A new documentary, Michael Jackson's This Is It, will make its global debut in theatres on October 28. MTV premiered the official movie trailer Monday during its 2009 Video Music Awards.

"His music reaches billions. His dreams inspired the world. But there was still one dream he wanted to share with everyone," the trailer announced.

The two minute, 34 second trailer made the offer to "witness the never before seen rehearsal footage" of Jackson's London tour.

Kenny Ortege, the creative director of Michael Jackson Memorial and close friend of Jackson, directed the fi lm. According to Ortege, the new documentary is Michael's gift to his fans.

The movie will only be in cinemas for two weeks. Tickets will go on sale September 27. Sony Pictures has posted the movie's worldwide release dates on its website with China listed as October 30.

However the spokesman of China Film Group Corporation Weng Li said the fi lm's debut date in China has not been confirmed.

According to Sony Pictures, the movie is "drawn from more than 100 hours of behind-thescenes footage" showing Jackson preparing for his London shows.

Jackson's fans are currently busy uploading photos to the website www.thisisit-fans.com. Sony Pictures has invited everyone to participate in a collage of photos by fans from all over the world up until September 30.
