Yes, you're right. Some people think that crying means that you believe he is gone. Not necessarily. Even though I believe in my heart that he is still with us, it still hurts. We all have emotions and we do our best to hide them but I don't think I'll be able to tomorrow. Like I have always told my friend, when the day comes that they announce Michael's death was a hoax, I will literally drop to my knees sobbing. I am dead serious. They will be tears of joy of course. That will be one of the happiest days of my life.
Thank you Banessa. <3

And Gm, you're welcome and thank you. You've brightened my day. We really must stick together. We are all connected through Michael and together we are strong and nothing can stop us. We are his beautiful army of LOVE. <3

God bless both of you. Take care and we'll talk soon. <3

I dream about the day the truth will surface!!! I will yell a happy yell as loud as I can...even if I scare my enighbors...then I will dance, hug everybody, call everybody and share my happiness alla round..and say I TOLD YOU SO!!! hahaha!!!

I'm already crying reading this thread about people crying..I feel so united with you guys through our emotions.....imagine how I'll react in the theater!! Smile))

I'm having a surreal day in general.

I had a dream about TII last night, and at the end just before the credits started rolling it came up with the caption "to be continued". I have never been a believer in the movie theory so I have no idea why I dreamt this and I woke up feeling unsettled.

It dawned on me that tomorrow/tonight for some lucky people, we are going to see Michael on the big screen once again. Whether or not the movie will contain any clues, IMO it will still be a big shock to the system. We have all watched countless old YouTube videos but this is new footage. One way or another it was made after the "death" so it is like Michael coming back from the dead.

I almost don't want to go and see it because I have a weird feeling and I feel sick. I'm not been a baby or anything and you guys all know me by now, by my gut is telling me something is off.

@ Rach

Something is off... but what do you think it is? Sometimes I wonder if the movie is sham, but I doubt it because Elizabeth Taylor was so supportive of it.

What do you think it is Rach? I said eralier I was really afraid of maybe just how I am going to react or feel. I mentioned it may be like memorial we never had-like a closure that I DONT want to feel. I started searching things at first b/c I had the strong feeling that we were not getting the truth about anything by any stretch of the imagination. So when I say "closure" know that I don't mean that everything will be open/shut for me. I just don't wanna feel like I felt in the week following the Memorial Service. I don't want to say goodbye all over agin you know? ( see my inspired writings on Just Sharing Some Thoughts post). I am excited and already sad at the same time. It may be nothing more then that protesters to SONY/AEG are gonna conflict witht he fans that are going to celebrate.

I´m actully just kinda nervous, don´t know why. But you´ve definitely put some thoughts in my head Rach. Could be why I feel the nervosity: this is the closest we´ll ever come to see him up close (again for you who´ve seen him in concerts) and it´s for the last time.

I'm really nervous about it, I don't know what to expect and what's worse is i'm going with 4 non-believers so i'll have no one to talk to about it 'til I come on here. I have no idea what to expect but if what Liz Taylor said is anything to go by it will be alot more than just rehearsal footage. Usually rehearsal footage is just that footage and brilliant to see so I don't know how she makes out it should be nominated for every award conceivable, there must be more to TII than the trailer is showing us.

Post by Rach on Tue Oct 27, 2009 1:27 pm

You know why I think I am feeling off guys?

This movie has been so down played. It was billed as the biggest movie of the year but very little was done to promote it. Up until the weekend I didn't see one commerical for it on the tv, or hear about it on the radio. It was almost like it was been kept a secret but so much money has been spent on buying the rights, promoting the song and going to court in order to sell merchandise relating to the movie. It doesn't add up.

Why would Sony buy the rights for $60m, premier the trailer during the VMAs, advertise the trailer for the VMAs (which by the ay I have seen more times then the trailer for TII and I don't even live in the US!), hype the song and the album up so much, announce that tickets would be on sale for a whole month before the movie premiers, announce it was only showing up two weeks and then NOT give it the proper publicity that it deserves? So much has gone into the background of the movie but no promotion? That's so odd.

Over the last few days I have been thinking that the TII concerts were never meant to happen and even that got more publicity. In fact over in the UK a primetime 4 minute commerical was dedicated just to the concerts. Now Michael is supposed to be "dead" and hardly anything has been done to promote it? I can't get my head around it Shocked

Well about the publicity, I mean, remember "Invincible"? Sony doesn´t care, they know MJ has hardcore fans, the biggest bunch in the whole world, and we´ll go to see it anyway. Just a thought.

I agree Rach, something is off big time. Why hasn't the movie been promoted properly.
Alot of people I know only heard about this movie this week and didn't even know what it was about. It's been advertised on entertainment shows this week but not last month. If this is to be the biggest movie of the year or decade or millenium then why not give it the air time to promote it. Sony have payed out alot of money.
Wouldn't it make sense to promote the product you're selling????????

Even though "Invincible" sold ten million copies worldwide, and IMO is the best Michael album, it was considered a flop because it didn't do as well as his previous stuff.

I know Michael didn't need Sony to help promote it but if they had done, it probably would have sold more. It seems to me the whole world grieved on June 25th and has gone Michael crazy ever since but yet this movie still has seats available this close to it opening. SATC was a sell out in the UK when it first opened and it has just as many viewings available as TII.

I don´t know what to think anymore. I am afraid of being disappointed after seeing the movie, and I don´t want this to happen. But I can´t help myself from having some expectations on it..

I agree as well Rach. Up until 4 days ago, I had never seen any TII trailer on UK television whereas I have been watching them on the internet for the last 4 or 5 weeks!!

It doesn't make sense. If Sony/AEG are so keen to get back the money they 'lost' from the concerts, why not promote it more - especially in the UK where the TII concerts were due to take place, hence, probably where the biggest interest would be.

I've got a degree in marketing and none of the marketing (and the lack of) for TII makes any sense!

Just imagine he would be standing in front of you... I would freez because of alle the emotions I would go throu...
Happy because he is alive
Scared that I'm seeing things
Stupid for each moment I thought he had died
Upset to go throu the same things again when he died for real
Blessed to see him
and so on.........
but eventually I would just poke him just to make shure I'm not dreaming LOL

But then again....what if ........and another dissapointment again!!!

I never believed in a comeback if there is a hoax... Dead means gone forever! But sooooo wish I'm wrong!

Two weeks ago I went to cinema and...tadaaa..there was a trailer. But that was the only time I saw it, and I go to cinema quite often. Nor have I seen it on tv or heard on the radio... Only today the news said that TII would start tomorrow. Nothing else.

EXACTLY! AEG were set to lose millions after Michael's "death" because there was speculation that the insurance wouldn't be paid out as the death was initially thought to be an overdose. Now I can't speak for everyone, but I would image that most people would want their money back as opposed to receiving the special ticket that AEG were offering.

If they sold the rights for $60m, they would have to pay about 1/3 of that out of that back to fans and then there were rumours that AEG had also paid Michael in advance for the movie. To me that adds up to pretty much most of the $60m they received from Sony. So are we to believe AEG walked out of this pretty much without a penny? NO WAY!!!

Yeah, that´s what I mean. The record sold anyway, I love it , but MJ himself complained on the lack of PR that Sony had promised him. I´m just thinking, they know it sold 10 million copies, so they said "let´s not waste money on commercial, people will run and see it anyway". Probably also why it´s up only for two weeks, to add more excitement and make people go buy the tickets fast.

The Sony boss in Germany gave an interview, and to the question, why the movie is only running for two weeks, he said it´s to give the movie a character of a concert, which is also only running for a certain amount of time. And as TII was supposed to be a concert, this is why they do it..
To me that is no answer at all, because a concert can also go two months or even longer - so a movie could as well.

Yeah I´m sure he did say that. Their job is to lie. But it´s interesting to read this because I never got why only two weeks.

Somehow..and these are just my thoughts, I guess the movie will reveal absolutely nothing... just rehearsal footage, like they said.

i'm going tonight and i am extremely nervous, yet excited at the same time. i'm still mixed as to whether or not i think there will be "clues" in the movie. but regardless, i am just really anticipating something...but i don't know what. i do know i don't wanna be disappointed, and i'm a little worried i might be. but in general, i'm just anxious and nervous...i have no idea whatsoever to expect.

btw, i'm on karen's fb and her incessant protesting of the movie just makes me all the more curious and anxious!

Defantly.Im supposted to see the movie tonight . I'm very excited. I havn't felt this way about a movie or anything really in a long time. I'm nervious too. I worry about being disappointed to or somethimg. We've been building this thing up in our mind for weeks now. Will there be clues? Will It answer some of our questions? I don't think Michael to come out at the end of the movie and say "I'm alive!!!" or anything earthshattering. I think many of of think there will be some kind of cliffhanger or major clue at the end or something. I don't even know what to look for as far a clues go. A may need to see it more than once if I can.

I'm more than excited! I saw many trailers in our theatres here in Germany..
I was about 4 times in theatres since August....and everytime there were movietrailers
before the main movie..and the last trailer was always for TII!

I'm working in an office...listening to radio during my work...
and from about 7am to 4pm when I'm at work..they talked a lot about the movie.
also about the questions if there are doubles in TII...
then there were some mean comments from one of the radio hosts...
I was kinda angry and tried to ignore it...
I hope he'll get a lesson soon Evil or Very Mad
