Justin’s “Never Say Never” has already grossed $63,300,218 so far making it officially the third highest grossing documentary film of all time! Woohoo!

Standing in his way is Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” (which I love because, well….. I don’t like George Bush) which earned $120 million and “March of the Penguins” which earned $77 million.

JB is expected to surprass Penguins to become the second highest documentary of all time but don’t expect it to surpass Fahrenheit.

But then again, never say never right?

Just in: Justin Bieber movie news!

Paramount’s Insurge Pictures today announced plans to release a special Justin Bieber: Never Say Never Director’s Fan Cut, a revamped version of the star’s movie, for an exclusive one-week run beginning Friday in 3D theaters across the U.S. and Canada.

Director Jon M. Chu and the studio began to develop an idea for a second, and more fan-centric, edition of the movie, while the first one was being made. “I realized I had an embarrassment of riches when I was I in the cutting room,” said Chu in a release.

He then spent dozens of hours on Twitter and Facebook engaging with fans to learn more about what they were most anxious to see. Some scenes contained in the new cut include: more of Justin’s friends and hometown life, new songs and performances, and special footage shot at premieres across the country.

The new fan cut will have a running time of 115 minutes.

Paramount’s Justin Bieber: Never Say Never retained more heat than expected in its second weekend, and will jump the $50 million mark by the end of the long President’s Day holiday.

Directed by Jon M. Chu, Never Say Never grossed an estimated $13.6 million from 3,118 theaters between Friday and Sunday, bringing the film’s cume to $48.5 million in its first 10 days, according to Rentrak.

The hybrid biopic-concert film fell only 54% — compared to a 70% decline for Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour in its second weekend. And on Saturday, the Bieber picture was down only 48% from a week earlier.

On Monday — a holiday — Never Say Never is expected to gross north of $3 million, upping its total weekend gross to nearly $17 million for a domestic cume of around $51 million.

Hannah Montana grossed $10.3 million in its second weekend, a non-holiday. That film’s final domestic cume was $65.3 million.

Never Say Never should easily hit $60 million, and has a strong shot at $65 million.

Bieber Fever helps to brand Paramount’s Insurge Pictures, a division designed to turn out low-budget films that have a strong social media component (it’s already stuff of legend how Bieber was discovered through his YouTube videos). Never Say Never cost $13 million to produce, including the 3D component.

Paramount still hasn’t said whether it will release an updated version of Never Say Never in theaters next weekend, a maverick move designed to encourage repeat business.

Chu has been working on the director’s cut, in between traveling to Paris and London last week for the premieres of Never Say Never.
