The Eras Tour is already a box-office sensation, and it has not even opened yet. According to Variety, the production has reportedly sold $100 million in tickets before its release.
The film, which chronicles the first leg of Taylor Swift’s record-breaking Eras World Tour, will be released in 8,500 cinemas across 100 countries to begin with. As of today, the Eras Tour film is on track to be one of the year’s largest theatrical releases.
According to AMC, global advance ticket sales have surpassed $100 million (£82 million), and demand “has been incredible from the moment it was first announced.”
According to the studio, the film broke its record for highest one-day sales in less than 24 hours.
As a result, it has surpassed Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never as the most successful concert film in history.
In 2011, the Canadian singer’s film, which combined documentary material and live performances, grossed $99 million (£81 million).
Swift’s global tour, which is set to go until late 2024, is also on course to be the most successful in history.
Stadium ticket sales could top $1.4 billion, breaking Elton John’s current record for his farewell tour.
The Eras tour film will be released in cinemas in over 100 countries next Friday.
Analysts predict that, in addition to advance ticket sales, the picture might earn another $100 million at the box office in North America on its opening weekend.
This year, five films, including Barbie, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, grossed more than $100 million in North America.
AMC will also distribute Beyonce’s Renaissance Tour documentary, which will be released in December.
Swift became the first artist in history to have a song in each of the top ten US singles charts last year.
In September 2021, she surpassed Drake’s previous record of nine top-ten singles at the same time. The Beatles previously held the record with eight top-ten singles in 1964.
Swift made another record in August, becoming the streaming platform’s first female artist to achieve 100 million monthly listeners.
The announcement came after her third re-recorded album, Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), debuted at the top of the US and UK charts in July.
Swift will release her next re-recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version), later this month. She is re-recording her earlier albums to own the original song recordings.
Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour in theaters delayed the release of several films, including Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla and Blumhouse’s The Exorcist: Believer. “The one thing that terrifies me to death is Taylor Swift,” Jason Blum said, even putting the hashtag #TaylorWins” on social media. In the face of increasing demand, AMC said it will “continue to take steps to reach agreements with additional cinema operators throughout the world to play this spectacular Taylor Swift tour-de-force.”
