The Bodyguard film poster is among the most interesting ever created.
The black and white mixture of rain and Kevin Costner holding Whitney Houston tight instantly offered a crystal clear concept of what the romantic thriller could be like. 27 years after its launch, it’s nonetheless the endearing picture from the movie, and one of many fundamental the explanation why it went on to gross $411 million worldwide.
However Kevin Costner has now made a shocking revelation that Whitney Houston isnâ€™t really on The Bodyguard poster.
â€œThat wasnâ€™t even Whitney really,â€ Costner informedÂ Leisure Weekly.Â â€œShe had gone dwelling and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was acceptable anyway. She was frightened.â€
The picture for the poster was taken straight out of one in all The Bodyguardâ€™s most memorable scenes, which noticed Costnerâ€™s Frank Farmer carrying musical celebrity Rachel Marron out of a nightclub after a riot has damaged out. Costner immediately recognised that it will make for the right poster.
â€œI picked that image out as a result of my good friend Ben Glass took itâ€¦I despatched it to Warner Bros and I am going, â€˜Thereâ€™s the poster.â€™ As a result of it was so evocative. It wasnâ€™t particular pictures; it wasnâ€™t something.â€
Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros had a difficulty with this alternative as a result of it didnâ€™t present Whitney Houstonâ€™s face. In actual fact, Costner recalled that they have been so adamant that the singer wanted to be seen they made â€œ5 mockups the place they put her head [on it], the place sheâ€™s trying [out].â€
Costner gained them over by glibly dismissing their efforts, and saying, â€œGuys, I believe we had it the primary time.â€ The truth that The Bodyguard poster continues to be rightfully thought to be iconic proves that he was clearly in the best.
