“Taylor Swift, the chart-topping sensation, is set to conquer the silver screen this October. In a recent social media announcement, the pop icon revealed an upcoming concert film featuring her ‘Eras Tour,’ hitting U.S. theaters on the superstitious date, October 13th.
Swift described ‘The Eras Tour’ as the most profound and electrifying experience of her life, inviting fans to join the spectacle, donning era-inspired attire, exchanging friendship bracelets, and singing and dancing along.
This record-breaking stadium tour faced ticket scarcity due to overwhelming demand, prompting government inquiries into Ticketmaster’s presale handling. For those who missed out on concert tickets, early sales for movie tickets have begun for popular theaters.
Unlike most concert films with short theater runs, Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ promises to linger. AMC Theaters, anticipating a surge of “Swifties,” has committed to multiple daily showings throughout its theatrical tenure. To cope with the ticket frenzy, AMC has bolstered its website and ticketing systems, but fans may still encounter online delays and site outages.
Despite concerns, ticket buying has reportedly been smooth. AMC customers experienced a short 15-minute queue, while Fandango had no wait time.
The concert was likely filmed at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium in August, fueling speculation about a concert film. While Swift has previously released concert films on platforms like Netflix, this marks her first venture into traditional box office territory.
International release remains uncertain, given the ‘Eras Tour’ won’t leave the Americas until 2024 when Swift tours Europe, Japan, and Australia.
AMC lists the film’s runtime as 2 hours and 45 minutes, slightly shorter than live stadium performances. The difference likely accounts for edited costume changes and set adjustments between songs.”
