Love him or hate him, Michael Jackson is popular even in death. His film This Is It, grossed over $7 million in its first day out in theaters. It grossed $12.7 million globally, with the highest numbers coming in from the United Kingdom, France, and Japan.
The film is expected to win this weekend’s box office, and maybe even beat out the February 2008 concert film Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, which grossed $31 million its opening weekend.
Experts think This Is It will make $40 million domestically in its first five days! That’s a lot of pressure! Will you be skipping trick-or-treating to see footage of Michael’s last days?
