Taylor Swift Sells $100 Mil of Tickets for Eras Tour Movie Set for Day After Travis Kelce Plays Next Game


Taylor Swift is going to wipe away all superstitions with her magic wand.

Her Eras Tour movie will open next Friday the 13th and everything looks good. AMC has already sold over $100 million of tickets around the world.

AMC says all theaters will have a 6pm Eastern start time on the 13th, but there will be shows all day and maybe even the night before in previews. That part is unclear.

If there’s a red carpet premiere, it will be coordinated with that 6pm show. So far no one from AMC will speak about press screenings or the red carpet.

What about Travis Kelce? The Kansas City Chiefs have a home game on Thursday the 12th at home. If he’s not beat up he could certainly make it to the premiere. Maybe AMC can have it in Kansas City itself!

AMC stock has been in the dumps all year. Right now it’s trading at $8.82 but it’s also up almost 7% for the day on the news of the enormous ticket sales. In the last year it was up to $91.50 and down to just $7.05.
