Here is the first trailer for director Spike Lee’s documentary Bad 25 which focuses on the making of Michael Jackson’s album Bad.  The trailer looks interesting enough as it looks like it’s going to cover each song on the album and the impact it had around the world.  There will be never before seen behind-the-scenes footage of Jackson at work too which is always fascinating.

Bad 25 will air on ABC on Thanksgiving night, watch the trailer below:

Michael Jackson’s Estate Won’t Stop ‘Til They Get Enough, Shopping Biopic

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

It was only a matter of time I suppose; a feature film biopic based on the life of Michael Jackson is going to happen, eventually.  There is definitely a lot of material there, what an interesting life that man lived.  His estate is currently shopping around the rights to Jackson’s story, Variety reports that the executor of the estate John Branca has already approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of producing and financing the biopic.

It was revealed that the project would “only cover certain periods of the late singer’s life”; so don’t expect to see much of his controversial moments in there.  This could be something for the fans, focusing on his rise to fame, music, and charitable accomplishments.

If you want to see an interesting version of his life, do as I did and watch 1992′s The Jacksons: An American Dream.

2009 might go down as one of the most surprising year for deaths in the celebrity world; maybe none greater than the King of Pop Michael JacksonSpike Lee has directed a music video for the title song from Jackson’s critically acclaimed documentary THIS IS IT.  The video features scenes from Jackson’s hometown of Gary, Indiana, edited together with photos and footage taken throughout Michael’s career.

I don’t think I am the only one who think this is definitely not it.

It's very short notice. There's my pussy to consider.

"It's very short notice. There's my pussy to consider."

What a perverted old woman.  Thanks to my parents TV programming I was forced to watch Are You Being Served for a good part of my life.  It was actually very funny at times thanks to this lady and her double entendres.  Mrs. Slocombe has two main gags: first off, as a cat lover, she consistently talks about Tiddles, her bundle of fluff, but this causes quite a few problems in that Betty insists on referring to her cat as her pussy.   Played by actress Mollie Sugden (sadly passed away this year), her mannerisms, facial expressions, and her accent which shifts from upper-class to Scouse at random, all make Mrs. Slocombe one of the most ludicrously funny characters on television.  Best of after the jump.

After the death of Michael Jackson I did what any normal fan would do, play some music.  Never have I appreciated the song from Free Willy so much.  They finally buried the poor bastard this past weekend but the news apparently never heard of “rest in peace” before.  Well at least Hollywood will give it time.  Oh wait.

Michael Jackson’s This Is It is a movie hitting theaters on October 28th.  So far all I have heard is that the film will be a bunch of rehearsal footage.  Well I doubt that because rehearsals usually sound like ass.  So it will have to be dubbed over.  And I am sure many celebrities who want to express their love for the man they didn’t talk to for the past decade will also want some screen time.  OK I’m done being angry.  Poster after the jump.

Reuters says it all about humanity: Coroner completes Jackson autopsy, film deal set.

Sony has secured the rights to release This Is It, a film using footage of Michael Jackson’s rehearsals for his tour which will be presented in HD, with some sequences in 3D, when it hits theaters Oct. 30. The film is being directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical movies).  The studio said the film will be drawn from hundreds of hours of rehearsal and behind-the-scenes footage — most of which was shot in June at Staples Center in Los Angeles and the Forum in Inglewood — as well as interviews with friends and collaborators of the late performer, who died on June 25.

RIP: Michael Jackson

1958-2009

I has been reported that Michael Jackson has died. He was 50.  Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II.

I don’t really know what to say to report any more on this, obviously it’s not film related although the man did appear in plenty of films and soundtracks.  You think of pop music and the first person is usually Michael Jackson, something tells me that will never change.  Most people reading this must have a MJ CD, DVD or even tape they can get going, let’s play him out.
