Warner Bros. Drops the ‘Main Trailer’ for Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie”

The more I see of “Barbie” the more unsure I am about it. Based on the popular fashion dolls by Mattel, “Barbie” certainly seems to capture the goofy and playful spirit you might expect from such an undertaking. But with every new look we get I still find myself wondering if it’s going to be a bit too much. Like a sensory overload of bright pastels and overt silliness. The “main trailer” dropped today and it only cemented my feelings.

But as I’ve said before, in Greta I trust. Greta Gerwig is indeed directing from a script she co-wrote with Noah Baumbach. That alone is enough to get me onboard. The film’s star, Margot Robbie certainly looks, sounds, and acts the part of Barbie. The jury is still out of Ryan Gosling as Ken. Regardless there’s enough in the trailer to entice me to see it. Now here’s to hoping it delivers. We won’t have to wait long to find out.

“Barbie” hits theaters July 21st. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. Yeah we’re going to need sunglasses to take this one in. I really like that description above, ‘Free Girl’ meets cartoon Matrix. If it plays out like that, this could be a lot of fun

  2. I’ve been wondering about this one if once the novelty of the set design wears off, the general fantasy element of the story and characters might be mostly unengaging. Hopefully they pull it off.
