Michael Jackson's Thriller to moonwalk into IMAX for a limited time event

Before we get to the news, I'd like to wish the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, a happy belated birthday. The late Gloved One would have turned 60 this past Wednesday, which explains why I've been blasting his music in my office all week long. As part of their effort to celebrate the pop sensation's legacy, Michael Jackson's estate and IMAX are partnering to unleash a digitally remastered version of MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER 3D into IMAX 3D theaters. The new version of the iconic John Landis-directed music video will play in IMAX locations throughout the U.S. for one week, beginning September 21, ahead of THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS screenings.

MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER, which premiered in Los Angeles in 1983, is considered by many to be MJ's most elaborate and sought after music video. In the 14-minute short film, Jackson presents a classic werewolf horror scenario that quickly turns into a zombie dance off. Not only is "Thriller" one of the grooviest tunes to ever play during the Halloween season, the video also features some truly inspired zombie makeup motifs.

As for THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS, this upcoming comedic family fantasy hails from director Eli Roth (CABIN FEVER, HOSTEL), and stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett and Lorenza Izzo. The film tells the story of a young orphan named Lewis Barnavelt who aids his magical uncle in locating a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world.

Both MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER and THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS will screen together in IMAX theaters beginning on September 21st.
