The first trailer for Back To Black, the highly-anticipated Amy Winehouse biopic coming later this year, was released yesterday. British actress Marisa Abela (Industry) stars as Winehouse in the film, which was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy, 50 Shades of Grey). The movie was made in cooperation with The Amy Winehouse Estate, and will feature many of her songs. The movie follows the singer's early years in London, her rise to fame, and the making of her iconic album Back To Black. It's also expected to touch on Winehouse's struggle with substance abuse, which ultimately led to her death from an accidental alcohol overdose in July of 2011 at the age of 27.
