See the trailer for 'Sparkle': Whitney Houston's last film

The trailer for "Sparkle," Whitney Houston's final film, has hit the web. "Sparkle" is a remake of the 1976 musical, featuring Irene Cara ("Fame") in the role now played by "American Idol" champion Jordin Sparks. Think of it as "Dreamgirls"-Lite.

Houston is heavily present throughout the trailer, saying such prescient things as "Was my life not enough of a cautionary tale for you?"

"Sparkle" hits theater August 17. What do you think of the trailer? More importantly, what do you think of Whitney?
