Anticipation Grows for Upcoming Film Barbie Starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling

News - 24 June 2023

In just a few weeks, the highly anticipated film Barbie will finally be hitting theaters. Director Greta Gerwig had previously expressed surprise that Warner Bros. had greenlit the project, and as the trailers continue to generate buzz, audiences are eager to see what the film has in store.

Currently in the midst of its promotional campaign, it is clear that Margot Robbie, who plays the titular character Barbie, is at the forefront of the marketing efforts, with Ryan Gosling taking on the role of Ken.One interesting aspect of the film's promotion is the release of individual country-specific posters. In France, the poster has caught the attention of many with its ambiguous messaging.

The French text reads "Elle peut tout faire," which translates to "She can do everything" in English. The corresponding English text reads "She's everything," giving a slightly different connotation. Moving on to Ken, the French text reads "Lui, c'est juste Ken," which translates to "He's just Ken" in English.

However, the word "Ken" in French also means "playing around," adding a new layer of meaning to the poster. When both sentences are combined, the message becomes even more perplexing, suggesting a relationship between Barbie and Ken that revolves around different priorities. The ensemble cast of Barbie includes Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Alexandra Shipp, Dua Lipa, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Simu Liu, Scott Evans, and John Cena, all portraying various characters in the film.

Dutch audiences can look forward to the film's release in their local cinemas starting on July 19.Overall, the excitement surrounding Barbie continues to build as the release date approaches. With a star-studded cast and a whimsical storyline, audiences are in for a treat with this imaginative comedy.
