This very week, Warner Bros. started the pre-sale in the United States, of the expected film Barbie of the filmmaker Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird, Little Women), and the protagonist and producer Margot Robbiecelebrating the occasion with a new promo interview with the main cast that you can find at the end of the note.
Likewise, the study announced that on Wednesday, July 19, 2023, preview screenings will be held in the US, prior to its release in all theaters on Friday, July 21. The great news is that tickets for the avant-premières are sold out.
In Mexico the pre-sale has not yet begun. Its release date in theaters in our country is set for July 20 at Cinépolis and Cinemex complexes.
We share the image published by Fandango, a site specialized in ticket sales to movie theaters:
“To live in Barbie land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a total existential crisis. Or be a Ken.”
Robbie is joined in the cast Ryan Gosling like ken, Simu Liu (Shang-Chi), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Dark Phoenix), Issa Rae (Insecure), Will Ferrell (The Shrink Next Door), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, Bombshell), America Ferrera (SuperStore, Ugly Betty), Michael Cera (Superbad, Juno, Life & Beth), Emerald Fennell (The Crown, Promising Young Woman), John Cena (Fast X), singer Dua Lipa playing a mermaid Barbie, and Helen Mirren as narrator.
The film will feature various versions of Barbie and Ken, from the iconic Mattel toy line.
The script was written by Gerwigand her husband, also a filmmaker Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story, The Meyerowitz Stories).
About the project, Robbie previously told THR:
“Barbie will be what you didn’t know you wanted.”
And that line accurately describes the reaction of the general audience. After seeing promotional material such as teasers and posters, the public talks about the unknown desire to see the film.
Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment is producing the film, with Mattel Films and HeyDay Films serving as co-producers.
Barbie will be released in theaters on July 20 in Mexico and the rest of Latin America, and on July 21, 2023 in the US.
