some never before heard Amy Winehouse tracks (likely to appear on an accompanying soundtrack).
No doubt there'll be more trailers for Amy published before its scheduled theatrical release in July. In the meantime, check out Amy Winehouse's back catalog at Amoeba Music, which includes the track "Back To Black" (video below) -- the title track of her second album released by Universal in 2006. The song can be heard in the above movie teaser, albeit in an altered, slower, stretched-out version that isolated the acapella parts and mixed them over an eerie sounding instrumental for full haunting effect.
