Yes, the ‘Love Story’ singer finally confirms that her Eras Tour film will see a global release in over 100 countries on October 13, 2023.
She took to X and mentioned in her caption, “The tour isn’t the only thing we’re taking worldwide, Been so excited to tell you all that The Eras Tour concert film is now officially coming to theaters WORLDWIDE on Oct 13!” The pre-sales of the tickets were opened and the numbers stand at $65 Million which is more than films like Doctor Strange or Batman with an average of $60 Million and $42 Million, respectively.
The production teams and AMC are working at all levels to ensure the movie is available at 7500 theatres globally and has already been set up in over 4,000 theatres in Canada and the USA alone. The 33-year-old singer’s film will also see a release in all Odeon locations across Europe.
Surprise!! 1989 (Taylor’s Version) is on its way to you 🔜! The 1989 album changed my life in countless ways, and it fills me with such excitement to announce that my version of it will be out October 27th. To be perfectly honest, this is my most FAVORITE re-record I’ve ever done… pic.twitter.com/JFYOWhBxhj

The distribution executives “are taking steps to reach agreements with additional cinema operators throughout the world.” says reports from Variety. The fans are excited as “The running time for the film has been marked as 2 hours and 45 minutes. Even though that’s shorter than the nightly three-hour-plus length of her shows, Swift’s reps have assured fans that no songs have been cut from the setlist. So-called “secret songs” — representing the two-song wild card slot in her show — will be part of the movie,” reports from Variety mention further.
The pricing is based on Taylor’s favorite number 13. The Guardian reports, “In the US, adult tickets have been priced at $19.89, in reference to Swift’s upcoming release of the re-recorded version of her 2014 album 1989, and child and senior prices at $13.13, a nod to the 33-year-old songwriter’s lucky number. In the UK, tickets for the concert ranged between £58 for seating and in excess of £660 for the top-tier VIP package.”

To also support her fans’ excitement the American singer made an announcement where she mentioned that ethics and etiquette shall be followed at the concert, but film screenings are for the fans to unwind, “Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged.”
The tickets are available at official sites in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Portugal. Despite having fans who are more into concerts than movies, the movie has seen an impressive opening and collection alongside singer’s movies like “This is It” by Michael Jackson.
Variety also hints at an optimistic box office collection stating the weekend can be lucky saying “Exhibitors expect the Eras Tour movie to approach or surpass $100 million in U.S. receipts during its first weekend; if it does have a triple-digit opening weekend, it will join the company of only five films that have managed that so far in 2023 (“Barbie,” “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”).”
