"THIS IS IT": When movies are making news ahead of their release date, everyone takes notice. And when many, many people line up at L.A. Live, as they did over the weekend, to purchase tickets to the Michael Jackson film "This Is It," headlines are made. Tickets sold out in two hours; we're intrigued by the fact that the new Regal Theater will show the film on all 14 screens. Has that ever been done for a single movie before? "This Is It" screenings start on October 27th at 9PM.
TEEN VOGUE YOUNG HOLLYWOOD PARTY: At MILK Studios on Friday, September 25th. On the guest list: the McCord sisters, Katie Cassidy of the new "Melrose Place," Sofia Vassilieva, Taylor Lautner. Two months to "New Moon," Twilight people. Less than two months. "Meet the stars of tomorrow" -- in Teen Vogue's words -- via this photo-nice gallery; several of the party's attendees are pictured.

Phew. Our week can go forward.
