The Eras Tour movie adopts a 'weekend-only' strategy which means that in select centres of the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia, the film will be screened for four consecutive weekends from October 13
Taylor Swift has delivered more than what she had promised her 'Swifties' as her latest cinematic expedition 'The Eras Tour' movie is setting the box office on fire. Having brought in over $100 million in pre-sales alone, the film opened in theatres in more than 100 countries and territories on October 13 and we hear that the film is eyeing an opening weekend figure of close to $97 million in the United States.
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is already the highest-grossing concert film of all time by a very comfortable margin but trade analysts now reckon that the hysteria surrounding the release lends it the potential to be something quite remarkable. One finds opinions and viewpoints emerging from all corners about how positively disruptive Swift's film has been with regard to theatrical viewing, and it is safe to say that its thumping success will redefine the 'filmed concert experience' business model.
When will Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour release in India?
The Eras Tour movie currently adopts a 'weekend-only' release strategy which means that in select centres of the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia, the film will be screened for four consecutive weekends from October 13. The strategy is quite unorthodox, no doubt, but it's also a major departure from the usual, highly limited theatrical releases of concert films. Also, one notes that the weekend strategy allows for the hype to pick up week after week with the audiences relating to the movie as an event of some kind.
The Indian Swifties, though, will have to wait a bit longer than other regions to catch the extravaganza on the big screen, but they would be delighted, nevertheless, to know that the film will arrive in theatres. PVR Cinemas recently shared the Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie trailer on social media and confirmed that the concert film will be in cinemas this November. Although PVR's post doesn't confirm the exact date, one gathers the film will be out on November 3, to be precise.
What is Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie all about?
Taylor Swift has evolved tremendously well over the years as a singer-songwriter and so has her showmanship in the live circuit. Known to be extremely interactive and connected with her massive fan base, Swift announced The Eras Tour following the release of her tenth studio album, Midnights, in 2022 and kicked things off in Glendale, United States on March 17, 2023.
Why is the tour so special? Well, for starters, the core idea comes as an "homage" to all her 10 music albums with The Eras Tour comprising a set list of 44 songs. This list is divided into 10 different acts, so to speak, that symbolize each of her albums and each act, in turn, will feature a distinct concept to make it a one-of-a-kind spectacle in the history of live music.
