HBO has revealed the first trailer for its two-part Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland. Watch it above. The film contains interviews with two men who claim to have been sexually abused by Jackson when they were children. Leaving Neverland will air on HBO March 3 and 4.
Leaving Neverland premiered on January 25 at the Sundance Film Festival. Jackson's estate soon issued a release condemning the film as "tabloid character assassination" and called the two interviewees "perjurers." The film's director Dan Reed told The Hollywood Reporter that he has received death threats since the film was announced.
