‘Taylor Swift: Eras Tour’ Records The Highest Domestic Box Office Opening Of Any Concert Film, Grossing $97 Million

Taylor Swift’s dominance has expanded into the film industry, with her latest film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, being the highest-grossing concert film of all time with a $97 million debut, according to Variety.

This is the second-largest October opening day in history, trailing only the 2019 prestige comic book drama “Joker” ($39.3 million) and surpassing titles such as “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” ($37.4 million) and “Halloween” ($33 million). It is also the seventh-largest opening day of 2023, after only “Oppenheimer” ($43 million) and “The Little Mermaid” ($38 million).

Back in 2011, Justin Beiber’s Never Say Never broke the record with a $73 million opening. He nicked the title from Miley Cyrus and her Best of Both Worlds film, which grossed $31.1 million in 2008. It’s also worth noting that the film is the most widely distributed concert film in history, having been shown in 3,850 cinemas.

“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” also grossed $32 million in the international market, debuting at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Germany, and the Philippines. When the movie debuts on November 3, viewers in Brazil, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong will be able to see it.

In addition, Swift embraced Beyoncé, who attended the movie premiere earlier this week to express her support.
