Taylor Swift, the iconic artist known for setting numerous records, is making waves yet again. She has announced that the documentary film from her immensely successful billion-dollar Eras concert tour will have one-day early access showings in the United States and Canada.
Fan Demand Prompts Early Premiere
Taking to the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), the singer expressed her surprise at the fervent demand from fans. Swift stated, “Look what you genuinely made me do.”
“Due to unprecedented demand, we’re opening up early access showings of The Eras Tour Concert Film on Thursday in America and Canada. We’re also adding additional showtimes on Friday and throughout the weekend,” Swift shared.
Expanding Beyond North America
Initially, Swift had only intended to release the film, titled “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” in North America. However, it was later confirmed that the film would be screened worldwide.
The film is set to be shown in over 100 countries starting on the 13th of October. It was recorded during August, spanning the first three nights of the singer’s performances at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. The film is directed by Sam Wrench, known for his work on concert films for Billie Eilish and Lizzo, and produced by Taylor Swift Productions.
Film Length and Concert Comparison
The film has a runtime of two hours and 45 minutes, which is shorter than Swift’s Eras concert, known for its 44 songs and over three hours of entertainment.
A Boon for Movie Theatre Chains
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour provides movie theatre chains such as AMC Entertainment, Cineplex, and Cinemark with a high-profile title to help bridge the gaps caused by the ongoing actors’ and writers’ strikes in Hollywood. AMC, the film’s official distributor, reported an 11% increase in their shares after announcing that advance ticket sales for the concert film had exceeded US$100 million globally.
A Trend in Concert Films
Beyoncé also recently announced a new concert film based on her 2022 album Renaissance. Like Swift, she will distribute the film directly through AMC Theatres in the US, with the singer set to receive over 50% of the box office gross.
