The Hidden Story Behind Taylor Swift’s Movie Deal

Taylor Swift has changed the game in music, now she’s taking on the cinema world.

The superstar is launching her concert film Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour in American cinemas next month.

However Taylor dodged huge offers from Hollywood studios and streaming companies and funded the filming and production of the concert movie themselves – reportedly at a cost of around $25 million.

Team Taylor are also distributing the film themselves, opting for US chain AMC.

AMC will receive 43% of the box office, with Taylor keeping 57%.

American film experts say the concert movie could take over $150 million on its opening weekend of October 13.

Her concert is estimated to make around $3 billion dollars with the current 146 dates announced, making it the highest-grossing live music in history.

The tour reaches Australia in February – the concert movie is expected to air in local cinemas after the tour.

Behind the Hits’ Taylor Swift: Eras special features the star talking about her career, but also fans including Bridget Hustwaite on the trauma of getting tickets for the tour.
