Over 3.5 million people liked Taylor Swift’s Instagram post within a couple of hours, which said her “Eras Tour” concert film was going global, with tickets expected to go on sale in over 100 countries.
Originally scheduled for an October 13 release in North America, the film will now be available worldwide starting that date, including every Odeon across Europe, AMC announced on Tuesday.
Taking the tour world-wide isn’t all we’re doing! The Eras Tour concert film is now officially coming to theaters WORLDWIDE on October 13!” Swift wrote on Instagram.
Swift’s announcement of the film broke the record for pre-sales in the United States in one day, earning $37 million.
On its opening weekend, the film is expected to earn over $100 million in North America.
We could be talking about the biggest film of the fall season, according to Jeff Bock, an analyst for box office tracker Exhibitor Relations.
The wildly popular Swift tour that began in March will take a break – performances will resume in November and last into next year. According to some analysts, this will be the first tour to break the symbolic $1 billion mark.
