Taylor Swift: Eras Tour annihilated the worldwide box office, pulling in roughly $95-$97 million domestically and $31M-$33M internationally for a $126-$130M global opening, per Deadline. We’re still awaiting final figures, but anything over $96.2M (earned by Joker in 2019) would be an October record domestically. AMC rivals are calling $94.3M stateside, which is nothing to balk at and still marks an enormous win for Swift.
Imax accounted for $11.1M from 377 screens domestically and $13.1M globally. Per the trade, the large format platform plans to add 106 more screens internationally on Oct. 26 and Nov. 3.
Last week’s champ, The Exorcist: Believer, dipped 58% for an $11M sophomore frame, raising its domestic cume to $48.6M. David Gordon Green’s horror sequel has earned $85M worldwide, including $4M from Imax.
Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie hit $126.4M at the global box office after hauling in $24.5M overseas and $7M domestically.
