Box Office: “Five Nights at Freddy’s” Scares Off Taylor Swift Eras Film with $10.3 Mil Previews — But Taylor Plans Discount Halloween Night, Selling $70 Polyester Sweater


Last night Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” concert film returned to theaters after three days off for homework and Girl Scouts meetings.

The film dropped 56% from the previous Thursday for a total of $2.6 million.

Winning the top spot was “Five Night at Freddy’s,” which took in a whopping $10.3 million.

The weekend looks scary for both movies, although Swifties will still go to theaters even as the novelty has worn off.

But Taylor has plans for Halloween. “Eras Tour” will play Tuesday night for $13.13 per ticket for everyone. It’s the reverse of “31” and Swift’s favorite number, as well. Fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite “Era,” which means I’ll be wearing clothes from way before Swift was born (if that’s what it means).

Meantime, Taylor Swift has nine of the top 10 songs on iTunes right now. She also has 13 slots between number 21 and 50. Maybe she should just have her own chart at this point!

Taylor is also selling a $70 polyester sweater on her site. Limit 10 to a customer!
