Here is the trailer to Whitney Houston's last movie, Sparkle, starring Jordin Sparks (from American Idol)...
She plays the mother of a trio of singing sisters destined for stardom during the Motown era. Title character is played by Jordin Sparks, and her sisters by Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter. Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and Cee-lo Green also star in the project directed by Salim Akil and written by Mara Brock Akil from a story by Nicholas August and Howard Rosenman. The TriStar release is slated to open August 17.
All things considered, it looks better than the original Irene Cara version and it also seems like Whitney actually does a pretty decent job as the mother.
So, that's something.
