‘Taylor Swift: Eras Tour’ Film Surpasses $100 Million in Advance Ticket Sales

Taylor Swift‘s “Eras Tour” concert film is breaking records before it even hits theaters.

With more than a week until it graces the big screen, the movie has surpassed $100 million globally in advance ticket sales, according to its official distributor AMC Theatres. These revenues encompass all showtimes, locations, and circuits playing “Eras Tour,” not just AMC.

Swift’s concert film, a rendering of her record-breaking stadium tour, opens in theaters on Oct. 13 — to coincide with the pop star’s lucky number — and will screen in 8,500 cinemas across 100 countries.

With this momentum, it’s poised to land one of the biggest opening weekends of the year. Only five movies in 2023 — “Barbie” ($162 million), “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” ($146 million), “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” ($118 million), “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” ($120 million) and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” ($106 million) — have generated at least $100 million in their debuts.

“Eras Tour” has been shattering expectations since tickets first went on sale. It set a single-day record for AMC Theatres with $26 million, besting the all-time benchmark previously held by “Spider-Man: No Way Home” ($16.9 million).

“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” will play at least four showtimes per day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Given this unprecedented demand, AMC and fellow exhibitors are already adding additional showtimes to increase capacity where it’s “necessary and available.”
