Greta Gerwig’s film Barbie makes history as it breaks the billion-dollar mark at the box office globally.

In less than three weeks, Barbie has raked in $1.03 billion at the worldwide box office, according to official figures from Warner Bros. The success of Barbie at the box office has been astounding. Since its July 21 debut, it has maintained the top rank on the domestic market, earning $53 million for the week ending August 4 most recently.

In addition to holding the top spot in 35 regions, Barbie is now the second-biggest studio release of 2023 worldwide and globally, trailing only The Super Mario Bros, which earned $1 billion this year.

The living doll also enjoys the top spot this year in 19 territories for a U.S. film, including Italy, the UK, Brazil, and Australia. It’s the largest Warner Bros title ever in 12 markets, including Poland, Brazil, and Australia.

Barbie has already eclipsed the lifetime earnings of Fast X, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and a number of other films on her way to crossing the $1 billion mark.

The success of Barbie has led to another great weekend at the box office, with combined domestic revenue for all films reaching around $180 million. This amounts to a startling 90% increase over the same period last year and a 19% increase over 2019.

Barbie’s achievement is particularly memorable as it becomes the first live-action film directed solely by a female to join the global billion-dollar club. It has broken the marks set by Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman, both directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.

The film Barbie centers around Barbie and Ken, portrayed by Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, respectively, as they set out on a journey of self-discovery in the real world. The impressive cast also includes Issa Rae, Dua Lipa, Simu Liu, Michael Cera, Helen Mirren, John Cena, and Will Ferrell.

Other top movies in theatres

After Barbie, Meg 2: The Trench also did well in its opening weekend, bringing in an estimated $30 million domestically, in addition to Barbie’s success. It made an additional $112 million overseas, starting its international run at $142 million. Even while this is a little less than The Meg, its predecessor, which made $45 million on the opening weekend in 2018, it is still a strong start taking into account the present competitive environment.
