Poll says Michael Jackson is this year’s hot Halloween costume

October 28, 2009

impersonatorA lot of “Michael Jacksons” will be making the rounds this Halloween. It seems that dressing up as the “Thriller” singer is popular this year, at least with movie fans.

In a poll of visitors to its website, movie ticket seller Fandango.com found that 13 percent of respondents said they plan to dress up as Jackson, who stars in the concert movie/documentary “This Is It” just hitting theaters now.

Actor Hugh Jackman’s character Wolverine from this year’s movie of the same name ranked second after Jackson as the most popular movie-related costume on the Fandango poll, with 11 percent of respondents wanting to dress up as the Clawed One.

After that, the most popular characters were vampire Edward Cullen from upcoming “The Twilight Saga: New Moon,” Snake Eyes from this summer’s “G.I. Joe” and Dr. Manhattan from “Watchmen.”

How anyone plans to dress up as Dr. Manhattan will prove interesting, because in “Watchmen” the god-like character spent half the movie walking around naked.
