Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ Film May Open At $100 Million With The Exponential Pre-Sales
Taylor Swift has become an invincible force with her music and the ongoing ‘Eras Tour.’ After finishing the North American leg of the tour, she embarked on serenading Latin America with her vocals. Amidst the tour, the artist has announced a film covering the ‘Eras Tour,’ which will be released on October 13, 2023, exclusively in North America. AMC Theaters will be distributing the film.
After the announcement, Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ film has received an astounding pre-sales response. Several exhibitor sources have told The Hollywood Reporter that the film may make $100 million during the opening weekend. So far in 2023, only a few films have been able to make astounding figures during the opening weekend. ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ made $146.3 million in its opening weekend. ‘Barbie’ and ‘Spiderman: Across the Spider-Verse’ made $162 million and $120.6 million, respectively.
Shawn Robbins, the chief analyst at Boxoffice.com, said, “It is still very early days for such a highly unique release. That said, nine digits looks very attainable for opening weekend if capacity continues to grow with additional theaters and showtimes, and especially if promotion ramps up more in the next few weeks to attract the non-Swifties as part of a true theatrical event.”
