Box Office: Taylor Swift “Eras” Returns Still Short of $100 Mil, Scorsese “Flower Moon” Blossoms with $2.6 Mil Previews


Last night Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” finally hit theaters in previews.

The take was $2.6 million, a promising start for a movie everyone must see and will eventually reap lots of awards. Leonardo Di Caprio and Robert De Niro star with Lily Gladstone in this riveting masterwork.

On the Taylor Swift front, “The Eras Tour” returned last night and made $5.8 million. That’s pretty good but still not enough to hit $100 million. That line will be crossed today. “The Eras Tour” is still booming but it’s starting to slow a bit.

One thing that hurt “Flower Moon” is bad weather tonight and tomorrow in the Northeast. Look for Sunday to be a bigger day as folks who didn’t want to get wet head over to the theaters. It’s worth a drop or two on the windshield!
