A Young Amy Winehouse Predicts Her Own Downfall in 'Amy' Trailer
By Sophie Schillaci
If the Amy teaser trailer is any indication, fans are going to need lots of tissues when this doc hits theaters.
A young Amy Winehouse tells her own story in the doc, directed by BAFTA-winner Asif Kapaida (Senna) and due in UK theaters on July 3. Among the footage, set to Winehouse's "Back to Black," is chilling audio from a pre-fame interview with the singer.
Asked how famous she thinks she'll become, Winehouse replies: "I don't. I don't think I'm gonna be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it, I would probably go mad."
Winehouse would go on to win six GRAMMY Awards and two BRIT Awards in the too-brief span of her career. The 27-year-old died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, after famously battling with substance abuse.
The trailer comes one day after news broke that A24 had secured the rights to distribute Amy in the U.S. While there is no word on an official release date, Deadline reports that "July is being eyed" -- nearly four years to the day since Winehouse's death.
