Taylor Swift: The global release of the concert film took place on October 13, in homage to the pop icon’s fortunate number. Originally scheduled for North American theaters, the acclaimed artist announced September 13 as the worldwide release date.
Special Early Screenings
At the premiere event of the film at The Grove’s AMC theater in Los Angeles on October 11, the Grammy winner delighted fans with a surprise announcement. She disclosed that exclusive early screenings would take place on October 12 at selected theaters in the U.S. and Canada.
AMC Theatres initially provided advance tickets for the “theatrical concert experience,” initiating screenings four times a day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Other participating cinemas later adopted their own schedules.
The theatrical release of the concert film had a duration of 2 hours and 45 minutes, shorter than the full Eras Tour performance exceeding 3 hours and 15 minutes. The reduction in runtime resulted from streamlined transitions, abbreviated song introductions, and the omission of several tracks from the setlist.
Filmed during the initial three nights of a six-night stint in Los Angeles, the documentary excluded certain songs performed during those shows, including “No Body, No Crime” featuring Haim, “Long Live,” “Wildest Dreams,” “The Archer,” and “Cardigan.”
Taylor Swift: The concert film will officially be available for on-demand rental in the U.S. and Canada on December 13, coinciding with Swift’s birthday. The singer-songwriter revealed the rental release date in late November, inviting fans to partake in her birthday celebrations the following month.
Taylor Swift: The release of her Eras Tour concert film proved to be a record-breaking feat for the Midnights artist. Even before hitting theaters, it secured the title of the biggest concert film debut of all time, thanks to advanced ticket sales. With a domestic opening weekend earnings of $92.8 million, it set a new benchmark, surpassing the previous record held by Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” concert film, which grossed $73 million during its 2011 domestic run.
