The documentary of Michael Jackson
's tour, This Is It
, is in theaters October 28th. Tickets went on sale this past Sunday and according to E! the movie is outselling some heavy hitters.
Fandango said the concert movie was its new top-seller, ousting The Twilight Saga: New Moon. MovieTickets.com said it had already recorded more than 550 sellouts. And to put a global point on it, Sony Pictures bragged about big business from Britain to Japan.
This Is It opens Oct. 28, if you don't count sneaks on Oct. 27. Sony says the movie, culled from rehearsals for the late Jackson's not-to-be London shows, will play only two weeks.
This is no shocker and the early footage we have seen of the concerts looks like he was more than prepared for the tour. In addition, it's an excellent way to honor his musical legacy.
