Thankfully, this is one comeback that isn’t a reboot or remake as IMAX Theaters are planning to bring us ‘Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D‘ and has cut a new trailer together from this iconic piece of history to enjoy. In an era where MTV still played music and showed something called music videos, there came a 13-minute video and short film that took the world by storm. In ‘Thriller,’ the King of Pop, Michael Jackson himself gave us a tale told to his music that has stood the test of time. It was co-written and directed by the incredibly gifted John Landis who penned it with Jackson.
Jackson’s Estate has teamed up with IMAX to digitally re-master Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D in IMAX 3D which can be seen below. The movie chain will b showing it for a week beginning September 21st, 2018 and be inserted before Amblin Entertainment’s ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls.’
Talk about a great way to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this classic short.
