Barbie Expected To Pass $1 Billion This Weekend, Fulfilling Margot Robbie’s Prediction

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie continues to soar, and it’s expected to pass $1 billion this weekend at the box office. It’ll be a nice birthday weekend celebration for Gerwig, who celebrates her 40th birthday today, August 4. The film currently stands at around $900 million worldwide.

According to Deadline’s sources, Barbie could hit $1 billion in global office receipts on Sunday, or potentially Monday. Barbie is projected to earn about $55 million in the US this weekend, which would represent a solid third weekend for the film.

International box office figures this weekend should push Barbie beyond $1 billion, becoming just the second film this year to earn $1 billion. The first was The Super Mario Bros. Movie, which made $1.35 billion at the global box office and remains 2023’s No. 1 movie.

Barbie star Margot Robbie told Collider that in the original pitch meeting for the film, she said Barbie had the potential to make $1 billion–and now that’s happening.

“I think my pitch in the green-light meeting was the studios have prospered so much when they’re brave enough to pair a big idea with a visionary director,” she said. “And then I gave a series of examples like, ‘dinosaurs and [Steven] Spielberg,’ that and that, that and that–pretty much naming anything that’s been incredible and made a ton of money for the studios over the years. And I was like, ‘And now you’ve got Barbie and Greta Gerwig.’ And I think I told them that it’d make a billion dollars, which maybe I was overselling, but we had a movie to make, okay?!”

Barbie will face new competition this weekend at the box office from turtles and sharks. TMNT: Mutant Mayhem and Meg 2: The Trench are in theaters now, and are expected to do reasonably well. What’s more, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is projected to have another solid weekend, pushing its global results beyond $500 million.

Barbie is now the highest-grossing movie directed by a woman of all time. Patty Jenkins previously held the record with Wonder Woman, which made $822 million globally back in 2017.
