Michael Jackson Movie May Not Have Advance Screenings
By: Roger Friedman // Wednesday October 7, 2009


The film about Michael Jackson’s tour rehearsals, “This Is It,” is being kept fairly secret right up until its opening.

“This Is It” is set to open on Wednesday, October 28th, released into theaters for two weeks by Sony. But so far no advance screenings have been scheduled other than one for the cast and crew, in Los Angeles, on Monday the 26th. The location is being kept hush-hush, too.

One screening for the Jackson family was cancelled, I am told, when Michael’s brother Randy insisted on bringing a guest. Sony said no, and the screening proceeded without any family members.

Many showings of “This Is It” have already sold out in advance. Sony is readying a CD soundtrack which will be released the same week, to capitalize on the film’s popularity.

A source who’s been working on “This Is It” told me yesterday: “The tragedy is, the film is great. The public is finally going to appreciate Michael Jackson, and it’s too late.”

Meantime, the book of Michael Jackson taped interviews, by Shmuley Boteach, has not been much of a hit. It’s listed around number 332 on amazon.com. The average customer review is 2 out of 5 stars.

Two questions:
1- Why is Sony being so hush hush?
Advance screenings are common especially for movie critics who provide reviews and make them available when films open.
2- Who was Randy's guest?
Whoever the mystery person is, Sony did not want that person present for the advance screening so then all Jacksons apparently decided not to attend.

No.

Advance screenings are those reserved for promotion purposes. They are usually done for the cast, industry insiders, movie critics, special groups etc.

The midnight showings are still scheduled. You will still be able to attend the midnight show.
