New Barbie Trailer: Bright Worlds and Existential Crisis!
Warner Bros. has unveiled the main trailer for the much-awaited “Barbie” movie, offering viewers an extended peek into the bright, pink world of Barbie, played by Margot Robbie. Directed by Greta Gerwig, the film showcases a vibrant Barbie Land filled with pink cars, houses, palm trees, and grand parties coming on July 21st.
The trailer opens with Ken, portrayed by Ryan Gosling, asking Barbie if he could join her at a house party. What follows are scenes of Barbie and Ken dancing to a new song by Dua Lipa, and Barbie driving around Barbie Land in her pink convertible. But amidst the celebrations, Barbie goes through what appears to be an existential crisis, an unexpected twist that adds depth to her character and sets the tone for the rest of the film.
Aside from Robbie and Gosling, the movie features an ensemble cast playing different versions of Barbies and Kens. The Barbie line-up includes Ritu Arya, Nicola Coughlan, Ana Cruz Kayne, Dua Lipa, Emma Mackey, Kate McKinnon, Hari Nef, Issa Rae, Sharon Rooney, and Alexandra Shipp. Kingsley Ben-Adir, Scott Evans, Ncuti Gatwa, and Simu Liu step into the shoes of Ken.
As is tradition, the film’s album features tracks from several artists, including Ava Max, Charli XCX, Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, HAIM, and more. While the music does add to the film’s allure, it’s still a question if it will boost overall enthusiasm for the movie.
Despite the big names and the vibrant world presented in the “Barbie” trailer, excitement is also building for a different kind of film: “Oppenheimer.” With Christopher Nolan at the helm and an equally star-studded cast featuring Cillian Murphy, the upcoming film based on the development of the atomic bomb promises an intense historical thriller that seems to be drawing more buzz from audiences.
