The release date (at least in the United States) of the Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie has been confirmed. Directed by Greta Gerwig (Little Women, 2019), the film will hit theaters on July 21, 2023.
The date draws attention because it is the same weekend that Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s next film, is already scheduled. Clearly we can assume that the audiences for both films are different, but it also speaks to the confidence that Warner has in Greta Gerwig’s project.
Although there are few details about the plot, the image shows us Margot Robbie as Barbie smiling in her classic pink convertible.
With a script written by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, the Barbie movie will also star Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Simu Liu and Will Ferrell.
According to commented Variety, in 2021 Margot Robbie spoke about the challenges of bringing Barbie to the big screen in live action. She “she has a lot of baggage and a lot of nostalgic connections. But she is very exciting. People listen to ‘Barbie’ and think they already know what kind of movie it’s going to be. But then they hear that Greta Gerwig is going to direct it and they think, ‘Well, maybe I don’t know.
In addition to the Barbie movie, other Mattel properties coming to screens soon include: Masters of the Universe, Polly Pocket and Hot Wheels.
