‘Barbie’ Officially Becomes Highest-Grossing Movie In The World 2023

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie legitimately surpassed The Super Mario Bros. Movie at the worldwide box office Saturday, given to Variety, becoming the world’s highest-grossing movie this year after more than a month in theaters.

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, which was released on the same day as Barbie and benefited from the “Barbenheimer” double nose phenomena, became the No. 2 highest-grossing rated-R film of all time this week. Oppenheimer sits more than $200 million behind Todd Phillips’ Joker today, rendering to Box Office Mojo.

Several record-breaking milestones have characterized this movie’s box office accomplishment. The show had this year’s highest-grossing opening weekend with $162 million in gross sales in its primary three days in theaters. Its performance also made Gerwig the highest-grossing female director in the U.S. The movie would have likely reached its milestones faster had it not been disqualified in a handful of countries, including Algeria, Kuwait, and Vietnam, the former of which pulled Barbie from theaters over opposition to the movie’s gender and sexuality themes.

ComicBook.com’s Nicole Drum gave Barbie a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars. In her review, Drum writes, “It is rather possibly Gerwig’s best film to date. It is insightful, hilarious, and packed with kind commentary and an incredible amount of Easter eggs in addition to one-liners that will reward audiences of every age and opinion on it, not just on the first watch but on numerous rewatches.

Barbie pulls off the near-impossible task of taking what could have been merely a capitalist IP-driven cash grab and turning it into a celebration of and commentary on culture that gives the audience permission and inspiration to challenge not only everything they think it represents but what the world asks of us meager humans as well so that we never go back into the box again.”
