Never before seen footage of Michael Jackson was released by Madame Tussauds on Monday.

The material shows the King of Pop performing his iconic dance moves for sculptors who were creating his wax figure.

Its release coincides with the attraction's launch of three wax figures of Jackson, which celebrates his life in three different stages of his career.

Zombies and Superman were no match for monsters this weekend.

Disney's "Monsters University" was the box-office winner taking $82 million. That's according to studio estimates.

It beat Brad Pitt's zombie romp "World War Z," which opened in second place with $66 million, and Warner Bros. "Man of Steel" which took third place with $41.2.
