"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.
