Barbie Makes History By Earning +$115 Million

It been a good week for cinema! 👏

Warner Bros.’ “Barbie” dominated the box office, raking in an impressive $155 million in ticket sales from 4,243 North American theaters. This achievement not only surpassed “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” and all Marvel movies this year, but also secured the title of the biggest opening of the year. Moreover, it set a new record for the highest-grossing opening weekend for a film directed by a woman.
Universal’s “Oppenheimer” also exceeded expectations, bringing in $80.5 million from 3,610 theaters in the U.S. and Canada. This marked Christopher Nolan’s most successful non-Batman debut and one of the strongest starts for an R-rated biographical drama.
An extraordinary occurrence unfolded as both movies debuted to remarkable numbers, with “Barbie” crossing $100 million and “Oppenheimer” surpassing $80 million in the same weekend. This combined success is likely to make it the fourth biggest box office weekend of all time, with the industrywide earnings reaching over $300 million. This remarkable feat takes place in a marketplace that has increasingly favored intellectual property-driven successes.
