Michael Jackson Movie Gets a Release Date

Deceased King of Pop Michael Jackson’s final days will be coming to the big screen on October 30.

People magazine reports that the MJ documentary, This Is It, now has an official release date. As previously reported, the film, culled from nearly 100 hours of rehearsal footage, will chronicle Jackson’s preparation for his planned comeback string of concerts at London’s O2 Arena. In addition, some of the sequences will be presented in 3-D.

Proceeds from the film will go to the Jackson Family Trust, per an agreement struck in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

“[Jackson] was a perfectionist on stage and through this unique film, audiences will be able to see, many for the first time, how much Michael poured into making his performances as special as they were perfect,” says Rob Stringer, chairman of Sony Music Entertainment’s Columbia/Epic Label Group.
