Greta Gerwig’s ‘Barbie’ Expected to Surpass ‘Oppenheimer’ with $110 Million Us Opening

Barbie, a parody movie made by Mattel and directed by Greta Gerwig, is set to win the highly anticipated box office battle. It is expected to open in the US with a whopping $110 million.

The movie has a budget of $145 million and stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. It is the first movie from Mattel Studios. Its release has caused a media storm and put it in competition with Christopher Nolan’s biopic Oppenheimer, which has led to the rivalry term “Barbenheimer.”

The Guardian says that Barbie’s distributor, Warner Bros., is taking a more cautious approach by predicting a $75 million US opening, but experts are much more optimistic, with some predicting that the movie could make as much as $140 million.

If predictions come true, Barbie will probably beat Wonder Woman’s record for the highest opening for a film made by a woman in the US, which is $103 million.

The story of the man who invented the atomic bomb is at the heart of Nolan’s film, which has a $100 million budget and is expected to open with $50 million in the US. It is expected to make at least $100 million worldwide.

Barbie will have an edge when it comes to how many theaters it will be shown in. It will be shown in 4,200 theaters in the US, which is 600 more than “Oppenheimer.” But Nolan’s movie has the edge when it comes to length. It’s an hour longer, so it can only be shown a few times a day. AMC, a chain of movie theaters, says that more than 40,000 people have already bought tickets to see both movies on the day they open.

Industry experts have taken notice of the competition between the two movies. Comcast analyst Paul Dergarabedian said the fight was the first of its kind.
