'Barbie' trailer: Even Barbie has an existential crisis sometimes
We finally know what the Barbie movie is about — sort of.
The long-awaited trailer for the Barbie movie is finally here, and it looks absolutely DIVINE. Starring Margot Robbie as our favorite blonde babe and beloved doll, the Barbie movie sees its eponymous heroine experiencing an existential crisis — what? The lavish pink world of beach blowouts and synchronized choreography apparently aren’t enough to keep our Barbie from thinking about, wait for it, death. And something sinister is afoot in Barbie’s life; she can’t float off her rooftop AND her heels are on the ground?! Curious and in a desperate need to find herself again, Barbie’s left with no option but to explore the so-called Real World for some answers.
What lies beyond the pearly pink gates? Barbie … and Ken (Ryan Gosling) … are about to find out.
The star-studded cast includes Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, and Kate McKinnon, just for starters. The STUNNING soundtrack list just dropped, and it features Lizzo, Charli XCX, Ryan Gosling (!), Dua Lipa, as well as what seems to be a remix of Aqua’s ’90s classic “Barbie Girl,” featuring Nicki Minaj and Ice Spice. (This is despite initial reports there would be a serious lack of Aqua in the movie! What can’t Greta Gerwig do?) Barbie is going to be THE film of the summer (sorry not sorry, Oppenheimer).
Barbie releases in theaters on July 21.
