Transfer over, Tom Cruise, and apologies to the superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What the field workplace wants proper now could be an antihero, and it is discovered her in Taylor Swift. Because the Alliance of Movement Image and Tv Producers stubbornly refuses to throw within the towel and settle for that the unique agreements proposed by the putting actors’ and writers’ guilds had been really fully truthful in the way in which they compensate artists for his or her work, theaters are in a dire place with regards to their fall slate. Main tentpoles corresponding to “Dune: Half Two” have already been pushed out of their unique dates within the ultimate third of 2023, and even awards season hopefuls like “Poor Issues” have been pressured to play calendar Tetris within the hopes that the strikes will likely be over by the point they arrive.
Likewise, the field workplace has taken a big hit over the previous month as a result of lack of actors selling their latest movies. Thankfully for theaters, “The Eras Tour” sells itself and will present a much-needed increase financially in what’s in any other case shaping as much as be a fairly sluggish October. The movie was initially slated to play not less than 4 occasions a day throughout its opening weekend at AMC theaters, however the vendor is actively within the technique of including much more showtimes the place “essential and out there.” Throw within the uncommon pricing for tickets ($19.89 for adults and $13.13 for kids and seniors on normal screens, with IMAX and Dolby showings costing extra), and it is no surprise theaters finds themselves in a little bit of a … lavender haze.
There is not any have to settle down: “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” is shaping as much as be the theatrical occasion of the autumn when it arrives on October 13, 2023.
