The first full trailer for HBO's documentary Tina, chronicling the life and legacy of Tina Turner, was unveiled earlier this month (see below). 

This week, the highly-anticipated film is set to hit Australian screens, debuting on Foxtel Sunday the 28th of March. 

In one of the greatest stories of talent and perseverance, the film details the legendary singer’s life and work with Ike Turner, including early hits like “Proud Mary” and “River Deep – Mountain High,” and her later solo career that peaked in the early 1980s with “Private Dancer” and “What’s Love Got To Do With It.”

A teaser trailer released last month went back to the beginnings oft Turner’s turbulent childhood. Told in her own words, the latest clip focuses on her pivotal decision to leave her abusive marriage to then-husband and bandmate Ike, leading to her platinum-selling solo career comeback in the early Eighties.  

"I had an abusive life," she says. "There's no other way to tell the story. ... The divorce, I got nothing. No money, no house. So I said, 'I'll just take my name.’” You can watch the trailer below.

An official description of the film promises an “intimate look at the life and career of musical icon Tina Turner, charting her improbable rise to early fame, her personal and professional struggles throughout her life and her even more improbable resurgence as a global phenomenon in the 1980s.” 

Turner’s incredible story will be told using previously unseen footage, rare audio and personal photos, alongside interviews with Oprah Winfrey, former MTV News host Kurt Loder, playwright Katori Hall and Turner’s current husband, Erwin Bach. Directed by Oscar-winning directors Dan Lindsay and T.J Martin, Tina debuts on Saturday, March 27 via HBO (streaming on HBO Max). Find out more info, here.
