Barbie’s reign at the box office may come to an end this weekend as Blue Beetle from DC Studios is expected to overtake Barbie as the top film in the country.

Blue Beetle is anticipated to have a $28 million to $32 million opening weekend. Barbie, on the other hand, is anticipating a fourth-weekend box office of between $22 million and $24 million. Since its debut on July 21, Barbie has been a box office powerhouse, dominating the domestic box office every weekend.

Blue Beetle’s box office tracking has been progressively growing in recent weeks. The renowned living doll will be overtaken by Blue Beetle, which will accomplish what Haunted Mansion, Meg 2: The Trench, and The Last Voyage of the Demeter couldn’t in their respective opening weekends.

Blue Beetle’s production cost stands at $125 million and is the third of four DC films to open theatrically in 2023. It hopes to avoid the same fate as the comic book studio’s two previous box office flops, “Shazam: Fury of the Gods,” which underperformed forecasts with a $30.1 million opening in March, and “The Flash,” which underperformed in June with a $55 million opening. The studio’s new heads James Gunn and Peter Safran intend to take the ailing comic book universe in a whole different path after “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” a sequel to the $1 billion 2018 blockbuster, debuts in December.

All About DC’s “Blue Beetle”

Blue Beetle stars a Mexican American boy named Jaime Reyes who discovers a mysterious robotic scarab that fuses with his spine and grants him the ability to call forth a potent suit of armor. Although at first glance this would seem like a good thing, Jaime rapidly learns that the beetle has its own mind and occasionally has the power to dominate him instead of the other way around. The director, writer, and practically the entire cast of Blue Beetle, the first Latinx superhero in DC to receive their own feature film, are all Latinx.

As part of former DC Films president Walter Hamada’s DCEU plans, the next film was initially intended for a direct-to-streaming release on HBO Max. However, Blue Beetle will now hit theaters and has been retrospectively added to the plans for where Gunn and Safran are bringing the DCU.

“Strays” to open alongside Blue Beetle

The R-rated comedy “Strays,” from Universal, which is aiming to earn $15 million to $17 million over the weekend, will open alongside “Blue Beetle.” Josh Greenbaum and Dan Perrault’s dog-themed comedy Strays seems like it will be a lot of fun. It centers around Reggie, a naive Border terrier who gathers a litter of abandoned puppies in order to get revenge on his cruel former owner Doug (Will Forte). Famous actors that have voiced in the movie include Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, Will Forte, Isla Fisher, and Sofa Vergara.
