Swift bests Scorsese at field workplace, however ‘Killers of the Flower Moon” opens strongly

NEW YORK (AP) — In a film match-up virtually as unlikely as “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” Martin Scorsese took on Taylor Swift in cinemas over the weekend. And whereas the field workplace belonged for a second time to “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” received off to a robust begin in Apple Studios’ first main theatrical gambit.

After a record-breaking opening weekend of $92.8 million, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” took in an estimated $31 million over the weekend from 3,855 areas, in line with AMC Theaters. In an unconventional deal, the theater chain is distributing Swift’s live performance movie, and taking part in it solely Thursdays by way of Sundays.

Most Swifties rushed to see the movie on opening weekend, when a big % of gross sales have been pushed by advance ticketing. Gross sales dropped a steep 67% in its second weekend, probably signifying that “The Eras Tour” was predominantly an opening-weekend phenomenon.
