Barbie continues to break records as it hits $1.184 billion USD at the global box office, maintaining its No. 1 spot for four weeks in a row. The Greta Gerwigfilm has also become the highest grossing live-action movie directed by a female director and the second-highest grossing release in the history of Warner Bros.. On a global scale, the film has earned $45.1 million USD from 75 markets, bringing its international gross to $657.6 million USD. This is officially the top-earning movie from a female filmmaker, a historic feat for Gerwig.

The film has also surpassed Warner Bros. The Dark Knight Rises and three of the Harry Potter films to make it on the studio’s top 10 list of biggest WB titles of all-time internationally. Landing the same day as Christopher Nolan‘s Oppenheimer, Barbie has proved to be a the winner in the much-talked about “Barbenheimer” debate. Oppenheimer continues to succeed at the box office globally, earning $649 million USD worldwide surpassing Nolan’s own Dunkirk.

Both films are considered must-sees in the theaters this summer. Barbie features Margot Robbie and Ryan Reynolds to lead a star-studded cast. Gerwig co-wrote the film with Noah Baumbach and has brought viral moments like the song “I’m Just Ken” all over the world.

In case you missed it, Sacha Baron Cohen will head on comedy tour in character as Ali G.
