Since last week, after we’ve been obsessively watching the new Barbie teaser, we’ve been mentally preparing to make Greta Gerwig’s latest film our entire personality. Who are we kidding? We’re already there. It’s all we can think about, and it’s safe to say that no matter next year’s lineup, this is our most anticipated film of the year.
In the short but beautifully compelling (words have been chosen carefully, we mean what we’re saying here) Barbie teaser, Margot Robbie proves that since the wonderful world of Pan Am, she can own any role like no other. Plus, after Gerwig gave us our favorite adaptation of Little Women, we know for a fact that this movie is going to own us in a way unlike anything else.
The film also stars Ryan Gosling, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Will Farrell, Helen Mirren, Simu Liu, Connor Swindells, Nicola Coughlan, Michael Cera, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Rhea Perlman, Emerald Fennell, America Ferrera, Ritu Arya, and more. The studded cast is bound to make a lasting impression, unlike any other film that will release next year. There’s plenty that we still need to learn, but every new arising information makes it more and more apparent that the film is already our favorite thing to exist.
The film is set to release on July 23, 2023 (which is an unsurprisingly perfect date), alongside Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, making every film buff’s summer at the cinemas something that we’ll talk about for years to come. While there’s no official synopsis quite yet, we’ll continue waiting for new trailers to see where the film goes. Regardless, no matter the storyline, we’re already here for the visuals, cast, and at the same time, the intriguing homages to 2001 Space Odyssey.
Watch the Barbie teaser below and come scream about its perfection with us in the comments.
