Barbie ventures into the real world in new movie trailer
The new trailer for the movie “Barbie,” directed by Greta Gerwig and premiered on Thursday, May 25, offers the first full look at Barbie (Margot Robbie) and Ken (Ryan Gosling) as they leave Barbie Land to explore the “real world.”
However, things take an unexpected turn when Barbie experiences an existential crisis. She falls off a roof instead of floating as she normally does, and her heels are now flat on the floor. Barbie seeks the help of “Weird Barbie” (Kate McKinnon), who advises her to visit the “real world” to learn the truth about the universe.
Thus begins Barbie’s journey with Ken through the real world. Along the way, they encounter challenges, including being arrested, attempting an appendectomy on a human, and fleeing from the villainous Mattel CEO (Will Farrell) who wants to put Barbie “back in a box.”
The movie features a star-studded soundtrack that includes Dua Lipa, Lizzo, Haim, Tame Impala, Nicki Minaj, Karol G, and even Ryan Gosling, though his musical number did not appear in the trailer. Producer and DJ Mark Ronson is the executive music producer of the soundtrack.
“Barbie” will be released in theaters on July 21.
