MJ's 'Moonwalker' -- U.S. Movie Debut Imminent

1/20/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Moonwalker" -- a collection of short films made by MJ in 1988 -- was never released theatrically in the United States ... but one L.A. movie theater is finally trying to make it happen ... for one night only.

TMZ has learned ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood is on the hunt for a film print of the 1988 cult classic ... after MJ fans flooded the A.C. Facebook page with the challenging request.

According to reports, "Moonwalker" was never theatrically released in America because of failed negotiations with U.S. movie distributors back in the day ... however the flick was eventually released in The States on VHS.

FYI -- "Moonwalker" featured a super-iconic 25-minute featurette for "Smooth Criminal" ... which included an awesome cameo by Joe Pesci.

ArcLight claims they're actively searching for the print -- we'll let you know if the search succeeds.

Simply because of how Murray is paraded and charaded around I will not buy any of MJ's products. The ruthless blood suckers pulling the strings behind the scene of this case can only hear the disgust from the fans when the cash registers are not ringing. I will not help Murray and the people who are protecting him fatten their wallets from Michael's murder.

Hi Ladies! Alice mentioned that she heard a song from Michael on youtube called "An Angel Came To Me". Just found it and listened to it - it will make you want to cry! Here is the link for those of you interested in listening to it:

The Rich Afterlife Of Michael Jackson
Zack O'Malley Greenburg, 10.25.10, 03:00 PM EDT
Smart deals by his estate have the King of Pop set to be one of the top earners in music for years to come.

Over the past year Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Madonna and Jay-Z each each earned more than $50 million. But Michael Jackson earned more than all four--combined.

Fueled by a bonanza of interest following Jackson's death, his estate raked in $275 million over the past 12 months, by our estimates. That's more than enough to earn the King of Pop the top spot on our annual Dead Celebs list; in fact, it's more than the rest of the artists on the list put together, and more than any living artist or group

(CNN) -- The votes are in and Michael Jackson is your number one global music icon.

Almost 100,000 of you voted to tell us that the self-styled "King of Pop," who died suddenly in June 2009, is the musician you rate above all others.
