HBO has debuted the official trailer for “Leaving Neverland,” the four-hour documentary in which two men discuss in detail their relationship with Michael Jackson. The non-fiction feature, directed by “The Pedophile Hunter” and “Frontline Fighting” filmmaker Dan Reed, alleges Jackson sexually abused the documentary’s two subjects. The allegations in the film have turned it into one of the year’s most controversial offerings.
