Margot Robbie, both a lead actress and producer of the upcoming Barbie movie, faced an unexpected existential crisis during rehearsals. However, co-star America Ferrera’s character lines came to the rescue, granting Robbie a liberating release from her anxieties. The $145 million film, spearheaded by Warner Bros. and directed by Greta Gerwig, follows the iconic doll Barbie as she undergoes a profound existential shift during a dance number. This leads her to step out of her perfect pink plastic world, immersing her in the complexities of the real human world.
The long-awaited Barbie movie, set to debut on Friday, is expected to make a splash in US theaters, with projections of surpassing $100 million in its opening weekend. Despite Barbie’s existence for over six decades, it has taken this long to bring the character to the big screen. Margot Robbie believes the movie’s message is crucial for today’s audience, highlighting the pressure on people to be perfect and do everything, which is ultimately unattainable.
Robbie’s aspiration for the film is to offer a gift to the audience, enabling them to let go of their worries and embrace the joy of the experience. Co-star Ryan Gosling, who plays the role of Ken, describes the movie as an amusement park with something for everyone, ensuring a unique and enjoyable ride for all viewers. As the much-anticipated film draws closer to its release, audiences eagerly anticipate Barbie’s journey of self-discovery and the valuable lessons it has to offer.
