Taylor Swift confirms The Eras Tour film to be shown in UK cinemas

The Anti-Hero star confirmed the film will be released in more than 100 countries.

Taylor Swift has confirmed The Eras Tour film will hit UK cinemas next month.

The film will be released in more than 100 countries from October 13, the same day as the previously announced US, Canada and Mexico release.

It comes eight months before Swift is set to bring the live show to the UK next year.

On Tuesday, the Anti-Hero singer made the exciting announcement on social media.

“The tour isn’t the only thing we’re taking worldwide,” she wrote to her millions of fans.

“Been so excited to tell you all that The Eras Tour concert film is now officially coming to theatres worldwide on Oct 13!”

Following the announcement of the US screenings, Swift encouraged fans to treat it like a real concert.

“Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged,” she wrote.

The film has shaken the industry with the Blumhouse-produced film The Exorcist: Believer moving their release date to a week earlier to avoid competing with The Eras Tour movie release.

The decision came after the first day of US presales for The Eras Tour movie amassed a record $37m (£30.3m).

Directed by Sam Wrench, who previously directed concert films for Billie Eilish and Lizzo, the film is produced by Swift’s independent production company, Taylor Swift Productions.

With a run time of 165 minutes, the film itself will be shorter than the real show in which Swift performs 44 songs across three hours.

The film was recorded over the first three of six nights that Swift played at the SoFi stadium in California in August.

October is set to be a big month for Swift fans, with the singer set to release her next rerecord 1989 (Taylor’s Version) on October 27.

The UK leg of The Eras Tour is set to kick off in Edinburgh in June next year.
