Barbie is ready to party contemplate her own mortality.
A new trailer for Greta Gerwig's highly-anticipated Barbie movie has dropped,
and in it, the titular doll—played by Margot Robbie—is getting existential.
In the trailer, Barbie is questioning everything after a cold shower, falling off her roof, and losing her perfectly arched feet.
Soon enough, Robbie's Barbie is confronted by Kate McKinnon's more weathered Barbie doll and given a choice
she can stay in Barbieland, or throw on a pair of Birkenstocks and venture out into the real world to “know the truth about the universe.
Robbie revealed that Gerwig has been taking Barbie very, very seriously, sending Robbie episodes of This American Life
writing abstract poetry about the doll.
The film is partly inspired by the 1994 bestseller Reviving Ophelia,
a book about a shift that happens to American girls once they hit puberty.
