Taylor Swift’s Concert Film to Be Released Worldwide
Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated concert film is set to have a global release.
The upcoming movie documents Swift’s record-breaking Eras Tour, which not only captivated audiences but also had a significant positive impact on the economy. Originally scheduled to premiere in theaters across the United States, Canada, and Mexico on October 13, it was recently announced that the film will also be simultaneously released in select locations across Europe.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Swift expressed her excitement, saying, “The tour isn’t the only thing we’re taking worldwide. I’m thrilled to announce that The Eras Tour concert film will now be officially coming to theaters WORLDWIDE on October 13!”
For the international distribution of the film, AMC Entertainment, a renowned theater chain, will handle the release in the United States while also trying to secure agreements with theater operators representing over 7,500 cinemas globally.
Entitled “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” the film is set to be screened in more than 100 countries, with Odeon cinemas across Europe among the venues. Ticket sales for most international locations outside of North America will begin on Tuesday, as stated by AMC.
Within just 24 hours of the film’s announcement, it broke records. AMC reported that ticket sales for the first day reached an impressive $26 million, setting a new record for the century-old company. The previous record was held by “Spider-Man: No Way Home” with $16.9 million in single-day ticket sales.
Swift’s successful transition into the film industry follows the massive success of her Eras Tour, which filled stadiums across the country and significantly boosted local economies.
Industry experts anticipate that the concert film will continue Swift’s success, with projections suggesting it could surpass $100 million during its opening weekend. This release is expected to provide a significant boost to the North American box office, which, despite movies like “Barbie” and “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” is still struggling to reach pre-pandemic levels.
