The documentary on Michael Jackson’s final tour programmes ‘This is it’ will have simultaneous premieres in more than 15 cities globally.
The movie, a collection of footages from rehearsals for the 50 London shows he had planned to do in July this year before his untimely death in June due to drug overdose, will hit screens across the world on October 27 and 28, Contactmusic reported.
Audiences in cities including Los Angeles, London, New York, Berlin and Germany will be able to see the film at the same time, according to a spokesperson for Sony Pictures.
“Michael Jackson has an army of fans everywhere around the world... we are giving the audiences an incredible opportunity to join together in celebration of Michael Jackson’s incredible career,” said Jeff Black, Chairman, Sony Pictures.
The picture will have a limited two-week run in theatres, and bosses at AEG Live, the concert company behind the footage, will donate the majority of the film’s profits to the Jackson Family Trust.
