Advance tickets to Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' film in Los Angeles have sold out two hours after going on sale.

Fans queued for three days to make sure they were able to get one of 3,000 tickets to see the film, reports BBC News. The film, which features footage of Jackson preparing for his London O2 Arena gigs before his death in June, is due to have 25 premieres across the world, with many taking place simultaneously at the end of October.

The Los Angeles premiere takes place at 6pm local time on October 27, with the debut London showing taking place at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square at 1am (BST) on October 28.

Following the premiere, audiences will be able to see the film for a limited two-week run.

'High School Musical' director Kenny Ortega has compiled the film from 100 hours of unreleased footage of Jackson rehearsing for the tour, which would have seen him play 50 nights at the London venue.
