Barbie’s Billion Dollar Dream

Barbie proves it’s more than child’s play! The movie, based on the iconic Mattel doll, rakes in over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office! The massive milestone hits as the popular film rolls up on its third week in theaters.

This groundbreaking achievement is historic and next level for both the movie and its director. Oscar-nominated Greta Gerwig is the first solo female director to top the $1 billion box office mark AND Barbie is the second movie this year to earn $1 billion in ticket sales. The first was Super Mario Brothers.

This Barbie girl got all of the nostalgic feels the moment the opening scene filled the big screen! Magically, Barbie and her dream world come to life fabulously popping in pink.

Barbie is a pop culture phenomenon. It’s diverse cast of all-stars layers strong support to Margot Robbie in the title role and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Solid performances by Issa Rae as the no-nonsense President Barbie, Simu Liu as the trash-talking Ken and America Ferrera, who drops a transformative monologue, as a Mattel employee, add to the films record-breaking accomplishment.

The Barbie movie is definitely one to see. It’s so much more than a movie about a doll. It’s fun, uplifting and has heart. Barbie’s journey to self-discovery is very relatable. It’s a multi-generational film that entertains the adults and the youngins.

Cha-Ching! That’s the sound of Barbie’s huge worldwide success. The long-awaited movie has sales numbers still soaring! The creative promotions and the fun pink take-over events helped fill theater seats. However, the buzz of the film’s storyline, positive and empowering messages are what continues to make Barbie a massive box office draw.

The Covert Narcissist

There’s a duality to a narcissist’s personality. They mask themselves into whomever they need to be seen as while slowly exposing their true colors exclusively to you.
