The limited two-week theater run of "Michael Jackson's This Is It" film guaranteed that tickets would be in high demand, and sure enough, all 3,000 tickets for Los Angeles advance screenings of the music documentary sold out within two hours early Sunday, according to AP reports.
The screening will take place the night prior to the October 28 nationwide release at the new Regal Cinemas Stadium 14 in Los Angeles.
The film follows Jackson as he rehearsed and prepared for a 50-date run of London concerts, which were scheduled to begin just weeks after his death on June 25. The film, which was directed by Kenny Ortega, will feature behind-the-scenes footage as well as Jackson and his band and dancers rehearsing for the tour.
Last week, it was confirmed that a two-disk album featuring a new song, "This Is It," will be released on October 27 to coincide with the movie's theatrical release. The new single will be released on October 12.
