[video] 44-Year-Old FL Man Arrested For Causing Panic At Batman Showing After Yelling “This Is It”!

This dude is a first class idiot and is lucky he did not get shot.

A Miami Beach man is in custody after he caused a panic in a theater during a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” police said Tuesday. According to a Miami Beach Police arrest affidavit, 44-year-old David Martin Escamillo was at the Regal Movie Theater late Monday night when he got into an altercation with another moviegoer, left the theater and returned wearing black gloves and screamed “This is it!” from the back of the theater. Escamillo’s actions sent a hundred moviegoers fleeing for the exits, the affidavit said. When officers responded to the theater to a call of shots fired, they found three moviegoers detaining Escamillo, who was screaming, “I didn’t shoot anybody,” the affidavit said. James Butler said he and his brother were two of them. They waited outside the theater and chased Escamillo down and held him until police arrived. “My instincts kicked in, and I was like, let’s get this guy. He was screaming, ‘I never shot anyone, I never hurt anyone,'” Butler said. Escamillo, who sounded irrational and had a strong smell of alcohol on his breath, was taken into custody, the affidavit noted.” – NBC News

Judge approves Michael Jackson movie

Picture 15 Sony has secured the rights to release “This Is It,” a film using footage of Michael Jackson’s rehearsals for his “This Is It” tour.

Sony is paying concert promoter AEG Live and Jackson’s estate $60 million for the footage, which will be presented in HD, with some sequences in 3D, when it hits theaters Oct. 30. The film is being directed by Kenny Ortega, who was directing the concert and who also helmed the “High School Musical” movies.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff approved the deal Friday and announced his ruling Monday during a hearing where a separate merchandising deal, on which he is yet to rule, was being considered.

The studio said the film will be drawn from hundreds of hours of rehearsal and behind-the-scenes footage — most of which was shot in June at Staples Center in Los Angeles and the Forum in Inglewood — as well as interviews with friends and collaborators of the late performer, who died on June 25.
