Trending Now

The Michael Jackson film This Is It – based on his concert rehearsal footage is to be released worldwide on October 28, after a Los Angeles judge greenlighted the joint venture between the tour’s promoters AEG Live and Columbia Pictures today (August 11).

Columbia Pictures are reported to have paid £35 million for rights to the rehearsal footage, and court papers suggest that Jackson’s estate will get 90% of the profits, with the final 10% going to AEG Live.

The Michael Jackson This Is It film is contracted to be not more than 150 minutes long, a PG-rating and ‘footage that paints Jackson in a bad light will not be permitted.’
