This season box office results :

Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig, debuted to a record-breaking $162 million domestically, a figure normally reserved for superhero movies starring men or blockbuster franchises like the final Harry Potter film. It well above the $90 million to $110 million forecast and contributed to one of the largest weekends in history. The ultimate total of $162 million exceeded Sunday’s already incredible $155 million by a substantial amount.

Barbie, which brings to life Mattel’s famous fashion doll, is also garnering significant attention abroad. From 70 markets, the film debuted to an amazing $182 million. In significant areas like Mexico ($22.3 million), Brazil ($15.9 million), and Australia ($14.6 million), it had the greatest opening ever for a WB title. The studio’s largest performance since the pandemic, the U.K. took the top spot with $22.9 million. Barbie did better than predicted in China with $8.2 million, but it wasn’t anticipated to make a significant effect in Asian countries.

 

Barbie had the highest domestic opening weekend ever in North America for a female director, solo or otherwise. The sole reign was last held by Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which debuted in 2017 with a domestic opening weekend gross of $103.3 million. 2019 saw a $153 million debut for the Captain Marvel film, which was directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.In addition, Barbie broke a number of other records, topping The Super Mario Bros. Movie ($146.3 million) in the year 2023’s opening weekend. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse ($120.7 million), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 ($118.4 million), and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania ($106.9 million) were the next closest 2023 releases. Otherwise, many films have failed to surpass the $100 million threshold.

Not that Universal’s Oppenheimer is a dud. With $82.4 million (up from Sunday’s projection of $80.5 million), the three-hour, R-rated historical drama about J. Robert Oppenheimer and the creation of the atomic bomb also performed far better than forecasts. Not accounting for inflation, that is the director’s third-largest domestic premiere, trailing only The Dark Knight Rises ($160.9 million) and The Dark Knight ($158.4 million). Ahead of previous summer movies like The Flash, Elemental, and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, it will also perform well.

Mission: Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One, starring Tom Cruise, isn’t having it easy thanks to director John Frankenheimer. The movie’s domestic gross dropped sharply by 64 percent to $19.5 million for a $118.8 million total. It performed better abroad, earning an additional $55 million from 72 markets for a total of $252.1 million abroad and $370.9 million worldwide.
