Video: Your First Look at Sparkle

Here is what everyone has been waiting for; the first trailer for “Sparkle,” the remake of the classic 1976 film of the same name. Starring Jordin Sparks, Tike Sumpter, Carmen Ejogo and the late Whitney Houston, the project is due to be released nationwide by Sony Pictures on August 17th.

I don’t want to give too much away, but for those of you who were wondering- it appears several songs from the original film will indeed be making an appearance in the updated version.

Now, the only question is whether or not Carmen and Tika did their own singing.

Sparkle’s original three leading ladies all did their own singing in film, though Aretha Franklin recorded the songs for the soundtrack.

Can’t wait until the official promotion for this film kicks off.


  1. As much as I love, love, love me some Whitney, this looks JUST like another Dream Girls type of movie: costumes, hair, characters, the whole feeling of the movie. The original (Sparkle) looks and of course will be 10x better. This remake just looks… blah! =/

  2. The original Sparkle looks much better than the remake but I do like the costumes.
