How Margot Robbie Truly Made Barbenheimer Occur

This Barbie is not enjoying round. 

Margot Robbie revealed {that a} producer from Oppenheimer initially requested her to maneuver Barbie‘s launch date so the 2 movies would not compete.

“I used to be like, ‘We’re not transferring our date,'” the Babylon actress instructed Cillian Murphy on Selection‘s Dec. 5 episode of Actors on Actors. “‘In the event you’re scared to be up in opposition to us, you then transfer your date.'”

The producer allegedly stated that whereas the historic thriller would transfer ahead with its debut, he felt it was greatest for the Mattel-inspired film to reschedule.

“I used to be like, ‘We’re not transferring,” she defined. “‘I feel it is a actually nice pairing, truly.’ It is an ideal double billing—Oppenheimer and Barbie.”

The Peaky Blinders star could not agree extra, laughing, “It was a superb intuition.”

And Margot was proper. “Barbenheimer,” a phrase combining movies Barbie and Oppenheimer, blew away field workplace projections throughout its opening weekend, in line with CNBC.
