'This Is It' rakes in $2.2 million on first night

Posted on

This Is It, the film tribute to Michael Jackson’s career and legacy, earned $2.2 million in sales from Tuesday night’s shows in the U.S. and Canada, according to the LA Times. Sony executives have said that they believe the biggest payoff from their $60 million effort will come from overseas sales. Though international numbers aren’t yet available, the studio predicts the film will earn twice as much abroad as it will domestically.
