‘Barbie’ trailer featuring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling is here
There is little doubt that ‘Barbie’ is one of the most anticipated films of the year, either because of the hope of seeing a one-of-a-kind feature film that satisfies our needs or, quite simply, out of pure unhealthy morbidity. But if after its first trailer, you still don’t have it marked on your calendar, the new trailer that has just been released – and that is priceless – may change your mind.
After paying tribute in his own way to ‘2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick, the feature film directed by Greta Gerwig —’ Lady Bird, ‘Little Women’— and co-written by her and her partner Noah Baumbach —’ Frances Ha’— begins to bring out the artillery with just over a minute and a half loaded with pastel colors, a sense of humor as peculiar as one would expect and a stellar cast.
A star-studded cast for a diverse universe
In the summer movie, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling are in charge of giving life to the Barbie and Ken protagonists in a universe full of the most diverse Barbies and Kens in which performers of the stature of Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, America also participate Ferrera, Issa Rae, Michael Cera, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Nicola Coughlan, Emerald Fennell and a Will Ferrell who will give life to a toy executive, a villain of the show.
Gerwig on tackling the iconic license
During an episode of Dua Lipa’s ‘At Your Service’ podcast — rumored to have a cameo and potential soundtrack single — Gerwig spoke this way about tackling a project like this based on such an iconic license: “I think there’s something about starting from there that’s like, ‘Well, anything is possible!’ I felt a kind of vertigo going into writing it, like ‘Where do I start? What would the story be? I think the one I got was a really interesting sense of horror. That’s usually where you get the best out of it. When you’re like, ‘I’m terrified.’ When you’re like, ‘This could end my career,’ and then, ‘Okay, I probably should.'”
Expectations rise with big dance scenes
In addition, Simu Liu has anticipated that we can expect a good number of “big and complex dance scenes”, raising even more expectations for a potential bombshell that will hit our theaters on July 21, competing directly with the ‘Oppenheimer’ by Christopher Nolan. An ideal combination for a double session capable of melting our brains due to the contrast.
If you’re still not excited after reading about the cast and the promises of the trailer, then it’s definitely time to mark your calendars for ‘Barbie’ as it makes its way to theaters this summer.
