'The Bodyguard' Returns to Theaters for One Night Only

3/16/2012, 12:49 p.m.

For one night only, fans and film supporters alike will be given the chance to see "The Bodyguard" live in theaters again, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., March 28, some 400 theaters across the nation will screen the film in honor of its 20th anniversary.

When it was released in 1992, The Bodyguard became the second highest-grossing film in the world. The soundtrack, which featured several Whitney Houston songs, became the best-selling movie soundtrack of all time -- selling more than 42 million copies. Popular songs "I Will Always Love You" and "Run to You" earned Oscar nominations as well.

At Houston's funeral, her Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner said, "A lot of leading men could've played my part. But you, Whitney, I truly believe you were the only one who could've played Rachel Marron at that time. You weren't just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn't just like you, Whitney, they loved you."

Houston's final movie, Sparkle, co-starring Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter and Mike Epps, will hit theaters nationwide on Aug. 17.
