Good news for Bad fans.
Spike Lee has this Michael Jackson documentary you specifically cancelled all your Thanksgiving plans with your fam to watch, but guess what? That MJ piece of celluloid is hitting an LA and New York silver screen near you before it airs on ABC on Thanksgiving Day.
Bad25 chronicles the behind-the-scenes making of the Michael album of the same name along with the accompanying world tour which was the King of Pop’s first as a solo artist.
It has everything die hard fans crave: rare and never-before-seen footage, first hand memories from those close to the star and collaborated on the records like director Martin Scorsese who was the man/eyebrows behind the lens for the Bad video.
The film has played at international film festivals like Venice and Toronto and coincides with the re-release of Bad which features remastered versions of the original tracklisting and a second multimedia disc that boasts unreleased bonus tracks like “Al Capone” (the raw demo to “Smooth Criminal”).
There’s also a DVD of the July 16, 1988 sold-out Wembley Stadium show from the Bad World Tour and the first live CD from the same concert so you can relive the magic anywhere.
It’s a very limited engagement—one week only—in the sister cities starting October 19. In New York, Bad25 will be at the AMC Loews Theater on 66 Third Ave; in LA, Chinese 6 Theaters at 6801 Hollywood Blvd.
