Will Smith, Paula Abdul, Paris Hilton and Other Stars Attend Michael Jackson’s This Is It Premiere
Stars and fans around the world are gathered today, October 28th, to watch a movie by a late superstar, Michael Jackson’s This Is It.
Famous faces and names were seen at the red carpet of Nokia Theater in Los Angeles for the movie premiere, such as Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul, Neil Patrick Harris, Motown Records founder Berry Gordy Jr. and Paris Hilton. Singers like David Cook, Adam Lambert and Katy Perry are also excited to see the movie.
Not only that, couple Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy, also former High School Musical star, Ashley Tisdale, all coming to the event wearing Michael Jackson shirts. Most importantly, four of Jackson’s brothers — Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie — attended.
Will Smith’s partner in Bad Boys, Martin Lawrence, brought his two daughters. While model/actor Tyrese brought his little one, as he wrote on his Twitter pagge, “at the premier for ‘This is it’ I brought my 2 year old daughter… She’s dancing in my lap.. I just teared up.. MJ still brings joy.”
Former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul, also tweeted following the event, “I’m sitting in the nokia theater in awe of the ‘this is it’ movie! So many emotions are coming up For me I can’t believe He’s gone. Brilliant.” More tweets are coming, like the ones from David Cook, “MJ doing what he did best…. Incredible.”
This Is It has become the biggest cinematic blowout ever for a music film as it opened for paying customers immediately after the premieres, with evening and midnight screenings in North America to middle-of-the-night and morning showings in Europe, Asia and elsewhere. Distributor Sony, which paid $60 million for the film rights, opened the movie in 99 countries, and will expand to 110 territories this weekend.
Michael’s brother, Jermaine Jackson said about the movie, “It’s showing what a perfectionist he was.” Performances in the film included a medley of Jackson 5 hits the singer originally performed with his siblings. Michael Bearden, musical director and associate producer of This Is It, said making the film was the most bittersweet project of his career, but he was happy “the world will see ( Jackson’s) triumph. I know he would have liked it.” Bearden also added, “We considered Michael in every aspect of the movie. We were with him every day for the last three or four months of his life at least, so we know he would have liked what we did.”
This is it, you will always in our hearts, Michael.
