Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard with the addition of previously released special features for select digital retailers on 10/31/17. The film marked the acting debut of multi-Grammy® award winning singer/actress Whitney Houston (The Preacher’s Wife, Waiting to Exhale, Cinderella) and also stars Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (Dances With Wolves, Field of Dreams, Tin Cup, JFK). Written by Lawrence Kasdan (The Big Chill, Silverado, The Accidental Tourist, The Empire Strikes Back), and directed by Mick Jackson (L.A. Story, Volcano) The Bodyguard stars Costner as a former Secret Service Agent-turned-bodyguard who is hired to protect Houston’s character, a music star, from an unknown stalker. The bodyguard ruffles the singer’s feathers and most of her entourage by tightening security more than they feel is necessary. Eventually the bodyguard and the singer start an affair, and she begins to believe his precautions are necessary when the stalker strikes close to home. The film is also available on Blu-ray and DVD.
