Fans have gone wild for the new Barbie movie trailer, which has already racked up nearly 7m views since landing yesterday.
Warner Bros. has released its highly anticipated full trailer for the upcoming Barbie movie, which arrives in cinemas 21st July.
Starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken, the movie is a satirical take on the iconic fashion doll, directed by Greta Gerwig and based on a script she wrote with Noah Baumbach. The new 2.48 trailer – which follows the release of the first teaser trailer back in December and the second in April this year – sheds more light on the plot of the film, which sees Barbie expelled from Barbieland for being a less than perfect-looking doll. Accompanied by an enthusiastic yet similarly naïve Ken, Barbie sets off for the human world to find true happiness.
In the trailer, Ken is sexist to a female doctor, while Barbie ruins a choreographed dance party with a deep and meaningful question, has to choose between a high heel and a Birkenstock, goes skateboarding in California, punches someone in the face, gets arrested, is involved in a car chase, and, worst of all – develops flat feet. The trailer also pays homage to Ruth Mosko Handler, the designer of Barbie.
Fans have gone wild for the new trailer, which has done nothing but ramp up excitement for the July movie launch. Alongside Margot and Ryan, the cast of the film also includes as Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Michael Cera, America Ferrera, Ncuti Gatwa, Emerald Fennell, Rhea Perlman and Kingsley Ben-Adir.
The trailer release was accompanied by news of the official movie soundtrack, Barbie: The Album. The first single, Dua Lipa’s ‘Dance the Night’, drops later today. The full album can be pre-ordered here.
