It wasn’t the power of Christ that forced Jason Blum to delay the theatrical debut of The Exorcist: Believer. If a movie fan woke up on Thursday, August 31 and logged into their AMC Theaters app to check showtimes, they were in for a rude awakening. A message was immediately displayed informing customers that there would be a wait due to presale Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour tickets. And Blum jokingly blames Swift for having to postpone the opening weekend of his horror film. Bloom continued to write X, formerly Twitter:
“Look what you made me do. The Exorcist: Believer is moving to 10/6/23 #TaylorWins”
Blumhouses The Exorcist: Believer The theatrical release was originally planned for Friday, October 13th Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Not only has now laid claim to that date, but it appears that Swifties will make it almost impossible to compete with other films The Eras Tour on opening weekend. Blum therefore decided to open it The Exorcist Continued a week earlier on Friday October 6th.
It might have been the right move for Blumhouse. Tickets for The Eras Tour went on sale this morning at 7:15am CDT. And sources told deadline Taylor Swift’s theatrical event has already sold over $10 million in advance tickets.
Taylor Swift has made Blumhouse a “believer.”
explained Jason Blum Taylor Swift the winner of his post, since the CEO of Blumhouse Productions made the decision not to deal with the musician’s film The Eras Tour the weekend of Friday October 13th. Swift’s film will run four straight weekends in AMC, Cinemark and Regal theaters through November 5. He’s also featured on Halloween night – the only standalone day of his four-week engagement.
According to the same report by Deadline, AMC Theaters will not even grant “priority treatment” to their Stubs A-List members in these circumstances (editorial: something this writer can personally attest to, as I don’t even know the status of my Stubs A-List could check). Equalizer 3 Reservations without showing the “You’ll wait forever” screen.
Blumhouse’s decision to switch weekends was arguably influenced by the fact that AMC — after all, the world’s largest theater chain — decided to limit showings of other films Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour plays in theaters. Tickets to Swift’s theatrical performance cost Swifties anywhere from $13 to over $20 a piece. And The Eras Tour is shown in IMAX and Dolby formats.
