    Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D
    will make its world premiere at the 74th Venice Film Festival 2017, announced the Estate of Michael Jackson today. Using the original 35mm film negative from Michael’s archives, Optimum Productions and director John Landis supervised an elaborate and labor intensive process to convert the acclaimed film to 3D, and all the audio has been updated to 5.7, 7.1 and Atmos standards to create the highest quality audio and visual experience.

    Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D World Premiere At The Venice Film Festival 2017
    Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D, long rumored and highly anticipated by fans, will make its world premiere at the 74th Venice Film Festival 2017, announced the Estate of Michael Jackson today. Additional media assets: www.mjthriller.net


    Creating Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D, the original iconic short film, directed by John Landis and written by Landis and Michael Jackson, was not reedited or recut in any way. Rather Optimum Productions brought Landis in and together they supervised an elaborate and labor intensive process that began with the original 35mm film negative from Michael’s archives and resulted in a 3D conversion of the acclaimed film using the latest available technology.


    To complement the enhanced visuals, all of the audio, including Michael’s music, Elmer Bernstein’s score and the sound effects, has also been updated to 5.7, 7.1 and Atmos standards in order to create the highest quality audio and visual experience for in theater viewing which is how Michael and Landis intended the film to be enjoyed.


    In making the announcement, John Landis said, “I am so happy to have had the chance not only to restore but enhance Michael Jackson’s Thriller! We took full advantage of the remarkable advances in technology to add new dimensions to both the visual and the audio bringing it to a whole new level. Even though Thriller was shot traditionally, I was able to use the 3-D creatively. Let me just warn you, there is a rather shocking surprise in there!”


    John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson said, “Michael Jackson made Thriller a rich theatrical experience: fun, funny, scary and wildly entertaining. No one before or since has made anything like it. Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D is a modern day technical enhancement of his and John Landis’ original vision, and I think fans will love it.”


    From the beginning Michael Jackson and John Landis set out to produce Thriller with the aesthetics of a feature film. Michael was a fan of An American Werewolf In London, and called Landis to collaborate on the project. Academy Award-winning make-up artist Rick Baker was brought in for the elaborate prosthetic transformation of Michael and the cast. Michael Peters collaborated with Michael on the choreography. John Branca, Michael’s attorney at the time and now the co-executor of his Estate with John McClain, worked out a deal with MTV and Showtime for a first of its kind “making of” documentary, Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, to offset the cost of making the short film.


    Thriller premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983, and it sold out every night for three weeks. No other music film generated such excitement and has such a hold on our attention, such that more than three decades later, we all share it as a collective memory and it remains the only music video to be inducted into the elite National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. It is fitting that Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D and Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller will premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival, the oldest film festival in the world. The Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller was available on VHS from 1983-1990, and has never been available for purchase in any format since then. Its screening in Venice will mark the first time that the award-winning documentary has ever been shown in a theater.

    I guess I don't see the point in making it 3D-wonder if that was part of their settlement with Landis?

    Here's the clip for those who don't wanna click a link (or at least what I think the clip is because it didn't work me, which is why I'm posting this just in case it doesn't work for anyone else).

    "I can tell you something about Thriller that you are going to find out about in 2017. I just finished that and it's pretty spectacular. It's a surprise. It involves's Michael Jackson's Thriller. "I'd tell you more but the Michael Jackson estate would kill me."

    I wonder how they will release it? They can't release a Blu-Ray that has just one short film. No one would buy it.

    They'll probably release it for Halloween next year.
    Considering Spike wants to make his next one about Thriller that leaves him enough time to make a documentary.

    If there's a home release I hope The Making of Thriller will be included.

    I am not reallt very exited...

    BUT - if it promotes Thriller and MJ in a positive way, it's fine-

    I just hope they will finally release the original Thriller (maybe The making of Thriller) on Blu-Ray. - They could also release Ghost on Blu-Ray then!!

    I hope they scan the other short films too in 4K so they can release them.

    Yes Tal you are reading my mind. I would love to have the Making Of Thriller i do not own on it.


    It only makes sense because Thriller was going to be done in 3D in This Is It.

    It must be Thriller 3D that Landis was talking about in 2014:
    http://www.slashfilm.com/michael-jac...-3d-rerelease/

    I don't mind if it is Thriller 3D, Making of Thriller, Behind the Scenes and on top of that Spike Lee documentary of Thriller (which has to be at least 3 hours long)
