MJ's 'Moonwalker' -- U.S. Movie Debut Imminent

MJ's 'Moonwalker' -- U.S. Movie Debut Imminent
4 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

"Moonwalker" -- a collection of short films made by MJ in 1988 -- was never released theatrically in the United States ... but one L.A. movie theater is finally trying to make it happen ... for one night only.



TMZ has learned Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood is on the hunt for a film print of the 1988 cult classic ... after MJ fans flooded the A.C. Facebook page with the challenging request.

According to reports, "Moonwalker" was never theatrically released in America because of failed negotiations with U.S. movie distributors back in the day ... however the flick was eventually released in The States on VHS.

FYI -- "Moonwalker" featured a super-iconic 25-minute featurette for "Smooth Criminal" ... which included an awesome cameo by Joe Pesci.

Arclight claims they're actively searching for the print -- we'll let you know if the search succeeds.

Yes, they should! I watched at the cinema with my sister when it first premiered (must have been 1988 I think). Would be fantastic to do it again. So much more fun than dvd..
And everyone should watch this amazing universe created!  :D

 :D  :shock:  8-)  :lol:

A movie like no other must reffer - from a hoaxy point of view - to Thriller II.... is there a hidden message behind this article? A believer would certainly say yes.....

Moonwalker is good but I am not sure it deserves such a presentation like "a movie like no other"......

I like the "imminent"

Hmmm, maybe it's to get us thinking about the Dome Project? lol


ArcLight Cinemas and the Cinerama Dome.

Michael Jackson's 'Dome Project'
June 29, 2009 | Michael Jackson
 

Two weeks before his death, Michael Jackson finished filming a hush-hush video shoot -- and it is likely the last video project overseen by Jackson.

According to AP, the video -- dubbed the "Dome Project" -- and its existence have been confirmed by sources that could not be identified because of confidentiality agreements.

Four sets were reportedly constructed for the video shoot, including a cemetery similar to the one used in Jackson's "Thriller" video.

The project, produced by Robb Wagner, is expected to be completed July 15.
