AMC Theatres, the film’s official distributor, announced that it has already raked in over $100 million in advance ticket sales worldwide, a full week before the film’s scheduled release on October 13.
This impressive achievement encompasses ticket sales from all theaters, regardless of location or circuit, demonstrating the global appeal of Taylor Swift’s music and performance. The film is set to hit 8,500 cinemas across 100 countries, marking one of the widest releases for a concert film.
The buzz surrounding “Eras Tour” has industry experts predicting that it could potentially exceed $100 million in North America alone during its opening weekend. If it achieves this milestone, it would become a groundbreaking success for a concert film in 2023. The current international advance ticket sales figure is bolstered by exceptional demand for premium large-screen formats like Imax and Dolby Cinema, according to AMC.
Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” has consistently shattered expectations, setting records for single-day ticket sales, with AMC Theatres reporting an astonishing $26 million in North America alone. This achievement surpasses the previous record held by Spider-Man: No Way Home.
