Taylor Swift continues to have the Midas touch.
Her concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour scooped up an estimated $96 million weekend at the domestic box office and another $32 million overseas, for a global haul of $128 million — breaking the record for a concert film set by Michael Jackson‘s This Is It, which opened with $74.3 million in 2009.
The Eras Tour also had the second-biggest opening day at the North American box office, pulling in $39 million — just shy of 2019’s Joker with $39.3 million and beating the likes of Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Halloween, which grossed $37.4 million and $33 million, respectively.
Taylor also recorded the seventh-biggest opening day of 2023, landing in between Oppenheimer and The Little Mermaid‘s respective $43 million and $38 million.
The Exorcist: Believer took second place with an estimated $11 million domestic haul, bringing its two-week tally to $44.9 million in North America and $85 million globally.
Third place went to Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie, which grabbed an estimated $7 million, for a total of $49.9 million domestically and $126.4 million worldwide after three weeks.
Saw X pulled up in fourth place with an estimated $5.7 million, bringing its three-week North American tally to $41.4 million and $71.3 million globally.
Rounding out the top five was The Creator with an estimated $4.3 million weekend. Its three-week total now stands at $32.4 million domestically and $79.1 million globally.
