This Is It DVD Pushed Back to January
Sorry Michael Jackson fans! You’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer to see This Is It again. The DVD of the film has reportedly just been pushed back.

This Is It was originally scheduled to come out in time for the holidays, but Sony announced today that they’re bumping the release back to January 26th.

The reason for the bump is because theater owners started worrying that releasing the DVD so soon would cut into their ticket sales. As you may recall, the film was originally only supposed to run for two weeks in theaters. However, due to an overwhelming response, the run time got extended. It’s grossed over $200 million worldwide.

Now This Is It will be released on January 26th, just days before the Grammy Awards on January 31st. The DVD and Blu-ray will feature several mini documentaries on the preparation for what would have been Jackson's comeback concerts, including the auditions for backup dancers, the costuming process and director Kenny Ortega's personal memories of working with Jackson. The Blu-ray will have two brand-new music videos for "Thriller" and "Smooth Criminal," culled from the rehearsal footage.
