Taylor Swift Tops the Box Office Once Again, Leaving Martin Scorsese in the Dust!

Martin Scorsese's 'Killers of the Flower Moon' gets outshined by Taylor Swift this weekend, but he's ready to hit back with his own concert movie next month

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ was surpassed by Taylor Swift this weekend. However, Scorsese will have his own concert movie competing against hers next month.

You know you’ve made it when you can outshine one of the greatest directors of all time at the box office. And it seems like there’s nothing Taylor Swift can’t do! In a battle royale at the box office this weekend, her concert film “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” triumphed over Martin Scorsese’s highly-anticipated film “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

Imagine this: Martin Scorsese, the distinguished director, dressed in a black tux and bow tie, standing on the red carpet. And then, there’s Taylor Swift, rocking a bedazzled bodysuit and flexing her bicep on stage. It’s the ultimate showdown, and the pop star comes out on top!

With a record-breaking opening weekend of $92.8 million, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” continued to dominate the box office, bringing in an additional estimated $31 million over the weekend. Meanwhile, “Killers of the Flower Moon” debuted with a respectable $23 million. It’s safe to say that Taylor Swift’s star power knows no bounds.

But the success of “The Eras Tour” doesn’t stop there. It has become the highest-grossing concert film of all time in North America, raking in a staggering $129.8 million domestically. Even during its second weekend of limited release, Swifties flocked to theaters to catch a glimpse of their idol on the big screen. It’s no surprise that it held the number one spot for a second consecutive weekend.

And just when you thought the showdown was over, Martin Scorsese plans to join the concert movie hype next month with a one-day showing of his 1978 film “The Last Waltz.” Scorsese’s masterpiece follows legendary rock icons like Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and Joni Mitchell as they perform in a historic Thanksgiving Day farewell concert by The Band. It has been hailed as one of the greatest documentary concert films ever made, showcasing the power and magic of live music.

While Taylor Swift reigns supreme, let’s not forget the achievement of Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.” It may have fallen short at the box office, but this historical crime drama, set in the 1920s, is still a streaming service success. With a production budget of at least $200 million, it marks Apple Studios’ most significant venture yet. The collaboration between Apple and Paramount Pictures brought Scorsese’s adaptation of David Grann’s bestseller to life.

As the weekend came to a close, two other films made their mark on the box office. “Exorcist: The Believer,” a horror sequel directed by David Gordon Green, settled in a distant third place with a respectable $5.6 million in its third weekend of release. Meanwhile, “PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie” and the timeless classic, Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” secured the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

All in all, it was a busy weekend at the box office, filled with music, drama, and a little bit of terror. It just goes to show that even in the world of movies, Taylor Swift continues to shine brightly. So, fashion lovers and Swifties unite, and let’s bask in the glory of our favorite pop star’s triumph!
