Michael Fans Boycott

Hardcore Michael Jackson fans are boycotting Michael's movie "This Is It" because they feel like it isn't a true depiction of Michael's final days.

Thousands of his fans have formed a group called 'This Is Not It', to protest against the movie, which opens in theatres on October 28.

A statement on the group's website reads: "The true state of Michael Jackson’s failing health was being hidden from you by those who are making a profit from the screening of the 'This Is It' movie.

"The movie is made of a careful choice of footage taken during Michael Jackson’s last rehearsals. Out of 110 hours of footage, a few scenes were selected in which Michael Jackson smiled, in spite of being in a dire state.

"The promoters for ‘This Is It’, ignored the signs, ignored the pleas, and in fact, actively covered up the truth. What you will see on that screen is part of that cover up."

If people do decide to see the film, the 'This Is Not It' urges them to "see it with different eyes".

Meanwhile, Michael's good friend Elizabeth Taylor watched the movie in an advanced screening and was very impressed.

She Tweeted: "It is the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen."

Adding, "I wept from pure joy at his God given gift. There will never, ever be the likes of him again."

Will you be watching the movie?
