That would be such a disappointment. Almost as bad of a move by the Estate as the Michael album.
Disappointment for you, amazing experience for millions all around the world. In 3D. How can you compare legit Michael Jackson World Tour with album that contains fake songs?
Michael would be torn to pieces by people if a fully lip-synched concert would be put to the theaters representing him as a "live" performer. It would make the general public question him as an artist. Even many fans are not impressed with the HIStory tour, why would we want that to represent Michael in the theaters when he had LOT better performances that could and should represent him? But I doubt it will be HIStory tour and hopefully it will never get a cinema release. A low key fan aimed DVD is OK, just not cinema release.
Maybe, maybe not.. who cares? It would not represent him as anything, it would represent a HIStory, a piece of history that happened and it deserves to be released. Maybe some will mind the lyp-syncing, but will be mesmerized by other things, like Michael, music, dancing, coreography, costumes, special effects, the tank, excitement of the public.. And all that in 3D.
Why want that to represent Michael in the theaters? Because it is awesome enough and it is the only tour in such quality and the only tour that can be released in theaters and in 3D. We saw how bad Bad Tour footage is, and they say that's the only concert in releasable (in their opinion) state. Victory Tour is probably little better quality but still not good enough for theaters & blu-ray release. So that leaves us with HIStory or This Is It 2.
You doubt it will be HIStory tour, yet John Branca himself said that it will be the next project.
Just because it's HD and can be made 3D it does not mean it should be put to the theaters by any means even if the performance would only open MJ up to criticism. And believe me it would. People take lip-synching very seriously these days, they aren't lenient about it. Whenever there is an article about an artist lip-synching that artist gets torn apart in the comment section very, very brutally. People do not care at all if there is some other spectacle, like special effects, costumes etc. - that all is considered shallow if the show is lip-synched. Sorry, but I don't think the general public would be impressed by it when not even many fans are. It also would not do MJ justice. He was awesome when he sang live, but this show being put in the theaters would give the general public the message that he could not sing live which would be totally unfair. I know Branca talked about the plan to release this to theaters, but I hope they come to their senses. And I don't think he said it will be the next project. He just said it was planned. He didn't say when.Considering Victory tour footage has been just uploaded on VEVO by Sony I think it's more likely it will have to do with that tour.
Was he criticized because of the release of TII to the cinemas? He did lip sync there too.
