Barbie has made history. There is no longer anyone who dares to question it. The Barbenheimer winner has become much more than the phenomenon of this summer and has risen to the top of the rankings and box office tops in the history of Warner Bros.
This week we found out, in addition to its release date for streaming. The fact that the film has already surpassed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 as Warner’s most successful film. A success which no film after 2020 had managed and with which the last installment of The Hobbit (The Battle of the Five Armies) got booted off the list.
It’s expected then that with such a journey Mattel has announced the Barbie Universe (with 13 movies based on famous toys) and that even Cillian Murphy wants to be in Barbie 2. Yes, we are talking about Oppenheimer’s big star and presumable Oscar candidate for Best Actor in this year’s awards race.
