Ever heard of the movie “Barbie“? Well, get ready to be amazed because it’s been doing some incredible magic at the box office – and no, we’re not talking about pulling rabbits out of hats!
“Barbie” has just done something totally epic. It managed to beat a record set by none other than “The Dark Knight.” You know, that superhero movie that everyone was talking about back in 2008? Yep, “Barbie” waved its wand and made that record disappear!
Guess how much money “Barbie” has made so far? Brace yourself, because it’s a whopping $537.5 million! That’s like a treasure chest full of gold coins. And guess what? This is a huge deal for Warner Bros., the movie studio. It’s actually the most money they’ve ever made from a movie in the U.S. in their entire 100-year history. How crazy is that?
Okay, but let’s rewind a bit. “The Dark Knight” used to hold the crown for the highest earnings in the U.S. for Warner Bros. It raked in an impressive $534.9 million. But now, “Barbie” has come along and taken that crown for itself. It’s like a friendly competition between movies, and “Barbie” just won big time!
But wait, there’s more to this story. “Barbie” has been breaking records left and right. When it first came out, it made a splash by earning a jaw-dropping $162 million during its opening weekend. And guess what that means? It became the movie with the highest earnings for a debut from a female director. That’s a huge achievement, and it’s awesome to see female directors making waves in the movie world!
And get this – “Barbie” isn’t just breaking records in the U.S. It actually beat “Frozen II,” another super popular movie, on the charts. That means “Barbie” climbed higher on the list of movies that made the most money domestically. And who’s behind all this magic? It’s none other than Greta Gerwig, the director of “Barbie.” She’s now the top-grossing female director in the U.S., beating out even Jennifer Lee.
Now, let’s talk about the big picture. “Frozen II” made a whole lot of money globally – about $1.4 billion to be exact. While “Barbie” hasn’t reached that level yet, it’s still doing fantastic with $1.2 billion worldwide. And guess what? Greta Gerwig, the director of “Barbie,” is now the highest-grossing director for live-action movies globally. She’s even surpassed Anna Boden, who co-directed “Captain Marvel.”
Here’s the cherry on top: “Barbie” breaking all these records is even more amazing because it’s connected to another famous movie – “The Dark Knight.” Remember how we mentioned it earlier? It’s like a passing of the torch between movies, and “Barbie” is carrying it proudly.
So, there you have it – the magical journey of “Barbie” at the box office. It’s been breaking records, making history, and showing us that movies can create their own kind of magic. Who knows what other records “Barbie” will conquer next? One thing’s for sure – it’s a showstopper that’s here to stay!
“Barbie” is all set to Taking on Mario Next
Now to add glory to its journey, Barbie is stepping into Mario’s territory! “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” are two movies that couldn’t be more different, but they’ve become this crazy phenomenon. They’re like unexpected buddies, popping up in memes, sharing double feature schedules, and even raking in big bucks at the box office.
But wait, there’s more – Christopher Nolan’s super intense movie about the guy known as the father of the atomic bomb, “Oppenheimer,” is giving “Barbie” a run for its money. Even though “Oppenheimer” made around $650 million worldwide, “Barbie” is still ahead. But you know what’s awesome? Both movies doing well is a win for all of us movie fans, says Nolan.
Oh, and here’s a funny tweet: “Pls not Greta Gerwig whacking Christopher Nolan twice.” It’s like someone’s making jokes about these two directors being in a friendly competition.
But guess what? “Barbie” isn’t done yet. It’s still bringing in audiences left and right. And get this – it might even beat the “Super Mario Bros. Movie” from Universal. That movie made about $574 million in the U.S. and a whopping $1.35 billion all around the world. “Barbie” is definitely giving Mario a run for his money!
Okay, let’s talk about “Barbie’s” victory dance. It’s sitting pretty at the top of Warner Bros’ list of movies that made the most money in the U.S. But wait, the global rankings are a bit different. “Barbie” comes in second place, just behind “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” from 2011. That movie made over $1.3 billion around the world – talk about a magical movie!
So, there you have it – the epic clash between “Barbie” and Mario. It’s like these movies are having their own battle of the box office, and we’re all here for the excitement. Who knows what twists and turns this competition will bring next? One thing’s for sure – it’s a movie showdown we’ll be talking about for a long time!
