Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Film Shatters Box Office Records Worldwide

Taylor Swift’s highly anticipated concert film, “Eras Tour,” has already become a record-breaking hit at the box office, raking in over $100 million in global advance ticket sales. The film, distributed by AMC, achieved this remarkable feat even before its official release in cinemas.

AMC reported that demand for tickets has been extraordinary since the film was first announced, with the movie setting a new record for the highest one-day sales in under 24 hours. This incredible performance makes it the most profitable concert film in history, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never,” which made $99 million in 2011.

Swift’s global tour, scheduled to run until late 2024, is poised to become the biggest in history. Stadium ticket sales are expected to reach $1.4 billion, potentially breaking Elton John’s record for his farewell tour.

The “Eras Tour” film is set to premiere in cinemas in more than 100 countries next Friday, and analysts estimate that, in addition to advance ticket sales, it could earn another $100 million at the North American box office during its opening weekend. Only a handful of films, such as “Barbie,” “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” and “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse,” have generated over $100 million in their North American debuts this year.

AMC is also handling the distribution of Beyonce’s “Renaissance Tour,” slated for release in December.

Taylor Swift continues to make history with her music. In 2021, she became the first artist ever to have songs in every slot of the top 10 US singles chart, surpassing Drake’s previous record of nine top 10 singles at the same time in September 2021. Swift’s re-recorded albums have also been successful, with “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” topping charts in the US and the UK. Later this month, she plans to release her next re-recorded album, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” as part of her effort to regain ownership of her original recordings.
