Margot Robbie is Barbie. Ryan Gosling is Ken. What more could you want from a movie? How about Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Hari Nef all playing Barbie variations, like Weird Barbie, President Barbie, and Doctor Barbie. Plus, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Simu Liu, and Ncuti Gatwa are all playing Kens. Will Ferrell plays the CEO of Mattel, the company who first brought us Barbie and her Dreamhouse.
The film focuses on what happens when the perfect doll has an existential crisis, and Mattel’s pursuit to stop Barbie from changing the real world forever. Greta Gerwig (‘Lady Bird’) directs a script she co-wrote with partner and fellow filmmaker Noah Baumbach (‘Marriage Story’).
Drop by the Dreamhouse in your pink convertible when the movie premieres in July 2023.
