Jackson's "This is it" immediately popular worldwide

People line up and prepare to stay overnight at L.A. Live for the opportunity to purchase tickets for special showings of the "Michael Jackson's This Is It" movie in Los Angeles, California, September 25, 2009.

Thousands of fans and celebrities made their way to theaters across the world for the premiere of Michael Jackson's documentary film "This is it" Wednesday.

The star's brothers, Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Randy, were at the Los Angeles screening.

The film was culled from about 100 hours of rehearsal footage that was shot for his comeback series of 50 London concerts in July.

Those videos from the rehearsals had been intended to help the star and his creative team assess the show and was never intended for public consumption. But show director Kenny Ortega was persuaded to cultivate it into a documentary after the death of the King of Pop.

The film was widely appreciated. Elizabeth Taylor, Jackson's long-time friend issued her opinion about the film via Twitter, calling it "the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen."Jackson's former manager Frank DiLeo said that he had "seen the movie three times and it's been emotional at every screening."

And Ortega called the film "the last sacred document of our leader and friend."

Jackson died suddenly on June 25 in Los Angeles, just two weeks away from the opening night of his comeback show.

After his death, concert promoter AEG Live, which bankrolled the London concerts, struck a 60 million U.S. dollar deal with Sony Corp.'s Columbia Pictures movie studio to use the videotapes and make the film.
