Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ Targets Global Box Office Record Held by Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ With China Release

It’s exciting news that Taylor Swift’s “Eras Tour” concert film is set to be officially released in China on December 31st. The potential to beat Michael Jackson’s record at the global box office is significant, especially considering the large fan base of Swifties in China. The approval from Chinese regulators for the local release is a crucial step in this process.

As per the data from Box Office Mojo, Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” has a worldwide gross of $261 million (Domestic: $72 million, International: $189 million).

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour worldwide box office currently stands at $249 million (Domestic: $179 million, International: $70 million), as per Box Office Mojo.

However, the release date clash with the local film “Shining For One Thing” could present a challenge, as both films will be competing for audience attention during the same time frame. The romance drama “Shining For One Thing” is already rocking the pre-sales at the ticket window with the gross collection over $33 million with 15 days to go for the release.
