WEBWIRE

BURBANK, CA -- January 20, 2005 -- Warner Home Video:

-- Starring Academy Award(R) winner Kevin Costner and Featuring the Screen Debut of Singer-Star Whitney Houston

-- Ultra Romantic Suspense Thriller Arrives for First Time in Widescreen with New Digital Transfer in Dolby 5.1

-- Includes New Making-of Documentary and Whitney Houston Music Video of “I Will Always Love You”

“The Bodyguard” -- starring Academy Award(R) winner Kevin Costner (“Dances With Wolves,” “Field of Dreams,” “Tin Cup,” “JFK”) and multi-Grammy(R) award winning singer/actress Whitney Houston (“The Preacher’s Wife,” “Waiting to Exhale,” “Cinderella”) -- will arrive for the first time in widescreen on February 1 from Warner Home Video (WHV). In plenty of time for Valentine’s Day gift-giving and loaded with previously unavailable bonus content, including Whitney Houston’s music video “I Will Always Love You,” “The Bodyguard” Special Edition DVD will be available for $19.96 SRP.

“The Bodyguard” scored approximately $122 million at the domestic box-office with its combination of passionate romance, suspense and high-wattage star chemistry, and has sold more than four million videos to date. Whitney Houston, unequaled for her run of seven consecutive #1 records in the ’80s, not only made a spectacular screen debut in “The Bodyguard,” she also held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 14 weeks with this film rendition of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” Two songs from the film -- “I Have Nothing” and “Run to You” -- were nominated for Best Original Song Oscars(R).

Written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Big Chill,” “Silverado,” “The Accidental Tourist,” “Empire Strikes Back”) and directed by Mick Jackson (“L.A. Story,” “Volcano”), “The Bodyguard” stars Houston as a pop-music diva and Costner as the ultra-serious bodyguard assigned to protect her in the aftermath of several death threats. Initially repelled by each other like water and oil, a passion ignites between them as the danger increases, transforming them as everything around them explodes.
