Move over, Barbenheimer. This next big movie duo will make your head spin.
A concert film of Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” is hitting movie theaters on Friday, Oct. 13 – the identical day as the subsequent installment of the “Exorcist” horror franchise, making for an additional potential wild movie double feature. Call it Exorswift.

Swift’s concert film documents the wildly popular tour that raked in hundreds of thousands and was on its option to hit a record-breaking $1 billion in sales earlier this summer.
It would be in all AMC Theatres locations in North America with at the least 4 showtimes per day on Thursday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, in keeping with a release.
The movie show company noted that greater than 3 million fans attended the tour in its first leg of its U.S. run, shattering concert sales records.
“The Exorcist: Believer,” produced by horror film studio Blumhouse, takes place 50 years after the unique film. It would be distributed by Universal. The film stars Leslie Odom Jr. of “Hamilton” fame and Ellen Burstyn, who starred within the 1973 demonic possession classic.
