About the Barbie Movie

The iconic Barbie doll came to life on the big screen in the new live-action comedy film Barbie. Directed by Greta Gerwig and co-written by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, this highly anticipated film starred Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as her longtime boyfriend Ken. 

When Barbie faced an existential crisis, she and Ken embarked on a hilarious journey of self-discovery by leaving the perfection of Barbieland and entering the messy real world.

With an all-star cast including America Ferrera, Michael Cera, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae and more, Barbie delivered laughs, adventure and empowering themes.

In Australia, the film scored the largest second week ever for a total of $30.6 million after two weekends, proving its box office dominance.
