Justin Bieber’s new movie documentary, “Never Say Never 3-D,” has surpassed Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” as the most successful concert-themed film in US history as fans want to continue their Bieber Fever and relive his tour again and again in the comfort of their own homes.
17-year-old Bieber’s recent film release has taken just one month to earn more than the King of Pop’s posthumous release. It was released in February 2011 and Bieber’s earnings so far on the film have been $72.2 million in the US, compared to Michael’s $72.1 million. However, the Bieb has a little way to go yet to topple the late Jackson’s worldwide record of $189.1 million for the same movie. Give him time – Justin Bieber’s overseas takings have been just $10.8 million so far.
Maybe the current world tour of the Canadian teen pop sensation will boost that number of worldwide sales as he seems to be acquiring more fans wherever he goes, as much for his sweet and gentlemanly behavior as for his music. But it is thought that the decision to release a limited period director’s cut of the movie, with 40 minutes of extra footage, in the US and Canada, helped to boost sales. It incorporates previously unseen footage from the movie’s promotional tour.
