BARBIE MOVIE TAKES THE WORLD BY STORM: A FUN-FILLED COMEDY ADVENTURE
Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling Lead Star-Studded Cast in Greta Gerwig's Directorial Marvel.
The long-awaited Barbie Movie is set to hit the screens on July 21, 2023, and it has already captivated audiences with its star-studded gala premieres in the United States, United Kingdom, and South Korea. Directed by the talented Greta Gerwig and produced by Warner Bros. Pictures, this comedic film follows Barbie, portrayed by Margot Robbie, and her real-world escapades alongside Ryan Gosling as Ken.
With a dazzling cast lineup, the movie also features Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Dua Lipa, and Ritu Arya as various versions of Barbie, each with their own unique professions. Additionally, Simu Liu, Scott Evans, and John Cena take on the role of different Ken variants, further enriching the film's diverse characters.
The production of the Barbie Movie has certainly come at a price, with a whopping USD 145 million invested. Translated into Indonesian Rupiah at the current exchange rate of 15,006 per USD, the film's budget amounts to approximately Rp 2.17 trillion.
The screenplay was penned by Greta herself, along with Noah Baumbach providing assistance, ensuring a captivating story for the leading duo, Robbie and Gosling. However, making the film even more memorable, Robbie tempted Gosling with daily gifts during filming to accept the role of Ken. Gosling confessed, "I received so many gifts...She kept her promise and provided Ken-themed surprises every day, from puka shell necklaces to horse-themed lunch boxes," he chuckled.
Despite receiving some critiques for its multiple portrayals of Barbie, the film has struck a delightful balance between silliness and seriousness, as described by Ann Hornaday from the Washington Post. The Barbie Movie offers an array of interpretations, from stereotypical to powerful, showcasing Barbie in various roles such as a president, doctor, lawyer, and even some bizarre ones.
Reviews from The Australian dubbed the film "wildly insane" but recognized that perhaps it's exactly what the world needs right now. On the other hand, New Statesman's critique was more negative, citing the film's feminism as lacking substance.
In Indonesia, the Barbie Movie debuted on July 19, 2023, starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Simu Liu, and Kate McKinnon, among others, creating an unforgettable cinematic experience for audiences worldwide.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #Barbie Movie #Greta Gerwig #Margot Robbie #Ryan Gosling #Comedy #Gala Premiere #Warner Bros.
