The internet and Stanley Kubrick’s Twitter account have a lot to say in their reactions to the wild Barbie teaser trailer, which pays homage to 2001.
The new Barbie teaser trailer earns many reactions on the internet from fans as well as the Stanley Kubrick Twitter account. Since the first set photos for Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, were released online, internet users have expressed both skepticism and excitement for the Greta Gerwig-directed film. As more videos and pictures revealed glimpses of the flamboyant outfits and seemingly campy tone, enthusiasm grew for the colorful romp, with users pointing out Robbie’s perfect look as the titular doll and expressing delight at the movie’s seemingly comedic nature.
Now, the wild first teaser trailer for Barbie has dropped, paying homage to the Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey by painting Robbie’s Barbie as the monolith. The Stanley Kubrick Twitter account, run by the late filmmaker’s estate, acknowledged the trailer with a funny and appreciative post. Other internet users have commented on the Kubrick tweet as well as responded to the teaser with memes and jokes. See the tweet from Kubrick’s estate and other reactions below:
Twitter Reactions Are Promising For Barbie
Given the massive hype for Nolan’s star-studded period film Oppenheimer, Barbie opening on the same day could have been cause for concern. However, many of the Twitter reactions to the teaser have shown there will be practically no competition between the two movies since users have been vocal about their desire to watch them back to back. In addition, the many memes about viewers buying Barbie tickets in fittingly exaggerated attire suggest audiences are already planning on showing up for the movie.
Everything Revealed In The Barbie Trailer
In the teaser, more of Robbie and Gosling’s over-the-top looks are revealed, including an unexpectedly (and hilarious) dark look for Gosling’s Ken that hints at a previous tease about the character’s surprising sadness. The Barbie trailer’s homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey reveals both the epic scope of what the movie seeks to achieve as it interrogates Barbie’s legacy and the film’s tongue-in-cheek, self-referential tone. In addition to that tribute, the brief fever dream-like clips that follow offer the first detailed looks at Simu Liu, Ncuti Gatwa, Issa Rae (who appears to wear a President Barbie sash), and Kingsley Ben-Adir’s versions of Barbie and Ken.
In one of the final shots of the teaser trailer, the pastel plastic Barbie world is shown, with Robbie’s character overlooking the town. While plot details for Barbie have yet to be revealed, the trailer makes it clear that viewers are in for a wild, candy-coated ride. Barbie is a comedy exploring the Mattel doll line through a satirical, feminist lens, and the teaser proves that the cast and crew did not hold back while crafting what is sure to be every Barbie fan’s dream movie.
