MJ Estate Shuts Down 'Moonwalker' Screening

MJ Estate Shuts Down 'Moonwalker' Screening

22 minutes ago by TMZ Staff  

Another crushing blow to Michael Jackson fans ... TMZ has learned the MJ estate has blocked an L.A. movie company from finally screening "Moonwalker" in an American theater.



The ArcLight theater had been on the hunt for a film print of the 1988 cult-classic ... but was having trouble because the film was never officially released in theaters in the U.S.

Now, ArcLight explains ... "We have bad news. It's not available" ... adding, "We contacted the films directors and producers and were finally directed to MJ's estate attorney. They let us know the estate has the rights, but 'have no plans to make... prints available for rent at this time.'"

However, the estate didn't slam the door on the idea of releasing it in the future ... so keep your fingers crossed.

My 1st thought is again the striking controversy in the news. "Moonwalker" in the cinema's and then the news "Moonwalker" screening denied. Controversial news attracts attention and expectation? A marketing trick? Yes.. I think so ;)

The title of Moonwalker DVD is "Enter The Realm Of Moonwalker" "One Giant Leap Into The Future Of Home Video".
Did TMZ change the title "From The Imagination Of Michael Jackson Comes A Movie Like No Other"? Or has it already been made and ready? I'd think the latter (the wiki page was modified on 18 January 2011  8-) )

it seems this is the line from the original movie trailer but of course I am not able to verify this how it was back years ago  :?

Hello,
I found this article from the National Journal Of truth by Charles J. Willington. He claims that Michael Jackson died in 1984 and a man name of Frank Jespin took his place. Here's an article about why Moonwalker was shutdown.  I can't believe this man. I remember he made claims on the old site about this.
