Barbie: Trailer Talk

While my sister’s childhood included Barbie dolls, mine was filled with Batman, Power Rangers and Pokémon. And, while I did own a Barbie doll, I was more interested in the forementioned toys. So, when the cast for a live action ‘Barbie’ movie was announced, I couldn’t help but roll my eyes. While Margot Robbie (The Suicide Squad, I Tonya) sounded like a good fit for the titular character, Ryan Gosling (Drive, La La Land) seemed like a strange choice to cast as Ken. 

But the trailer is honestly fantastic. The plot hasn’t been revealed, so fans are instead treated to a re-enactment of the opening to 1968’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, except instead of monkeys with clubs, it’s little girls with baby dolls. It’s a great tongue-in-cheek scene that hopefully represents the tone the film will go for: a satirical look at the Barbie franchise, but a fun film. And, of course, the film looks vibrant and colourful with lots of pink! While it is a bit of an eyesore, it’s also an impressive aesthetic that represents the doll brand perfectly. 



While I was never a Barbie fan, I am curious especially after seeing the trailer, and I’m hoping the film will have a humorous tone to it.
