Margot is anticipated to make a staggering $50 million as part of a contract that includes her pay and back-end box office bonuses, according to Variety. Notably, Barbie has surpassed $1 billion in box office revenue worldwide. $526.3 million at the US box office and $657.6 million internationally have been grossed by the film. As long as the movie does well, the earnings should rise even more.
Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” competed at the box office, although “Oppenheimer” won in terms of worldwide revenue. Additionally, the film broke other records.
Greta Gerwig, who directed the live-action film Barbie, broke a record for the highest-grossing female filmmaker of all time. In terms of box office revenue, Barbie is second only to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 from 2011 in Warner Bros.
The movie was produced by Margot through LuckyChap Entertainment, a business she co-founded in 2014 with her now-husband Tom, as well as their friends Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr. It’s interesting to note that director Margot wanted actress Gal Gadot to play Barbie in the primary role. Margot was persuaded to take on the job herself by Gerwig.
“I never wanted to play Barbie or had any similar fantasies of being Barbie. I know that seems ridiculous, but I actually didn’t even consider playing Barbie until years into the project’s development,” Margot had said to Vogue in May.
On July 21, 2023, Barbie and Oppenheimer were both released in India and the US. Fans combined the names of the two films and created the “Barbenheimer” craze, which ultimately contributed to the immense popularity of both films.
