Tickets for the documentary of Michael Jackson's tour preparations This Is It will go on sale September 27th. The movie will have a very limited engagement--two weeks only--in worldwide theaters starting October 28th. AEG Live handed over over 100 hours of footage shot over 2.5 months to Sony Pictures. Sony has pleged to have the film ready for its October release date.
"As we began assembling the footage for the motion picture, we realized we captured something extraordinary, unique and very special," director Kenny Ortega said. "It's a very private, exclusive look into a creative genius' world...This Is It may go down as the greatest concert that no one got a chance to see...with this film, we get a rare portrait of Michael as he prepares for his final curtain call and what I believe was going to be his master work." Michael passed three weeks before his concert was to debut in the O2 Arena in London, England.
