Hot off the wire! It looks like Hong Kong might be one of the first territories to see the Michael Jackson movie This Is It. A California judge has approved the release of all interviews and film of the backstage rehearsals at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles that were preparation for Jackson's comeback concerts, which would have been held in London if not for his untimely death in June. Now that the legal wrangling (over money, of course) between Sony, concert promoters AEG Live and the Jackson clan is resolved, a worldwide film release is planned for October 30. Hong Kong is scheduled to join the markets that will see the picture first, although local distributor Edko concedes it might be held up until November. The footage - shot in high definition with state-of-the-art digital sound - will also have certain sequences in 3D. Sony said the still unfinished film 'will offer Jackson fans and music lovers worldwide a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the performer, his career and the stage spectacular that would have been'. However, the contract states that the film cannot include any footage that shows the star in a bad light. So, one thing the film won't be is real.
