Warner Bros. released a new trailer for the highly anticipated movie of Barbie starring margot robbie (Babylon) in the title role. The latest footage teases a conflict in Barbieland as Barbie begins to experience minor inconveniences like cold showers and flat feet.
Barbie must travel to the real world to learn the truth about the universe. However, she does not go alone since Ken (Ryan Gosling by The Gray Man) accompanies his best friend on the trip. Upon arrival, the duo struggle to adjust to the real world, which is the opposite of idyllic Barbieland. To make matters worse, the CEO of the toy company (Spirited’s Will Ferrell) calls the dolls’ presence in the real world “catastrophic” and fights to return Barbie and Ken to their home.
