Warner Bros. notified Variety last month that the Margot Robbie-Ryan Gosling picture will be shown in IMAX.
“We made ‘Barbie’ for the big screen, so it’s a thrill to be able to bring it to Imax, the biggest screen of all,” Gerwig said, per the statement. “As a special thanks to ‘Barbie’ fans, we’re excited to share a little bit more of our cast and crew’s incredible work by adding special new footage we hope audiences will enjoy.”
Started on July 21 (the same day as “Oppenheimer”), “Barbie” has been an enormous hit and has already become the 15th highest-grossing movie of all time, excluding inflation.
“Barbie” has surpassed Christopher Nolan’s 2008 blockbuster “The Dark Knight” to become Warner Bros.’ most successful film ever in the US. That could be an especially difficult pill for the filmmaker to swallow—he also produced “Oppenheimer.” CEO Of the Anti-Defamation League Replies To Elon Musks Threats
Furthermore, Gerwig’s film has become Warner’s highest-grossing picture ever, surpassing the $1.31 billion earned by the last “Harry Potter” film in 2011.
Box Office Mojo reports that Nolan’s most recent three-hour epic has brought in $853 million at the box office. Though “The Dark Knight Rises” took $1.08 billion in 2012, it could find it difficult to top that amount.
In the meanwhile, Greta Gerwig could win the title of highest-grossing female director of a motion picture. The title is held by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck’s “Frozen II,” which brought in $1.46 billion in revenue in 2019.
Not unexpectedly, “Barbie” is Robbie and Gosling’s most commercially successful movie to date. According to The Tab, Ryan Gosling’s highest grossing film was “Blade Runner 2049,” which brought in $32.8 million, while the Australian actor’s biggest hit to date was “Suicide Squad,” which brought in $133.7 million.
It’s an incredible run for a film that few predicted would become a blockbuster. Despite having a massive marketing spend that exceeded the cost of making the picture.
