Earlier this week, Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s pink fantasy comedy landed eight Academy Award nominations, including best picture and supporting acting nods for Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera.
Warner Bros.’ president of domestic distribution, Jeff Goldstein, and head of international distribution, Andrew Cripps, said of the re-release: “We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we’ve never seen anything like the absolute cultural phenomenon that is ‘Barbie.’ This masterful vision for Mattel’s doll could only have come from the creative minds of Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, and in Greta’s hands, ‘Barbie’ became a must-go, must-see, must-wear-pink cinematic experience that was a brilliantly subversive commentary on our society, couched in an undeniably entertaining story.”
Their statement continues, “Greta and the film’s producers, artisans and cast, especially Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera, delivered a one-of-a-kind film that we know will be viewed and talked about for years to come. We’re proud to have it as part of the Warner library of classics, and are excited to give moviegoers another chance to experience ‘Barbie’ on the big screen.”
Two months after its initial July 21 release, “Barbie” secured a one-week Imax run in September, which featured exclusive new post-credits footage selected by Gerwig.
With more than $1.4 billion at the global box office, “Barbie” is Warner Bros.’ highest-grossing movie of all time. Among many other records, it’s also the highest-grossing film by a solo female director in history.
