Los Angeles, United States, Aug 28 (EFE).- “Barbie,” the Greta Gerwig film inspired by the famous doll, became the highest grossing film in Warner Bros. surpassing $1.34 billion at the box office, more than “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” according to the Box Mojo Office page.
The title of the most lucrative film from the studios had been held until then by the film starring Daniel Radcliffe, which grossed $1.34 billion during 25 weeks in 2011.
Now it is expected that for Wednesday or Thursday of this week “Barbie” will become the 13th film in history to exceed the $600 million collection in the United States.
The film starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken has broken other records before, such as the most lucrative film directed solely by a woman in history.
Last week, Barbie surpassed “Super Mario Bros. The Movie” at the domestic box office to become the highest-grossing title of 2023 in North America.
It is also expected to become the highest grossing film of the year worldwide and for this it would have to exceed the $1.36 billion dollars made by the film based on the Nintendo character.
The last step for the film to be crowned as the most lucrative of all time directed by a woman, would be to surpass the 1.43 billion that “Frozen II,” the film directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck. EFE
