Michael Jackson Bigger Than New Moon, Miley? Yup.

Edward Cullen has met his match: Michael Jackson.
Since going on sale Sunday, tickets for Jackson's This Is It have been seller hotter than, well, Robert Pattinson's vampire.

Fandango said the concert movie was its new top seller, ousting The Twilight Saga: New Moon. MovieTickets.com said it had already recorded more than 550 sell-outs. And to put a global point on it, Sony Pictures bragged about big business from to Britain to Japan.

This Is It opens Oct. 28, if you don't count sneaks on Oct. 27. Sony says the movie, culled from rehearsals for the late Jackson's not-to-be London shows, will play only two weeks.

And if the limited-engagement line sounds familiar, then perhaps you've rushed to buy tickets to a concert movie before…

Last year, Disney billed Miley Cyrus' Best of Both Worlds show as a one-week-only event. Then the film scored a $31 million opening weekend, and one week turned into 15. Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus became the top-grossing concert movie of all-time.

So far.

While it's still early, This Is It is on track to top Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus. During its first three days of sales, Fandango said, Jackson's film outpaced Cyrus' first three days by a wide three-to-one margin.

The stat's a good reminder that even a pop phenom like Cyrus, or Pattinson, isn't the pop phenom.

Different strokes for different folks. For me Michael's the past, Twilight is today. No contest. Don't misunderstand, Michael was a great artist and his music will live on, but his peak was long ago for me. Looking back is good, looking ahead is better.
