Michael Jackson's This Is It Set to Become Biggest Concert Film Ever

October 15, 2009

Advance sales for Michael Jackson’s upcoming concert feature This Is It are through the roof, and it's looking like it just might set the record for the highest grossing concert film of all time.

Two weeks ahead of its opening, MJ’s This Is It has already generated more than 1,600 sold out U.S. show times and is the top seller this week at online ticket outlets Fandango and Movietickets.

The top spot for the highest grossing concert feature is currently held by last year's craptacular Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, which grossed $70 million despite only playing in just a couple hundred theaters. Sony Pictures are planning on putting This Is It on over 3,500 screens in North America alone, with a total of 8,500 prints circulated to 75 countries.

Hot damn.
