“Look what you made me do,” laughs producer Jason Blum with a hashtag saying #Tayloragagné.
Scheduled for October 13 in American theaters, The Exorcist: Believer will finally be released a week earlier, on October 6. And the reason may be surprising: this decision was taken after the announcement of the start of the broadcast of the tour of Taylor Swift on US territory, its shows being planned from this date at the cinema.
What is the connection between the singing star and this horror film reboot? It turns out that it is an audience of young women who mainly go to theaters to see this type of production. Among these horror movie fans, many also love Taylor Swift. And AMC, one of the largest theater operators in the country, has signed a deal with it to broadcast its concerts on the big screen, so it would be a shame to have too much competition from 10/13 /2023…
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! Tickets are on sale now at… pic.twitter.com/eKRqS8C7d1

Barbie cinematographer wants to work on Taylor Swift’s first film
Let us also point out that on October 6, there was a “hole” since Sony decided to postpone Kraven the Hunter in 2024. The new version of The Exorcist by David Gordon Green (who previously rebooted Halloween) now has all the cards to get off to a good start at the box office. The film stars Leslie Dodom Jr. and Ann Dowd, and should mark the return of Ellen Burstyn to this franchise.
This nickname, invented by Internet users and modeled on the “Barbenheimer” who opposed barbie And Oppenheimer in theaters in mid-July, so it won’t last long. “Look what you made me do, producer Jason Blum had fun on Twitter. The Exorcist: Believer is moved to October 6, 2023.” All accompanied by a hashtag saying #Tayloragagn.
In France, the horror film is called The Exorcist: Devotion. It will be released in theaters on October 11 and here is its trailer:
