Justin Bieber Surpasses Michael Jackson at the Movies

by at . Comments

For those who thought it would never be appropriate to compare Justin Bieber with Michael Jackson, we have three words for you: never say never.

The 17-year old icon has set a new box office record with his first foray on to the big screen, surpassing the King of Pop in the process. Through yesterday, Bieber's Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million domestically, becoming the most successful concert-themed film of all-time in the United States.

Jackson's This Is It brought in $72.1 million.

Bieber will never catch MJ on a worldwide basis, however.

This Is It, which chronicled Jackson's final tour preparations prior to his June 2009 passing, has garnered an unfathomable $189.1 overseas. Bieber's biopic has only grossed $10.8 million outside America.

Another point of historical comparison: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour earned $5 million internationally in 2008 and $65 domestically.
