Justin Bieber beats Michael Jackson's U.S. box office record: Can he measure up globally?
Bieb's film, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," just surpassed the Michael Jackson postmortem hit "This Is It" as the most successful concert-themed movie ever. As of Sunday, Bieber's flick had earned $72.2 million in the US box office, just sneaking past "This is It's" $72.1 mil -- and Bieber's movie is still raking in money.
One thing Michael Jackson had that Bieber still hasn't been able to garner is international box office clout. "This Is It" earned $189.1 million overseas -- while "Never Say Never" has thus far earned less than $11 million outside the US.
