    It is not a surprise that Taylor Swift is out there breaking another record. In 2022, ‘Midnights’ broke the streaming record for being the most-streamed album in a day. When the tickets went live for the ‘Eras Tour’ concert on Ticketmaster, there was a huge influx of Swifties booking the tickets. It is no different, as Taylor Swift is set for an exclusive North American screening of her ‘Eras Tour’ film distributed by AMC Theaters.

    Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ film is raking in good numbers in pre-sales. During the first day of pre-sales, it reached $26 million, breaking the previous record held by ‘Spiderman: No Way Home,’ which earned $16.9 million during the first day of its pre-sales. The film is all set to join the likes of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ and ‘Spiderman: No Way Home.’

    Jerramy Hainline, Senior VP at Fandango Ticketing, told CNBC, “Taylor Swift is giving moviegoing fans and the entire industry the ultimate gift by bringing the Taylor Swift Eras Tour concert film to the big screen.” Due to the release of the tour film, Jason Blum has moved the release date of his horror feature ‘The Exorcist: Believer’ ahead to prevent any clash with Taylor’s film.

    The Hollywood writers have gone on strike to ask for better pay for the job that they are doing in the conditions provided by the studios and streaming moguls like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The production and promotion of films and shows have halted due to the strike. Amidst this strike, Taylor Swift shot an entire film, which, one may think, violated the rules and regulations of SAG-AFTRA.

    There are several reasons why Taylor Swift was allowed to shoot an entire film during the strike. First, the film she has shot has nothing to do with film acting, as it is a concert film. Second, she received a union waiver, which means that she was allowed to have a crew, but she had to adhere to the contractual agreement, which has terms like proper pay, good working conditions, and enough leisure time.

    Third, she is releasing the film through an independent theater chain. There are many production houses and businesses that are not members of the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
