MJ's film breaks record, crosses $100 million

The late king of pop Michael Jackson's film This is it has crossed all boundaries and has crossed the $100 million mark at international box offices as it enters its second weekend in theaters.

The film has grossed $144 million worldwide, including $44 million from the United States and Canada.

This Is It, distributed by Sony Corp-owned Columbia Pictures, was produced from footage of Jackson rehearsing for a series of comeback concerts in London in the final weeks before his June 25.

The movie opened on October 28 and originally was planned to play for just two weeks, but Sony extended the film's run. The film is now slated to run until early December in the United States and Canada.
