October 28th. That’s the day we find out if Michael Jackson’s death can become a cash register for the Jackson family. Actually, with Sony paying a reported $50 million to AEG for the rights to the rehearsal footage for “This Is It”, Michael has already proved he can bring in the cash. But a studio paying for the rights is a lot different than normal folks paying to see the footage in a movie theater. Because while a lot of people are happy to watch the drama unfold on CNN, paying for it is a lot different. I think it’s going to come down to the reviews. If there really is something to see, it’s probably going to make some money. But will it make back the $50 million? We’ll all know October 28th. Anyway, the first poster and two images have been released. They’re after the jump.
The poster for “This Is It” comes from Yahoo Movies.
