Advance ticket sales for the movie “Taylor Swift: Eras Tour” surpass $100 million

Taylor Swift’s highly-anticipated “Eras Tour” concert film is making headlines even before its theatrical debut. Just a week before the film’s release, it has achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing $100 million in advance ticket sales worldwide, as reported by AMC Theatres, the official distributor of the film. It’s important to note that these earnings encompass all showtimes, venues, and circuits screening “Eras Tour” globally, not limited to AMC locations alone.

Capturing Taylor Swift’s record-breaking stadium tour, the concert film is scheduled to hit theaters on October 13, a date chosen to align with the pop star’s lucky number. It will be screened in an impressive 8,500 cinemas spanning across 100 countries.

With such incredible momentum, “Eras Tour” is on track to achieve one of the most significant debuts of the year. Industry experts are speculating that the film could potentially surpass $100 million during its opening weekend in North America alone (the current figure includes international box office), marking a historic achievement for a concert film. In 2023, only five films — “Barbie” ($162 million), “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” ($146 million), “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” ($120 million), “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” ($118 million), and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” ($106 million) — managed to generate at least $100 million during their domestic debuts.

The “Eras Tour” has consistently exceeded expectations since the release of tickets. It even set a single-day ticket sales record for AMC Theatres, amassing $26 million in North America, surpassing the previous record held by “Spider-Man: No Way Home” ($16.9 million). Advance ticket sales have been particularly robust in premium large-screen formats such as Imax and Dolby Cinema, according to AMC.

For fans eagerly anticipating the film, AMC Theatres has planned to screen “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” with at least four showtimes per day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at all AMC theater locations in the United States. The cinema chain is also actively working on securing agreements with additional cinema operators worldwide to bring this spectacular Taylor Swift performance to audiences across the globe.
