Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour Movie is Here

Welcome to another weekly installment of Couch Potato, where I go over what went down on the big and small screens so you can be a better-informed viewer.

As I hinted last week, Taylor Swift was set to make a huge impact, especially for a movie that is just a filmed concert. Just like the concert tour it’s based on, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour brought in some major money, and, because of the deal Swift got with AMC, she is keeping quite a hefty percentage of the revenue, too. So, what was the final number? It wound up landing somewhere in the $96 million range when all the glitter settled. Since so many additional screenings were added, the official final total was delayed until Monday, so I will have a clearer total for you all next week. This completely knocked everyone else in the Top 10 out of the water, as second place The Exorcist: Believer was only able to find $11 million. This is especially wild, given that it is a major horror movie just a few weeks before Halloween. This left poor PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie to pick up the scraps with $7 million of its own to round out the “Top of the Top 10.” One thing is certain after seeing these numbers. Don’t ever underestimate the power of Taylor Swift.

Since the box office was exclusively the Taylor Swift show this week, let’s move on to discuss what was happening over on Netflix. Reptile rallied behind its star power to get a second week at the “Top of the Top 10,” coming in first place with over 19 million views. This forced Fair Play to settle for second place, debuting with 12 million views of its own. Finally, Love is in the Air enjoyed another stable week of performance, coming in third this week with 7 million views. 

Meanwhile, on the streaming charts, celebrity gossip proved it’s still a strong lure for audiences as Beckham debuted in first place this week with a whopping 58 million hours viewed. This bumped Sex Education’s final season to second place with a still-respectable 53 million hours viewed. Finally, Love is Blind enjoyed yet another week in the “Top of the Top 10” itself with 32 million hours viewed, which is quite impressive as it enters its third week on the charts. Don’t worry, ONE PIECE fans; the series is still just behind them with 18 million hours viewed, so it’s still looking good for that show. 

Next week, I have a feeling that anyone interested in going to see Killers of the Flower Moon may want to check their local theater layout because it might be another weekend full of Swifties singing along to the concert. Sorry, Scorsese, but who knows? Maybe you can take the queen off her throne. We’ll have to see.

Stay tuned for that, and until next time, happy viewing!
