Excorswift? Blumhouse has moved it's premiere date up a week for 'The Exorcist: Believer's' opening weekend due to recent news that a Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour film will be hitting theaters too!

"Look what you made me do," Exorcist producer Jason Blum (tweeted) on X, formerly Twitter.

Advance tickets for Swift's Era's movie have already sold over $10 million worth, blowing away any other films to debut the same week. Not to mention, Taylor can promote it! The “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour” concert film will debut on movie screens on Friday, Oct. 13, the pop star shared in tweet on Thursday.

AMC said in a news release that it upgraded its website in anticipation of high demand, so anticipate at least some wait if you’re looking to purchase tickets. AMC Theatres is giving priority to Taylor Swift's movie, limiting showtimes for other films and not even giving priority treatment to their Stubs A-List members. The total run time of the show is two hours and 45 minutes.

Exactly 50 years ago this fall, the most terrifying horror film in history landed on screens, shocking audiences around the world. A new chapter begins from Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green, comes The Exorcist: Believer.

Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding (Tony winner and Oscar® nominee Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in Miami, Hamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett, Good Girls) on his own.

But when Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia O’Neill), disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.

For the first time since the 1973 film, Oscar® winner Ellen Burstyn reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil, an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.

The film also stars Emmy winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary) as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, and Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles (Harriet, The Righteous Gemstones) and two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon, Bloodline) as the parents of Katherine, Angela’s friend.

The Exorcist: Believer is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by Peter Sattler (Camp X-Ray) and David Gordon Green, from a story by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills), Danny McBride (Halloween trilogy) and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by William Peter Blatty.

The film is produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse and by David Robinson and James G. Robinson for Blumhouse x Morgan Creek Entertainment.

The 'The Exorcist: Believer's' will be hitting theaters October 16th!
