(Newser) – The trailer for Michael Jackson’s This Is It, a flick pieced together from more than 100 hours of rehearsal footage, has been released, the Sun reports. Watch it at left. More on Jackson:

  • Messages left on Post-it notes give a view into Jackson’s state of mind before he died, News of the World reports. The notes ranged from reminders—"Do 'We Are the World' in a show"—to inspirational jottings: “I am so grateful that I am a magnet for miracles.”

  • Another secret Jackson relative is coming out of the woodwork—this time, Michael's half-sister JohVonnie, Joe’s love child, the Mirror reports. ““I feel rejected by some of my family. It’s upsetting and hurtful,” says JohVonnie, who was not allowed to meet Michael until she was 29. “It was a big moment for me. But Michael was looking at me and seemed cold. He just said, ‘Hi’ and then he saw my daughter Yasmine and was fascinated with her.”

I agree. If it was a biopic of his life many, many years from now, that would be different, but this is definitely just a cash-grab.

Wow, they're wasting no time cashing in on MJ. His corpse is still warm and they're working on some hastily-thrown together "movie."
