WATCH: Lifetime ‘Whitney’ Biopic Trailer

Could the Whitney Houston Lifetime biopic actually be…good?

BuzzFeed debuted the trailer for Whitney on Thursday and it already looks 100 times better than that so-called Aaliyah biopic, which Lifetime premiered last month.

Could it be because Whitney actually features the late pop diva’s songs and the actors more or less resembles the people they’re portraying?

Starring model Yaya DeCosta as Houston and Arlen Escarpeta as Bobby Brown, Whitney chronicles the rise and fall of “The Voice.”

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!

The biopic also marks the directorial debut for Angela Bassett (maybe Wendy Williams should take notes? #NoShade).

Whitney premieres Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
