MTV says a trailer for a Michael Jackson film built around rehearsal footage left behind after the King of Pop's death will debut at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards. "Michael Jackson: This Is It" will be released for a limited two-week theatrical engagement worldwide on Oct. 28. Longtime Jackson collaborator Kenny Ortega is directing the film, which offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Jackson preparing for a series of London shows he was rehearsing when he died June 25.

The 2009 Video Music Awards will be hosted by Russell Brand, with performances by Beyonce, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Green Day, Pink, Taylor Swift and Muse.

Janet Jackson will pay tribute to her late brother at the show. The Video Music Awards will be presented at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
