Much awaited "Michael Jackson's This Is It" movie is going to hit the world on theaters and IMAX on October 28th with advance screening on the 27th. The companion 2-disc CD set album to the motion picture will be released on October 27th featuring Michael's biggest hits.

I have always been a big fan of Michael Jackson. Taking away all the controversies and troubles he got himself into and just listening to his songs, he is really a unique musician and performer. No one can ever be compared or leveled to his contribution to world music. I guess that is the most important thing to consider when remembering Michael Jackson.

The Movie

The highly anticipated movie "Michael Jackson's This Is It" reportedly sold-out unprecidented number in first day of advance ticket sales in North America. More than $1 Million in ticket sales in Japan alone. The pre-sales is breaking record sales throughout the world due to fans trying to grab first tickets to the two-week limited showing of the motion picture. Yes... two weeks only!

"Michael Jackson's This Is It" includes rare behind-the-scenes video as he developed, created, and rehearsed for his supposedly come back concerts that would have taken place in London's O2 Arena this coming summer. The film is taken from the more than one hundred hours footage from Michael Jackson's rehearsals of his songs for the concert. The film is directed by long-time collaborator Kenny Ortega.

      I have to say that I did not like that song but the idea of remembering Michael is great (he had his faults but 'Thriller' was absolutely thrilling).
