Michael Jackson’s concert were stage shows that offered spectacular choreography on the kind of scale even Cecille B. DeMille would have dismissed as ‘outlandish’. The man may be gone but, thanks to new concert film This Is It, he’ll be back on screens for one final appearance.

Cut from footage shot during Jackson’s rehearsals for this year’s planned tour, This Is It gives one more chance to see the man-with-the-glove in action. Click here for a look at the official trailer, courtesy of BBC News.

This Is It is directed by Jackson’s long-time creative partner (and High School Musical director) Kenny Ortega, who describes the project as “a gift to Michael’s fans” and promises it’ll show Michael “as one of the greatest entertainers in the world.”

This Is It is released in the UK on October 28 for a limited, two-week run.
