Beyonce’s look on the movie calendar is a much-needed advantage for the North American ticket office. The movie market is still in healing mode after the pandemic and has actually seen less releases in the last few years, resulting in less ticket sales.
“Early December is a historically slow period between the Thanksgiving and Christmas corridors with very few high-profile new releases,” stated Shawn Robbins, primary expert at BoxOffice.com. “This year’s slate during that time was certainly a bit thin before Beyonce staked her claim. There’s no question, having her fans come out to support her music and artistry on the big screen will fill some of that gap and continue to change how the industry approaches rare but occasional dead zones on the calendar when Hollywood studios aren’t releasing blockbusters.”

What’s in it for AMC?
The Beyonce and Swift releases likewise belong to AMC’s brand-new revenue-generation technique. The theater chain, in bypassing the conventional studio release design, will get circulation costs in addition to share in the ticket sales.
AMC, in specific, requires this type of income, as the business continues to invest more on film-licensing expenses and theater leasings than it makes in ticket and concession sales. In truth, the business just just recently published an earnings throughout its 2nd quarter this year, having actually produced earnings of simply $8.6 million.
“This is another savvy move by creators and exhibitors that bolsters the bottom line for movie theaters at year’s end while uncovering more unexplored potential from specialty event releases,” Robbins stated.

AMC, and other cinema chains, will likewise gain from raised concession sales as spectators fill up on popcorn and soda for these performance movies. AMC is currently promoting collectible Taylor Swift popcorn tubs for $1499 and cups for $1199 No doubt, Beyonce- themed products will be exposed quickly.
“The theaters have been playing live or recorded concerts for over a year now and began talking about alternative content possibilities two years ago, but the scale of Taylor Swift and Beyonce is certainly bringing more attention to this strategy,” stated Alicia Reese, expert atWedbush “It will be difficult to find other acts of this scale, but there are plenty of artists who will be touring next summer and theaters will likely be reaching out to schedule concert films to fill any gaps in the 2024 summer release slate.”
