Finally we have a live-action teaser trailer of the upcoming Barbie movie starring the ubiquitous Margot Robbie. Crisply narrated by Helen Mirren, the trailer shows little girls playing with simple baby dolls, in a barren, land before time wasteland. When Barbie appears like a mysterious monolith, the kids are filled with shock and awe. We then get a cacophony of bright pink glimpses of Barbie Land, Ryan Gosling’s washboard-abs Ken, and Simu Liu doing a jig. A tease for sure. But with Greta Gerwig behind the camera, and penned by Gerwig and Noah Baumbach, you bet I want more!
SYNOPSIS: Barbie lives in Barbie Land and then a story happens. (I don’t know if that is an “official” synopsis, as it was cribbed from IMDB, but it made me laugh nonetheless!)
Barbie is coming to theaters July 21, 2023.
