It rarely happens; both films releasing in a clash tend to put on a big box office show. Riding high on extremely positive word-of-mouth, both biggies have done really well. In fact, the musical fantasy led by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling has turned out to be a huge blockbuster of 2023. On the other hand, biographical thriller is now beyond half a billion dollars.
As per Deadline’s report, Barbie has ended its third Friday on a high note by taking its collection to a massive $951 million at the worldwide box office. The film is already the second highest-grossing film of 2023, surpassing Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 ($845.31 million, reports Box Office Mojo). In overseas alone, it has hit the $500 million mark and its current earning stands at $527.7 million. The entry into the $1 billion club is bound to happen this weekend.
