Three months after he died Michael Jackson fans are getting a glimpse of what might have been. Rehearsals for his planned comeback tour have now been turned into the movie, "This Is It." WITN was at the first showing of the movie in Greenville at midnight. That’s where we met Angela Zeigler who says she's one of Michael Jackson’s biggest fans which is why she was the first to show up for the premier at Carmike Cinemas on Wednesday.

“It's really just to show my support for Michael Jackson, never mind what he did personally but as an entertainer, he's #1, he's top."

To show her support Angela along with her daughter drove from Goldsboro in full Jackson attire to catch the first show. Most fans we spoke to say they don't just admire the king of pop for his musical talents but also for his charitable work. So while he may be gone, because of movies like “This is It” and fans like the ones that showed up early Wednesday morning he will never be forgotten.

The move is playing across Eastern Carolina but only for a limited time and for a bit higher of a price. Tickets run at least $10.

    Why is Michael's legency made into a money market? If Michael could come back; he would say to each one of you "just beat it." Michael had lots of issues and there was noone who defended him while he was alive. Why now? You hipocrits. Nope, I am not a Michael fan.

    To: elizabeth, daniela and jasmine. It's obvious that you are a single person using different names. It's also obvious why you disagree with me.

    all this people who call him a freak.what is noraml to you and what is the great thing about being normal. i think the way we called someone a freak say more about us as society than him.btw, being normal is boring.

    i hate americans who think they have the right to judge somebody.first of all how do you know if he molested those children.at least you were there. honestly i fon't know if he did it or not and i don't care anymore, because he is dead.but why always people tend to think negative of somebody. plus why nobody judge elvis and he is treated like a hero. to my knowledge is was with a 14 years old girl, but why evenn when was acquitted we found mj gulity and trie to bring him down. i think it's sad.

    RIP Michael ... Shame on people who can only have evil mouth, it just prove that they only low life people who never do something good in their live ... nothing compare to Michael. They only have jealousy in their mind and heart ... May God showering them (haters) with love in their heart ... forgive their foolishness... coz their just need love ...(that Michael showed to haters out there who tried to disgrace on him ... Bless Michael)

    Each and every person who buys a ticket to see this should instead donate that money to an agency that helps molested and abused children. He was nothing but a rich, talented child molester and a freak,
