“The Exorcist: Believer” Rescheduled to Avoid Swift Film Conflict

“The Exorcist: Believer” is bumping up its debut by a week to dodge a showdown with Taylor Swift’s concert flick. The spooky movie’s producer, Jason Blum, spilled the beans last Thursday on X (you know, the app we used to call Twitter). He slapped on the tag #TaylorWins and revealed the fresh premiere date as Oct. 6.

Both “Exorcist: Believer” and Swift’s rockin’ movie, inspired by her mega “The Eras” tour, had their sights set on an Oct. 13 release.

Fans on social media had a cute name for this double whammy – “Exorswift”. But, going head-to-head with the might of “Swifties”? That’s a tall order, especially for the sixth go-round of the “The Exorcist” series.

Now, about Taylor’s tour movie? It’s on fire! First day it’s out for grabs, and BAM! It breaks the bank at AMC theaters, raking in a cool $26 million. It outpaced the earlier champ, “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, which had set the bar at $16.9 million. And Taylor? She zoomed past that in a flash, like in three hours.

Following Swift’s movie announcement, AMC amped up their servers to handle surging ticket demand. Just a day into presales, the chain confirmed it will screen the film four times daily from Thursday to Sunday across all AMC theaters to meet the high demand.

Swift tweeted, “The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful, electric experience of my life so far and I’m overjoyed to tell you that it’ll be coming to the big screen soon. Starting Oct 13th you’ll be able to experience the concert film in theaters in North America!”
