A new trailer for an Amy Winehouse movie shows footage of the star predicting she "wasn't going to be very famous" and saying "she'd never handle it (fame)".

The film, titled Amy, was launched on the official website ( and is the first trailer to be released for the title. In it Winehouse can be seen singing and talking to the camera.

When a voice behind the camera asks her: "How big do you think you're going to be?" she replies: "I don't. I don't think I'm going to be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it, I would probably go mad..."

Winehouse died at the age of 27 in July 2011 from alcohol poisoning.

Amy is due for release in the UK on July 3.
