Beyonce Renaissance Tour Movie Winding Down with $32 Mil, Far Cry from Taylor Swift Eras Tour Film


The beehive did not buzz much for Beyonce’s “Renaissance” movie.

The party is pretty much over, as “Renaissance” is at $32 million and winding down its theatrical release. Right now it’s playing once a day in a handful of theaters.

“Renaissance” was supposed to follow Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” movie, which has made $179 million in the US and $250 million total worldwide. “Eras” is also over, playing similarly one show a day in a few places. “Eras Tour” is on VOD for twenty bucks, which is where you can catch it.

The novelty of “Eras” got everyone excited but it was hard to duplicate. The next singer to try this will be Adele, with a film about her run in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. But that probably won’t be until after she finishes next summer.

As for Beyonce, her take was nothing to be embarrassed about. But now she should try and make a great album with classic songs so she can get her Grammy for Album of the Year.
