Michael Jackson‘s ‘This Is It’ documentary film has been confirmed to be released globally on October 28 (although the first screening officially gets underway on October 27 in Los Angeles due to the time difference).

The London premiere will take place at 1am (BST) on October 28 at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square. It will be screened at the same time as the Los Angeles premiere (taking place at 6pm local time on October 27).

Following the premiere, UK audiences will be able to see the film on October 28 for a limited two-week run.

Tickets for the film go on sale worldwide on September 27, with UK audiences able to buy tickets at cinemas nationwide from 12.01am.

The first public screenings of ‘This Is It’ will also be coordinated, with the debut Los Angeles showing set for 9pm, the first in New York at midnight and the first in London at 4am.
