this_is_it_michael_jackson_1 The only big new movie this week is Michael Jackson’s “This Is It,” which actually hit theaters on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2009.

It’s the documentary about Michael Jackson’s big concert tour, which abruptly screamed to a halt upon his death. Fortunately, there’s plenty of film of the rehearsals and his creative process putting the tour together. 

Check out the official site, the trailer, and all of Film Gecko’s coverage.

Also released today are several films in limited release, including:

“The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day” – Sequel to “The Boondock Saints” about  bloody murders in the underworld of Boston. Stars Norman Reedus, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Clifton Collins (read my interview with Collins here).

“Gentlemen Broncos” – Offbeat story about a home-schooled kid who gets ripped off by a legendary fantasy novelist. Stars Michael Angarano and Jennifer Coolidge.

“The House of the Devil” – The title says it all. Stars Jocelin Donahue and Tom Noonan.

“How to Seduce Difficult Women” – Do men need to be reminded how to seduce women? Yeah, maybe.

“Labor Day” – A documentary about how Election Day was turned into Labor Day. Appearances by Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Ted Koppel and others.

“Looking for Palladin” – A comedy about an arrogant Hollywood talent agent (David Moscow) who’s sent to  Guatemala to find Oscar winning actor Jack Palladin (Ben Gazzara).

“Skin” – Story about a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners. Stars Sophie Okonedo, Sam Neill and Alice Krige.
