According to Christopher Nolan, Hollywood studios missed out on distributing Taylor Swift's concert video, Taylor Swift:
The Eras Tour, because she distributed it directly through AMC theaters.During a recent panel discussion at City University of New York,
the Oppenheimer filmmaker discussed how the pop singer circumvented studios and worked directly with AMC Theatres to deliver her picture to the big screen.
Nolan talked with his Oppenheimer producing partner and wife Emma Thomas, who claimed that studios had been too hesitant to release films in the streaming era.
"Taylor Swift is about to show the studios, because her concert film is not being distributed by the studios,
it's being distributed by a theater owner, AMC, and it's going to make an enormous amount of money," Nolan said in a statement.
"And here's the thing: this is a format, a way of seeing things and sharing stories or experiences that is extremely valuable."
And if they don't want it, it will be taken by someone else. That is simply the truth."
During the Oct. 13-15 weekend, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour grossed a record $92.8 million domestically and $123.5 million globally.
It also became the highest-grossing concert picture in North America and the second-largest October domestic premiere, not adjusted for inflation.
