The Rumors on Barbie 2
According to one of the latest Hollywood Life reports, there is a possibility of the making of a sequel for Barbie as the film has garnered critical acclaim globally. As per the same report, the live-action film has already managed to collect $22.3 million, that too from only the preview shows. So, the project is already on the verge of becoming one of the biggest blockbusters of the year.
However, there is no official report about any Barbie 2 in the making. However, rumors are rife that the project may be on the cards soon. But, the sad part is that Warner Bros, the production banner of the current movie, has not greenlit any sequel. So, the ardent fans are waiting eagerly for the production house to make an announcement on the sequel soon.
Barbie Vs Oppenheimer
This year witnessed the biggest clash at the Hollywood box office as Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie released on the same date. As expected, both movies received a humongous response from the audiences worldwide. However, it also led to what is currently called the ‘Barbenheimer,’ which is a portmanteau of the titles of the two blockbuster films Barbie and Oppenheimer. Both movies were released in theaters on the same day, July 21, 2023. The word has been used to describe the phenomenon of people seeing both films on the same day. So, this becomes a way to experience the full range of emotions that the two films offer.
The contrast between Barbie and Oppenheimer is stark. Barbie is a kafkaesque tragicomedy about the fashion doll Barbie, while Oppenheimer is a dark, gritty epic biographical thriller about physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the atomic bomb.
