Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' Sells Out Worldwide

The King of Pop is still alive--through his fans. Michael Jackson's forthcoming tour documentary This Is It has sold out worldwide!

Over 1,600 screenings have sold out around the world, two weeks ahead of its release, and experts predict it will bring in nearly $250,000 million dollars.

The film is set to open on October 28th for two weeks only in Los Angeles, London, New York and Berlin, Germany.

The movie has already sold out more than 1,000 showtimes on Fandango alone. It's currently the top-selling film on Fandango, representing 27% of weekly ticket sales on the site.

"Advance tickets for This Is It are selling at an extraordinary pace,” says Rick Butler, Chief Operating Officer for Fandango. “Theater owners are posting additional showtimes on multiple screens to meet the demand.

"At this point in the film’s sales cycle, This Is It is outpacing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Star Trek as one of our top pre-sellers of the year.”
