Since its release last month, Barbie has become the second highest grossing film of the year so far. Recently, Blue Beetle has been ousted from the top spot at the US box office, after spending four weeks at the top.
Earlier this month, Barbie surpassed Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight to become the highest-grossing film in Warner Bros. history.
Starring Margot Robbie, Barbie opened on the same day as Nolan’s last film, Oppenheimer, creating the “Barbenheimer” phenomenon that fueled the box office success of both films.
In addition to “I’m Just Ken,” the film’s soundtrack includes features from Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Dua Lipa, Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith, and Charli XCX.
