Michael Jackson’s This Is It is the NUMBER ONE Concert Film of ALL Time

"THIS IS IT", which ended its highly successful
run in most territories on Tuesday December 2nd, has earned $180.0 million
internationally (more than $250 million worldwide), making it the most
successful concert film of all time.


Partly due to it’s success, for the first time in Sony history, Sony Pictures Releasing International will pass $2 billion at the
box office this coming weekend, powering Sony Pictures Entertainment to
its best-ever box office year worldwide, it was announced today by Jeff
Blake, chairman of Sony Pictures Worldwide Marketing & Distribution.

2009 marks
just the fifth time in motion picture history that any studio will have
passed the $2 billion milestone internationally, following Paramount in
2008, Warner Bros. in 2007 and 2004, and 20th Century Fox in 2006.

Sony (Columbia) Pictures paid $60 million for the rights to produce the Michael Jackson film.

"This Is It" will be released on DVD & Blu-ray in late January.  Pre-order your copy at Amazon.com.
