Michael Jackson’s This Is It Premiere

A who’s who of Hollywood stars, as well a few who’s that, all showed up for the New York and Los Angeles premieres of Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” film. Tracking estimates for the new film vary widely but early predictions have the movie taking in anywhere from 36 million to 62 million in the first five days of release. Whether the film will open at #1 is obviously still up in the air. However, the soundtrack to the album will definitely debut at the top of the album chart next week. Early projections suggest the “This Is It” soundtrack will sell between 300,000 and 350,000.

Jackson already owns the year’s best-selling album with his 2004 hits package “Number Ones” — 2 million and counting. Additionally, his 1983 blockbuster “Thriller” is the year’s 11th best-seller (1.1 million) and 2005’s “The Essential Michael Jackson” is the 15th biggest (986,000).

“Thriller” marked his first No. 1. The follow-ups, “Bad,” “Dangerous,” “HIStory” and “Invincible,” also hit the top.

The “This Is It” album contains 14 studio recordings of Jackson’s hits like “Billie Jean” and “Beat It” and two versions of the from-the-vaults title track, which plays over the film’s end credits. It also includes three demo recordings and a spoken word poem titled “Planet Earth.”

    The Film was GREAT!!!

    Can’t wait for the dvd and bonuses, I’m sure it’s going to be a great keepsake!

    Michael was extraORDINARY!!!

    Michael proves you can’t judge a book by its cover, regardless of allegations, which I never believed, he did have a purity of heart, his essence shined through, nothing that can be spinned or manufactured, but what is authentic we deeply feel! He was delusional in believing the world wouldn’t judge him unfairly from his appearance and relationship with kids, which was improper, sleeping with other people’s kids is just wrong, even though, I don’t think he was a child molester (they would be out now for sure, for a share of his estate and even during the trial). But fame and money does that to people, delusional and sometimes out of touch. But, through all of that, seeing the film makes me more patient and loving and the desire to be better at what I do! I left the theater so inspired and grateful for Michael and legacy he left behind!

    Thanks Michael!!!

    His incredible music and talent will be unmatched for a very long time to come, other than other legends like Prince, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, artists who created music for generations to come!
