Justin Bieber Overtakes Michael Jackson at US Box Office

Paramount Pictures (NEW YORK) -- Justin Bieber's concert film Never Say Never has moonwalked past Michael Jackson's posthumous tribute This Is It at the U.S. box office.

The Hollywood Reporter
notes Justin Bieber: Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million since its release six weeks ago, just slipping past the $72.1 million earned by Jackson's film.

However, Jackson remains a force to be reckoned with overseas even after his 2009 death.  The foreign receipts for This Is It total $189.1 million to date, compared to the $10.8 million earned so far by Bieber's film internationally.

Justin Bieber's Documentary Now Third-Highest-Grossing of All Time

Paramount Pictures (NEW YORK) -- Justin Bieber's movie, Never Say Never, is now officially the third-highest grossing documentary in film history, according to Box Office Mojo.

Never Say Never has so far grossed $64,162,036, earning it the number three spot, and is hot on the tail of the number two documentary of all time, March of the Penguins, which earned over $77 million.  Most pundits feel it's unlikely that it will grab the number one spot that's currently held by Fahrenheit 9/11, which earned $119 million, but to quote Bieber, never say never.  His 3-D flick has already cruised by other heavyweight documentaries including Bowling for Columbine, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, and Earth.

On another note, there has also been talk that Never Say Never could earn an Oscar nod as best documentary.  Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that that possibility was a topic of discussion at some post-Oscar parties -- it caught the attention of some Academy members due to its impressive track record.

Report: 'Never Say Never 2.0' Hitting Theaters in March

Photo Courtesy - Paramount Pictures (NEW YORK) -- Looks like rumors that an updated version of Justin Bieber's 3D film will be coming out soon are true.  Billboard now reports that Never Say Never 2.0 will arrive in theaters on March 4.

The updated film will include 20 pieces of music that are not in the version currently in theaters, sources tell Billboard.  According to the magazine, some of the changes made were based on comments received after test screenings of the film.  Overall, though, the idea was to make it different enough so those who have already seen the film will want to come back for a second look.

This may not even be the final chapter of Bieber's life that we see on film.

Never Say Never director Jon Chu tells ABC News Radio, "I always thought this was sort of a trilogy in a weird way...I think [this movie] is the origin story.  And then 10 years later, we'll come back and do the next one.  Ten years after that, we'll do a third one and just have a complete collection of how a young star came from nowhere and where he ended [up]."

Billboard reports the DVD of Never Say Never will come out in August.

Photo Courtesy - Island Def Jam(LOS ANGELES) -- Hundreds of Justin Bieber fans showed up to scream at the Los Angeles premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never at the L.A. Live complex's Nokia Theater. Stars who walked the purple carpet included Will Smith and his famous kids Jaden and Willow, Glee's Jane Lynch, Bieber's rumored girlfriend Selena Gomez, and of course Bieber himself, who was whisked onto the carpet with security enough to rival a head of state.

Sporting a velvety purple jacket, Bieber greeted his fans -- most of whom couldn't score tickets to the event, and who seemed content just enough to catch a glimpse of the star and shriek at the top of their lungs.

The concert film and biopic hits theaters Feb. 11.
