Taylor Swift Eras Tour Movie Returns Tonight After 3 Days Off, Plenty of Seats Available: Plus, “Cruel Summer” Top 4 Slots on iTunes


Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” movie returns to theaters today after three days off.

When we left it on Sunday night. “Eras” had made $92.8 million in its first run. But Swift wouldn’t allow it to be shown Monday through Wednesday so her fans could get their homework done.

The movie will obviously cross the $100 million mark tonight. But will the second week have a big fall off from week 1? So far, there are plenty of seats everywhere and no sold out shows. The novelty may be ebbing.

Meantime, Taylor dropped a live version of “Cruel Summer” today from the soundtrack (which is obviously coming) and it’s number 1 on iTunes. The same song, in three other iterations, take up spots 2 through 4. You do know that the real “Cruel Summer” came from Banararma years ago. It’s a much better song, too.
