CinemaCon surprise: Poignant first look at Michael Jackson biopic released | Hollywood

Las Vegas’ CinemaCon 2024 halls just reverberated with poignant applause. Bringing the Lionsgate CinemaCon finale to its emotional close, producer Graham King showed off the first-ever trailer of the Michael movie. Set to hit theatres on April 18, 2025, Antoine Fuqua is directing the film.

Released exclusively for the in-person audience in attendance at the CinemaCon this year, the footage breathed back Jackson’s charismatic magic to life on the screen. The trailer opens to the resounding echo of fans cheering on their favourite. Per Deadline, the video jumps back to Jackson as a young boy, being told by his mother, “There might be some people who think you’re different, and that’s going to make life a little harder for you, but you never were like anyone else.”

A following voice-over captures what performing meant to Jackson, who described it as pure “magic.”

The Hollywood Reporter also revealed that the King’s project will include over 30 songs and may be deemed “long” as long as it encompasses the King of Pop’s music story. 

The film’s producer also addressed Jackson’s several scandals. He announced, “behind the unrelenting scrutiny” and the blinding spotlight, the Thriller hitmaker was “simply a man, “who lived a very complicated life.”

The Man in the Mirror’s real-life nephew, Jaafar Jackson, plays the eponymous magnetic star. The feature also stars Colman Domingo as Joe Jackson and Miles Teller as manager John Branca.
