The film Barbie exceeds expectations with a turnover of 1.4 billion US dollars. It makes sense that Margot Robbie would walk away with it, because in addition to being the star and co-producer, she is also the one who pushed for the film to be made.
Yet she recently made fans very angry by here at one Barbiepanel of Deadline Contenders saying: “Greta Gerwig is truly a game changer. From now on, the world will be different because of what she has done.”
Great films by women
Margot meant it for inspiration when she continued: “If someone else has an original idea, with a female lead, and needs a big budget, they point to Barbie and get permission.”
But people promptly say below in the DiscussionFilms discussion on X (Twitter) that Margot is wrong. Sitting in front of her movie Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel already close to 1 billion. Women also have leading roles in those films.
Not an original idea
In addition, Margot’s film would benefit from the fame of the Barbie doll, which makes it really not a very original idea. A critic also says that it takes more to change the world. In any case, it is clear: So many people, so many opinions.
