Margot Robbie is making that Barbie Dream Car look real nice in the first image from Greta Gerwig’s live-action Barbie movie. The reveal was made last night during Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon. Robbie is seen in the flashy pink convertible sporting a big o’ smile, wider than I think the iconic doll has ever had.
The star-studded film boasts a ridiculous cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Hari Nef, Will Ferrell, Michael Cera, Issa Rae, Emerald Fennell, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, and many more.
Gerwig not only directs, but worked on the script with Noah Baumbach. Neither of them is known for following Hollywood traditions and I wouldn’t expect them to do that in this case, either.
Barbie has been set to open in theaters on July 21st 2023.
