The film “Leaving Neverland,” which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, tells the story of two men, now in their 30s, who had long-running relationships with the King of Pop at ages 7 and 10.
The late star’s estate blasted the film as “yet another lurid production,” in a statement Wednesday.

Jackson was acquitted of molestation charges in a 2005 trial. The entertainer died in June 2009.
