AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. CEO, Adam Aron, has expressed his “eternal gratitude” to Taylor Swift as her concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” continues to break records. The film has earned an impressive $261.6 million globally, making it the highest-grossing concert and documentary film in history, surpassing “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.”
Aron took to Twitter to share the news, stating, “Now at $261.6 million globally, AMC’s first-ever released film, TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR just became the highest-grossing concert film & highest-grossing documentary film of all time. AMC sends our congratulations and eternal gratitude to Taylor Swift for being so remarkable.”
In addition to being shown in AMC theaters, the movie is also distributed by AMC Theatres Distribution. They have secured deals with more than 8,500 theaters around the world to showcase “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.”
The film’s success began even before its official release on Oct. 13, with additional showings being added due to “unprecedented demand.” It shattered the record for the biggest global opening weekend for a concert film, bringing in $128 million in box-office returns. Imax Corp. also celebrated the film’s success, announcing a $13 million global box-office debut, marking the largest Imax opening for a concert or documentary film by a musical artist.
Despite recent record lows, AMC shares are only down 1% as of Monday. The movie-theater chain has faced challenges in the past year, but Taylor Swift’s film has provided a much-needed boost. As AMC continues to navigate the ever-evolving industry, they are grateful for Swift’s contribution and extraordinary achievement.
