The teaser for “Barbie” opens with a scene in the Outback. We see little girls playing with dolls. The voiceover reads, “Since the dawn of time, since the first child, there have been dolls. But dolls have always been baby dolls. Until now.” This is followed by a clip showing viewers Margot Robbie as the iconic Barbie winking at the little girls.
The whole scene is a clear nod to the beginning of Stanley Kubrick’s book 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which monkeys discover the use of bones as weapons. We also hear the same symphonic poem, “Too Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss. Later, the creators show us on the screen a mixture of colorful, fast and pompous scenes from the film.
Barbie is a project that everyone has been talking about for years. It is interesting not only the theme itself, but also the fact that the screenplay for the picture was written by the director-couple: Greta Gerwig, author of “Little Woman” (Oscar nomination for the screenplay), “Lady Bird” or “Francis Ha” and Noah Baumbach, an administrator, among others Another, award-winning story of marriage.
The fact that Margot Robbie will play the main character in “Barbie” was already known when the project was announced, but Gerwig had been looking for Ken for a long time. Signed to Ryan Gosling (“Drive”, “La La Land”, “Loves, Likes, Respect”, “The Notebook”). The cast also includes America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Simo Liu, and Emma Mackie.
Very little is known about the plot of the picture – it is kept in the strictest confidence. However, some time ago, the first pictures of the picture appeared on the Web, showing what the main characters look like in their roles.
