To say that Taylor Swift is a music star would be an understatement as the American singer turns everything she touches into gold. This is the case of “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour”, her tour that promises to break records not only in stadiums but also in cinemas, since its start coincides with an event in cinemas that is expected to be a great success This has thwarted the plans of several productions.
One of them is “The Exorcist: Believer,” one of the most promising horror films for the rest of 2023, which was scheduled to premiere on October 13th. And we say that was because its producer, Jason Blum, didn’t think it was a good idea to put Swift together on the same weekend, which is why he decided to move up the film’s release by a week, to the 6th of the same weekend Month.
“Look what you made me do. “The Exorcist: Believer runs until October 6th,” he said on X Blum, accompanied by the hashtag #TaylorWins.
Taylor vs Superheroes
And when we take a look at the advance sales figures for “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” tickets, Blum’s decision seems even more right. Through advance ticket sales alone, the film has grossed a whopping $65 million by its theatrical release on the 13th. Absolutely stratospheric numbers, but they are even more so when you compare them to some of Marvel’s current productions and DC.
On the first day, three hours after its pre-sale release, that total was already at 26 million, surpassing the numbers of “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, although there is still a long way to go from the latest film’s total reach Adventures of Spidey, which is no less than 120 million. However, with $60 million, it broke the mark of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and is well above the numbers of “The Batman”, which were $40 million.
