To stoke the fires for next month's big-screen release of "This Is It" -- the feature film compilation of footage from Michael Jackson's final tour rehearsals -- Sony has slipped out a snippet of footage.
It's not quite a minute of Michael, running through the blocking for the song "Human Nature" from his hit "Thriller" album.
Check it out -- he was still in fine voice ...
"This Is It" is a rushed-together documentary of the preparations for Jackson's comeback shows, originally scheduled for July in London. Jackson died in June. The movie, culled from rehearsal footage (we posted some of that earlier), will stand as the final document of Jackson's massive musical career.
Then again, there might be more shows to come, since he's allegedly still alive.
