The film will screen while Taylor takes a hiatus from the ongoing Era tour. This movie is expected to help Hollywood tide over the recent box office slump that has happened as a result of SAG-AFTRA actors. Those actors are currently on strike and not promoting their films. Taylor Swift will be resuming her Eras tour on November 9 in Buenos Aires. Swift’s Eras tour is on track to become the biggest concert in history, poised to collect over $1 billion in sales.
The Eras tour sold over 2.4 million tickets on the first day of the US presale alone – the most tickets sold by an artist in a day. Performing on 146 dates across five continents, it’s the biggest tour Swift has ever done. The film based on the concert will be premiering in theaters of over 100 countries on October 13, preceded by an October 11 world premiere in Los Angeles. The film expects to churn out $125 million on its opening weekend. However, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if it exceeded expectations.
