Taylor Swift is set to earn $1 billion from her Eras tour.

The Taylor Swift hype is real – and new box office figures for the Eras Tour movie are the latest way of proving it.

Selling an average of 54,000 tickets every show, Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is still in the thick of its success. Starting in March 2023, the singer now has shows scheduled until the end of 2024.

On top of that, Swift is bringing the concert experience to fans who couldn’t get tickets or want to experience the excitement again with the Eras Tour film.

Releasing in theaters on October 13, 2023, the concert movie has already broken a huge pre-sale box office record.

Eras Tour movie breaks pre-sale box office record

According to new reports, the Eras Tour film pre-sales are already over $65 million.

These latest figures make Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour not only the most successful concert film of all time but one of the biggest pre-sale figures in cinema history, beating out movies such as Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness and The Batman.

Clocking in at 3 hours and 15 minutes, the Eras Tour movie is set to exactly follow the runtime of Swift’s complete stage show.

Cinema companies are already capitalizing on the film’s guaranteed success, with some chains setting up private viewing parties for fans to rent out for hundreds of dollars.

Even before the record-breaking pre-sales, Swift’s film had already been touted to replicate the success of Avengers: Endgame on opening weekend.

Fans can’t hide their excitement for the Eras Tour movie

With the release of 1989 (Taylor’s Version) and Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour around the same time, there’s possibly never been a better time to be a Swiftie.

Fans haven’t shied away from their excitement, taking to social media to revel in the good news.

“Eras Tour movie tickets are officially secured,” one fan tweeted, while another gushed: “Perks of having a brother who works at the movies! He got the Taylor Eras Tour movie poster!!!”

“JUST WALKED INTO THE MOVIE THEATRE AND THE ERAS TOUR TRAILER WAS PLAYING,” one fan exclaimed. “Even the trailer looks so good on the big screen,” another replied in excitement.

While some Swifties speculate what surprise songs might have been recorded for the movie, others wonder whether Swift herself will make an in-theater appearance.

Though no plans are confirmed for this, Sony bosses have already hailed Swift’s film as a “massive, unexpected rescue” for the movie industry. Swift has also been able to secure an agreement with SAG-AFTRA during the strikes.
