How to get your ‘Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour’ popcorn bucket?

Taylor Swift is making her grand entrance onto the silver screen with her concert film, “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour,” and this can only mean one thing: it’s time to grab some popcorn.

AMC Theaters is rolling out exclusive Eras Tour popcorn containers, tins, and cups adorned with snapshots of Swift from various eras of her career. Given the fervor of Swifties when it comes to merchandise, these collectibles are bound to fly off the shelves as swiftly as tickets for the movie itself.

Swift’s impact has been nothing short of extraordinary, smashing box-office predictions in pre-sales. She even outpaced major titles like Barbie and Spider-Man: No Way Home, with projections of over $100 million for the opening weekend. The 12-time Grammy winner graced the red carpet at the AMC in Los Angeles, where the premiere took place, making surprise appearances at 13 different screenings to connect with her adoring fans. And if that wasn’t enough, even Beyoncé made a cameo, underscoring the monumental nature of this film.

All of this underscores that you can’t leave empty-handed. It’s practically a rule. So, how can you get your hands on your very own Eras Tour movie memorabilia to complement your Eras Tour bracelets and t-shirts (because, let’s face it, you’ve got those too)?

Acquiring your Eras Tour popcorn container is actually quite straightforward. Simply head over to the concession stand and ask for a bucket, tin, or cup (or perhaps all three). The only hitch is that supplies are limited, so it’s hard to predict how long these exclusive items will be in stock. Judging by the speed of ticket sales for the movie, it likely won’t be for long.

At AMC, you’ll have a choice between a large popcorn tub for $14.99 USD, a sizable popcorn tin for $19.89 USD (a nod to Swift’s fifth studio album, “1989”), and either a large or regular-sized collectible cup for $11.99 USD and $9.99 USD, respectively.

However, in true Swift fashion, it’s never quite that simple. Depending on where you’re located, there are actually five potential popcorn containers, and six variations of the cups.

The U.K.’s Odeon Cinemas, for instance, offers the same pink tin as the U.S., but opts for pink tumblers instead of cups. This is a trend also seen in other countries like Thailand. Collecting these different variations, much like Swifties do with her vinyl variants, has become a popular pastime, with many turning to eBay for their acquisitions.

Is it any surprise that Swift is estimated to have contributed a staggering $5 billion to the global economy? The woman has a Midas touch, turning virtually everything she touches into gold—even popcorn buckets, which can fetch up to $200 USD on eBay.
