The highly awaited, super controversial Amy Winehouse documentary “Amy” has its first official trailer. The slightly over 2 minute long clip shows a fascinating footage from the Grammy-winning singer’s life. The trailer includes footage from Winehouse’s upbringing, a quote from Tony Bennett, meditations on her struggles with fame and shots of Winehouse with her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.
“I fell in love with someone who I would have died for. And that’s like a real drug, isn’t it?” Winehouse asks at one point.
Prior to the official trailer release, a teaser trailer for “Amy” was released in April and the film screened at the Cannes to rave review. However, the documentary has been blasted by Winehouse’s dad, who insisted that Asif Kapadia’s team were misleading about their failure to help the late-singer overcome her drug and alcohol addictions. The “Back To Black” singer died in July 2011 at the age of 27.
“Amy”, directed by Asif Kapadia, is set to be released on July 3rd in the U.K.
