Scots snub Michael Jackson movie

Thousands have flocked to the premiere of This Is It, the documentary about the last days of Michael Jackson's life, in cities from London to New York, Berlin, Rio and Seoul. Buc

Despite record ticket sales in the US the screening failed to pull in the crowds in Scotland where the reception was a little less enthusiastic.

Just 53 people attended the premiere in Glasgow, while 40 turned out to see it in Dunfermline.

Kenny Ortega’s documentary is made from over 100 hours of rehearsal footage for the London concerts that Jackson was due to perform in the summer.
