"This Is It" premieres

Michael Jackson's posthumous live film, "This Is It", will get a simultaneous premiere in 15 cities across the world next month.

The concert movie has been stitched together from hours and hours of footage shot before the pop icon died in June.

These will kick-off in Los Angeles on October 27, followed a matter of hours later by synchronised events in London, New York, Rio De Janeiro, Berlin, Johannesburg and Seoul.

Red carpet arrivals from the Los Angeles event will be broadcast by satellite to those cities, before the film goes out in Moscow, Tokyo, Sydney and Paris, amongst others.

AEG Live, who were promoting Jackson's ill-fated, 50-date "This Is It" live comeback in London, struck a $60 million deal with Sony Pictures for the footage.
