Her latest film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” has broken a record for the largest domestic box office opening for a concert film, generating a staggering $97 million, Variety reports.
This achievement eclipses even stars like Justin Bieber, whose concert film “Never Say Never” grossed $73 million upon its opening in 2011. Prior to that, the record was held by Miley Cyrus and her film “Best of Both Worlds”, which took in $31.1 million in 2008.
“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” screened in no less than 3,850 theaters in the United States. Moreover, the success is not limited to the domestic market, as the film also debuted internationally with a gross of $32 million. It opened at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Germany and the Philippines.
For Taylor Swift fans in Brazil, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong, the film will be available from November 3, further extending its global reach.
A touching moment at the film’s premiere occurred when Taylor Swift embraced Beyoncé, who attended the event to show her support. Swift expressed her admiration for Beyoncé in a post on Instagram, “I’m so glad I’ll never know what my life would have been like without [Beyoncé’s] influence. The way she has taught me and all the artists out here to break the rules and challenge industry norms. Her generosity of spirit. Her resilience and versatility. She’s been a guiding light for me throughout my career and having her appear tonight was like a real fairy tale.”
The box office success of “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” is a testament to the artist’s impact on the industry and pop culture. Her influence and talent continue to cement her as one of the most prominent artists of our era.
