MICHAEL JACKSON

The Michael Jackson movie This Is It - based on footage from concert rehearsals before his death in June - will have simultaneous premieres in more than 15 cities around the world in October, the studio behind the film said on Monday.

This Is It opens to the general public on October 28 for a limited two-week run. While Hollywood movies often have several premieres around the world, they rarely happen at the same time. But for This Is It, more than 15 cities, including New York, Rio de Janeiro, London, Berlin and Seoul will host simultaneously premieres with a red carpet event in Los Angeles on October 27, said Sony Pictures, which paid $60m for rights to the rehearsal footage. Names of the other premiere-night cities were not released.
