Margot Robbie is making her first introduction as Barbie in the real world, and is ready to discover the truth about the universe, in the newly released official main for the upcoming adventure comedy based on the Mattel iconic doll. Warner Bros. unveiled the trailer today, in anticipation of ‘Barbie’s distribution in theaters on July 21, 2023.
The film focuses on Barbie and her boyfriend, Ken, as they become stuck in the real world. While there, the titular doll has an existential crisis as she discovers the challenges of being a live woman. Ryan Gosling stars opposite Robbie in the movie as Ken.
Along with Robbie and Gosling, ‘Barbie’s star-studded cast includes Will Ferrell, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Nicola Coughlan, Emerald Fennell, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Ncuti Gatwa, Issa Rae, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, Sharon Rooney, Scott Evans, Ana Cruz Kayne, Ritu Arya and Jamie Demetriou. Hari Nef (‘And Just Like That,’ ‘You’) and Alexandra Shipp (‘Tick, Tick … Boom!’) also have supporting roles in the movie.
‘Barbie’ was directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Greta Gerwig, who also co-wrote the script with Noah Baumbach. The feature is a co-production by Mattel Films, Heyday Films and Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment banner with Tom Ackerley. LuckyChap’s Josey McNamara and Mattel’s Ynon Kreiz are serving as executive producers on the comedy. The movie was shot in London last year.
