The ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’ Concert Film Will Have Its World Premiere In Los Angeles. You didn’t expect the Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour concert film wouldn’t have a world premiere?
AMC Theatres is the world’s largest theater exhibitor. The most anticipated film on the fall theatrical release calendar would have a global premiere event on October 11 in Los Angeles. The world premiere comes two days before the film, directed by Sam Wrench. It opens in over 7,500 theaters worldwide on October 13 at 6 p.m. local time. The film has been booked in almost 100 countries
Taylor Swift’s event will undoubtedly be the one to collect more money
There’s no indication on whether Swift will attend in person. But the Eras Tour concert film did secure a Sag-Aftar interim deal – assuming the strike was still in effect at the time. Swift’s arrangement permits her to potentially promote the film. It’s also unclear whether the concert film would be a countrywide simulcast on Imax and premium cinemas.

The Talking Heads reunion/40th-anniversary live event Imax showing of the concert film Stop Making Sense grossed more than $641,000 in a single night. Making it the highest-grossing Imax live event film ever at 165 Imax auditoriums in the United States and the BFI Imax in London. Swift will undoubtedly be the one to collect the money and bury the Talking Heads record; that is, if a live world premiere event is held.
We previously reported that the Eras Tour had garnered more than $65 million in presales from the major three circuits in the United States (AMC, Regal, and Cinemark), as well as Canada’s Cineplex and Mexico’s Cinépolis. That number, Lord knows, is far greater. While many believe Eras Tour has a chance at a $100 million opening for the AMC-distributed film. Even if it only opens at $75 million, that’s more than any major rock concert film from Justin Bieber.
Compared to Michael Jackson, or Miley Cyrus; heck, it’s more than the Spice Girls’ Spice World movie from 1997 (which was a musical, not a concert film). With more than $26 million in revenue, the Eras Tour broke the record for single-day advance ticket sales income at AMC in the United States.
