MJ 'Moonwalker' Screening No-Go

1/20/2011 2:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Another crushing blow to Michael Jackson fans ... TMZ has learned the MJ estate has blocked an L.A. movie company from finally screening "Moonwalker" in an American theater.

Michael Jackson Moonwalker

The ArcLight theater had been on the hunt for a film print of the 1988 cult-classic ... but was having trouble because the film was never officially released in theaters in the U.S.

Now, ArcLight explains ... "We have bad news. It's not available" ... adding, "We contacted the films directors and producers and were finally directed to MJ's estate attorney. They let us know the estate has the rights, but 'have no plans to make... prints available for rent at this time.'"

However, the estate didn't slam the door on the idea of releasing it in the future ... so keep your fingers crossed.

sad the way everyone is fighting over who can exploit MJ the most. It's all about who is getting the lion's share of the money.

Is it any wonder that Moonwalker will not be released in the U.S.? M.J. did not perform in the U.S. because he felt he would be disrespected (This Is It was going to be in LONDON, not the U.S.). We will be lucky to get anything of M.J.'s released here in the U.S. without having to pay an arm-and-a-leg for it. Still, M.J.'s death has everyone looking at MJ in a different way. Now that MJ is not around to freak us out (MJ was his own worse enemy), we can get into his superb artistry and genius. Love.

YES he was a musical genius...BUT...he was a DRUG ADDICT & a CHILD MOLESTER...take BACK all the music and give those innocent victims their lives (PRE-MJ) back!!! Would be a FINE TRADE...since it can't be done....GOOD RIDDANCE TO CHILD MOLESTING RUBBISH...
anyone know where to donate to Conrad Murray Defense fund!!!!!!?
P.S. MJ was not ONLY his worst enemy...he was ALSO the enemy of A LOT of innocent children...


Farrah Fawcett died and stood before God...he told her since you were a decent person i'll give you 1 wish. She said"God I want all the children to be SAFE!!!"He said ok...that night HE KILLED Micheal Jackson
