“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” concert film is yet to open in theaters, but it’s already a $100 million blockbuster.
A week before its much-anticipated global cinema release, the pop star’s concert film exceeded the $100 Million mark in advance ticket sales revenue worldwide.
Officially distributed by AMC Entertainment, “The Eras Tour” concert film is set to be screened in more than 8,500 cinemas in 100 countries starting October 13.
Fans worldwide have been waiting for Swift’s concert film since it was announced in August. According to AMC, it has set a single-day ticket sales record for AMC Theaters with $26 million in North America.
The concert film crushed the $16.9 million single-day sales record of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (2021) less than three hours after tickets became available for pre-sale in the U.S. at the end of August.
“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” concert film will be shown four times daily on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at AMC Theaters in the United States. AMC said the company is working to add more cinema screenings for the film worldwide.
Tickets are priced at $19.89 for adults and $13.13 for children and seniors. The figures hold significant meaning to the pop star. 19.89 is a nod to Swift’s year of birth and her fifth studio album, “1989,” released in 2014, which she refers to as her first “official pop album”. Meanwhile, 13.13 is a reference to the pop star’s lucky number.
“The Eras Tour” concert film is 2 hours and 45 minutes long. It was shot during the first three days of the Los Angeles leg of Swift’s record-breaking “The Eras Tour” at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. It is directed by Sam Wrench, the acclaimed filmmaker who has directed concert films for renowned performers such as BTS and Billie Eilish.
