Barbie’ movie: Release date, cast and plot.
Barbie is officially scheduled for release on Friday, July 21, 2023.
At the moment it has not been officially announced whether Barbie will be available to stream, but as it is a Warner Bros. production, the movie will likely be available to stream via HBO Max 45 days after its cinematic release.
This means fans could be able to watch Barbie online as early as September 2023.
ust out every hot pink item in your wardrobe: “Barbie,” a star-studded cinematic re-imagining of the classic doll’s life, is officially coming to theaters.
Margot Robbie will take on the mantle as Barbie. Based on first look s, her Barbie will keep the classic bubblegum look, but add a wink.
With the undeniable wave of nostalgia crashing on pop culture these days, perhaps it’s not a surprise that the Barbie franchise has joined the trend. But the creative team behind the movie indicates that “Barbie” will be refreshingly imaginative, and hard to predict.
The movie will be directed by Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”) from a script Gerwig co-wrote with her partner Noah Baumbach.
The secrets of director Greta Gerwig’s long-anticipated film are, in fact, starting to dissolve: The Los Angeles premiere prompted a round of spoiler free (mostly positive), and the official critic review embargo is reportedly up soon. But even with the film finally accumulating eyeballs, there’s still a collective sense of protectiveness over the Barbie brouhaha.
The logline attached to the full Barbie trailer lays out an intriguing path for Ken, Barbie’s eternal boyfriend: “To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken.”
If Barbie were to cozy up to Don’t Worry Darling, the film might depict Ken growing resentful over his lesser billing beside a more successful female partner. He might even discover the real world is a rather agreeable place for cis, white, supposedly heterosexual men like himself. (Of course, we shouldn’t assume Ken’s sexuality isn’t fluid. Or that he has a sexuality! He’s a doll!) Might he then want to stay?
Even if Barbie doesn’t lay out its “men are problematic” bent quite so literally, it’s already clear Gosling’s performance is one of the best of the film. If that’s the case, there’s one hell of a debate to be had over why Ken’s character arc is so essential to our understanding of Barbie herself.
