ACCLAIMED FILM BY SPIKE LEE PREMIERES ON THE BIG SCREEN FOR EXCLUSIVE ONE WEEK ENGAGEMENTS IN NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES

The Michael Jackson documentary, BAD25, directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Spike Lee recently debuted to rave reviews at both the Venice and Toronto film festivals. Now fans will be treated to a major surprise - the big screen premieres of BAD25 in both Los Angeles and New York theaters for exclusive one-week engagements beginning October 19th, 2012.

“Spike was the only choice for us when we decided to open up the archives and make this documentary. He has done a masterful job taking the audience behind the scenes and revealing how this ‘coming of age’ project was created,” said John Branca and John McClain, Co-Executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson.




BAD25 ON THE BIG SCREEN:

OCT. 19th to 26th
AMC LOEWS THEATER, 66 THIRD AVE, NEW YORK CITY
OCT. 26th to NOV. 2ND
CHINESE 6 THEATERS, 6801 HOLLYWOOD BLVD, HOLLYWOOD, CA

BAD25 chronicles the making of Michael Jackson’s iconic, record-breaking Bad album and Michael’s first world tour as a solo artist. With BAD25, Spike Lee examines Michael Jackson’s creative vision for the album that ended up defining an era. Michael's lasting artistic legacy comes to life thanks to rare and never before seen footage and the vivid recollections of Michael's collaborators and confidants, such as Martin Scorsese who directed the 18-minute short film for the single Bad. TIME Magazine called BAD25 “an intimate view of a performer at his peak in the intense splendor of creativity” and the Hollywood Reporter said “restore(s) the reputation of Jackson as a multi-hyphenate musician of peerless discipline, professionalism and perfectionism -- not to mention a pioneering influence in dance and fashion.”

BAD25 joins an incredible body of Spike Lee documentaries including the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning, WHEN THE LEVEES BROKE: A REQUIEM IN FOUR ACTS and its follow up, IF GOD IS WILLING AND DA CREEK DON’T RISE, KOBE DOIN’ WORK and the Academy Award-nominated, 4 LITTLE GIRLS. Lee directed both short films for Michael Jackson’s They Don’t Care About Us from the 1996 HIStory album.

The BAD25 documentary aligns with the worldwide release BAD25 (a collaboration of Epic Records, Legacy Recordings and the Estate of Michael Jackson). The deluxe package contains remastered versions of the entire original album, a second disc which includes 13 rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks as well as the first ever DVD from the Bad World Tour – the July 16, 1988 sold-out show at Wembley stadium and the first ever Michael Jackson live CD from the same concert.
