For this bet to be true, Taylor Swift would have to make a gross opening bigger then Barbie which accounted for $356.3 million sales worldwide, calling Barbie officially the biggest movie of the year 2023.
Yes, Taylor Swift's Eras Tour has huge potential to become as successful as Barbie; however, when we look at the marketing strategy of both movies, we can clearly see a difference. The total Marketing cost of the Barbie movie exceeded $150million, gaining worldwide recognition long before the movie reached the screens in the cinema. ( https://deadline.com/2023/10/box-office-taylor-swift-eras-tour-concert-movie-marketing-chiefs-game-travis-kelce-1235572402/) however when it comes to Taylor's Swift Eras Tour movie, in the USA only $ 5 million have been spent to promote the movie across AMC cinemas. and the data on the marketing cost is hidden

. Not to mention that I, personally, was unaware of the movie coming out, despite being a "Swifite" fan. Hence I vote for NO.

predicted NO

@GruningFamily No, the threshold was $162b (but still it wasn't met)

The opening weekend of 'Taylor Swift: Eras Tour' is predicted to be larger than 'Barbie' since Taylor Swift, with 274 million Instagram followers, is a very well-known and popular artist, whereas Margot Robbie, with only 3 million followers. Furthermore, recent concert attendance figures reveal Taylor Swift's huge draw power, with an average attendance of 72,459 per show and even creating seismic activity during a performance in downtown Seattle, proving her immense popularity and economic impact. As Chris Leyden, director of growth marketing at SeatGeek, aptly put it, she's not merely a performer but an 'economic phenomenon'.

predicted NO

@ZinebKaoukab I always try to pay attention to the market probability and account for any differences in a prediction that goes against the market if possible. In this case the market is at 0.5% because projections show it to be significantly lower.
