A celebration of the most iconic toy brand in history, BARBIE brings the legend to the big screen for the first time ever – in an unexpected, high-wire comedy adventure, from the brilliant mind of writer/director, Greta Gerwig. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling star, along with a diverse all-star ensemble cast, in this genre-bending, hilarious story of self-discovery that brings to life the imaginations of generations of Barbie fans and captures the joyous, wonderful, messiness of being alive.
The film features an impressive ensemble cast including Will Ferrell, Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Emma Mackey, Michael Cera, Ritu Arya, Issa Rae & Ncuti Gatwa.
The highly anticipated “Barbie” live-action film adaptation will hit Australian cinemas on July 20, 2023 with Greta Gerwig and partner Noah Baumbach co-writing the script which Ryan Gosling has hailed "the best script I've ever read". Gerwig also directs the project, Barbie will be her 4th feature film following the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Little Women (2019) & Lady Bird (2017).
"Barbie is one of the most inventive, immaculately crafted and surprising mainstream films in recent memory -- a testament to what can be achieved within even the deepest bowels of capitalism."

"‘Barbie’ May Be the Most Subversive Blockbuster of the 21st Century...It’s a long commercial for a legacy corporate brand and a pretty-in-pink f*ck you to the patriarchy. It is Barbie — hear it roar"
- ROLLING STONE
"“Barbie” is a lovingly crafted blockbuster with a lot on its mind, the kind of feature that will surely benefit from repeat viewings (there is so much to see, so many jokes to catch) and is still purely entertaining even in a single watch."
"Greta Gerwig delivers a new kind of ambitious and giddily entertaining blockbuster that boasts two definitive performances from actors already in their stride. Life after Barbie will simply never be the same again."
- EMPIRE MAGAZINE
"Gerwig and her creative collaborators not only give the formerly inanimate figure a sparkling personality and a pastel-shellacked pop-art playground, they also deliver genuinely meaningful sentiments surrounding the complexities of gender politics."
