Taylor Swift sold out stadiums earlier this year and now she’s selling out movie theaters. The pop star’s Eras Tour concert film opened at number-one at the weekend box office with $96 million — making it the highest-grossing concert film, surpassing the entire $73 million run of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never in 2011.
The Eras Tour added another $32 million at the international box office. When the final numbers come in on Monday, Taylor could have the best October debut, which is held by 2019’s Joker with $96 million.
In an distant second was The Exorcist: Believer with $11 million, followed by PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie ($7 million), Saw X ($5.7 million) and The Creator ($4.3 million).
