Michael Jackson Movie 'This Is It' Makes A Staggering $20 Million In 1st Day Sales,Could Be Nominated For An Oscar

MTV UK Reports

Michael Jackson’s posthumous film This Is It has made a staggering $20.1 million world-wide on its first day of release.

The documentary, which follows MJ throughout the rehearsals of his ill-fated comeback tour, has also made around £1.2 million in the UK alone since its premiere on Tuesday night.

Steve Elzer from Sony Pictures has stated that the movie is a: "reaffirmation of the global appeal of Michael Jackson".

He also revealed the studio will submit the movie to the Academy Awards so it can be considered for the best picture category.

Director Kenny Ortega supported Elzer’s statement claiming Jacko’s last project ‘deserves’ to win an Oscar.

Meanwhile, the King of Pop’s father Joe Jackson has stated the legend is now worth more in death than when he was alive.

The Billie Jean singer, who died at the age of 50 in June, has entered the top five of Forbes magazine’s Top-Earning Dead Celebrities list.

Mr. Jackson told US show Extra: "He's worth more dead than when he was alive, but I'd rather have him alive,"

MJ’s father added: "I get emotional when I'm off to myself and I start thinking about things that we went through.”

It seems even in death, there is still controversy surrounding the singer as an alleged picture of Michael Jackson’s body during his autopsy is rumoured to have been ‘offered’ to the press.
