WATCH: Margot Robbie is as perfect as you’d imagine in first Barbie trailer

December 18th, 2022 by Marc Comments

I never thought I’d write these words but the trailer for the Barbie Movie is here and, well, it has our attention.

Following the success of the LEGO Movie, it’s pretty clear that, in the right hands, anything can be a rewarding watch and with Lady Bird and Little Women’s Greta Gerwig directing, we expect something fresh and interesting if nothing else. The balls on this movie using 2001 as the trailer’s inspiration is something else though lol.

The cast too is something to raise an eyebrow or two with Margot Robbie as the titular lead and Ryan Gosling as Barbie’s long-time fella, Ken. Joining them is Shang-Chi star Simu Lui, and the new Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa and, with a script that sees a doll living in Barbieworld having to leave due to her flaws, it could be something of a thinkpiece too. but I wouldn’t bet on this being the next Blade Runner.

Anyways, it has our attention and we will likely be there on 21st July, 2023 to see if it holds up.

Thoughts, gang?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
