Taylor Swift is taking over the world. It’s been a record-breaking year for the “Anti-Hero” singer, but she isn’t even close to slowing down. Only a few months into her year-and-a-half-long, completely-sold-out-at-every-venue Eras Tour, Swift has released a concert movie of the event, and the film is on pace to knock out Marvel and DC records — and has already beat the Spider-Man: No Way Home pre-sale record.

Spider-Man: No Way Home made over a billion dollars, yet Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert movie surpassed its pre-sales.

According to Deadline, Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert movie has amassed a staggering $26 million in presales for AMC Theatres within its first 24 hours. This extraordinary achievement eclipsed the previous first-day presales record-holder, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which garnered $16.9 million. What’s even more astonishing is that this astounding presales figure belongs solely to AMC and doesn’t account for the entire industry, including other major circuits like Regal, Cinemark, and Harkins, which implies that the actual total presales could be significantly higher.

When it comes to Taylor Swift, Swifties are on top of it. Just like when Eras Tour tickets went on sale, the Eras Tour concert movie saw whirlwind success as soon as tickets were released for sale. It only took three hours for the film to surpass the Spider-Man: No Way Home record, and ticket sales continue to grow as the film is slated to run for four weekends, with at least four daily showtimes at AMC theaters from Thursday through Sunday.

Taylor Swift has already sold more tickets for The Eras Tour then the last six DC movies.

Fandango, the popular online ticket seller, disclosed that The Eras Tour had shattered their first-day sales record for 2023. This remarkable achievement puts Tyalor Swift’s concert film in the illustrious company of other first-day presellers like Avengers: Endgame and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Jerramy Hainline, SVP of Fandango Ticketing, expressed his admiration for Taylor Swift’s contribution to the moviegoing experience, saying that Swift gave her fans and the movie industry a major gift by placing The Eras Tour in theaters. Not only does this concert movie allow for fans who were unable to get tickets to the Eras Tour — which sold out immediately, even after Swift added more concert dates to the schedule — to see the show, but unlike other major blockbusters, it’s the theaters that are profiting off the film, not the studios.

Taylor Swift’s remarkable ability to connect with her fans and her willingness to bring her concert to the big screen have ignited a frenzy of excitement in the moviegoing community. As the presales continue to surge, it’s clear that The Eras Tour is not just a film — like everything Taylor Swift does, it’s a cinematic event of epic proportions. 

With AMC leading the charge and Fandango echoing the sentiments of enthusiastic fans, it’s safe to say that Taylor Swift has once again proven herself as an unstoppable force in the world of entertainment. As the film gears up for its four-weekend run, all eyes will be on the box office to see just how high it can soar. In the end, it’s not just about breaking records; it’s about creating memories and paving the way for a new era in entertainment.
