DID THE WORLD REALLY RUN OUT OF PINK PAINT? As any Barbie fan knows, life in plastic is fantastic — and also very pink.
So much so, in fact, that the makers of the top grossing live-action movie say they wiped out a company's entire global supply of one shade of it in production.
In 2023, the world witnessed a cinematic phenomenon that surprised both critics and audiences – the Barbie movie. The Barbie movie shattered box office records, amassing an astonishing $1.2 billion worldwide beating out even Oppenheimer. This makes it not only the highest-grossing film of the year but also one of the top-grossing movies in recent memory.
What started as a summer feel-good, fantasy romp has surpassed expectations with wicked satire and surprising depth that sparked conversation. It's not just a chick flick and this is why men should care. The Barbie movie, a riotous fantasy romp with sometimes laugh-out-loud moments not only emerged as the top-grossing film of the year, but it also inspired discussions on social implications for kids, women, men and the doll world/real world culture clash. It empowers children to dream big, women to break barriers, and men to redefine masculinity.
