Taylor Swift: Eras Tour live performance movie is getting a worldwide launch this October
Swifties, It’s time to rejoice! Even if you didn’t score tickets to catch Taylor Swift perform live at her Eras Tour concerts, you can still watch her onstage in full HD. Get ready, because Taylor Swift is bringing the Eras Tour concert film to a theatre near you! Mark your calendars for October 13 (or November 3, in some areas).
AMC is working hard to ensure that Swifties from all across the world see the film. They are in discussions with exhibitors representing over 7,500 cinema theatres worldwide to screen the film. In Europe, you can catch it at all Odeon locations, and in the US and Canada, it’s set to play in more than 4,000 locations. What about in Asia? The specifics have yet to be revealed.
This film, directed by Sam Wrench and produced by Taylor Swift Productions, captures the beauty of Taylor’s three nights of performances at California’s SoFi stadium in August. It’s 165 minutes long, so it probably won’t cover every song from the tour, but we’re still in for a treat.
The tour isn’t the only thing we’re taking worldwide…….. Been so excited to tell you all that The Eras Tour concert film is now officially coming to theaters WORLDWIDE on Oct 13! Tickets available now at https://t.co/Oyy6tFmfeV or on your local theaters website! pic.twitter.com/rYJUpbHPJd

What are the predictions for the Eras Tour concert film?
Let’s get down to business. The Eras Tour concert movie is projected to make a tremendous box office debut, with some industry sources predicting a staggering $100 million or more in its first weekend in the United States. And that’s only the start! The picture might continue to be shown for weeks or even months, earning who knows how many millions more.
As per Puck, the streaming rights are still up for grabs, but you can guarantee that top platforms are eager to be the sole home of this record-breaking concert film. AMC has already broken a record with $26 million in first-day ticket sales, surpassing Spider-Man: No Way Home. It had such an influence that The Exorcist‘s release date was pushed back to avoid a clash. It’s a giant movie that no one wants to compete with.
Taylor might earn even more money by selling the film’s rights after grossing millions in theatres. This is going to be a cash cow, whether it’s digital downloads, DVDs, or streaming.
The movie is set to be the highest-grossing concert film ever. Surpassing Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert ($65.2M in 2008), Justin Bieber: Never Say Never ($73M in 2011) and Michael Jackson’s documentary/ musical This Is It ($72M in 2009) in the US.
If you’re wondering how Swift managed to make the film happen despite the SAG-AFTRA strike, the answer is simple: she agreed to the terms. She was able to carry through with her production despite the strike by aligning herself with the needs and requirements of the actors’ union.
