Taylor Swift‘s The Eras Tour concert film has become the highest-grossing concert film in domestic box office history.
The concert film opened to $92.8 million in North America and $30.7 million internationally, bringing its first-weekend tally to a massive $123.5 million globally.
The weekend box office collection surpassed the entire $73 million domestic box office total of the previous record holder, 2011’s Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.
“This is a phenomenal number,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore. “To have a blockbuster style opening weekend for a concert film is unprecedented.”
The Eras Tour, compiled from Swift’s summer shows at Southern California’s SoFi Stadium, opened in 3,855 North American locations.
The concert film was produced by Swift. Directed by Sam Wrench, the film documents the Eras Tour, Swift’s 2023-2024 concert tour in support of her discography.
