Notably, this milestone catapults Barbie to the echelons of Warner Bros.’ history as the second highest-grossing release, trailing only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

Additionally, it claims the illustrious title of the highest-grossing film ever crafted by a female director. Ultimately, overtaking the previous record held by Frozen II.

Behind this glamorous celluloid feat stands Margot Robbie, who not only breathed life into the cherished childhood toy but also orchestrated the film’s production through her esteemed venture, LuckyChap Entertainment.

Founded in 2014 alongside her husband Tom Ackerley, and collaborators Josey McNamara and Sophia Kerr, the production company champions women’s narratives both on screen and behind the scenes. Their roster boasts the Oscar-nominated Promising Young Woman, the superhero spectacle Birds of Prey, and the Netflix sensation Maid.

Robbie’s stardom trajectory, ignited by Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, saw dazzling performances in I, Tonya, Bombshell, and commercial triumphs like Suicide Squad and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Yet none have eclipsed the stratospheric success of Barbie, a blockbuster etching its name in cinema history.

Warner Bros. remains tight-lipped, declining to comment, while Robbie’s representative followed suit. As the Barbie phenomenon sweeps the box office, Robbie’s meteoric payday stands as a testament to the power of female-led narratives and the allure of an enduring toy transformed into a cinematic marvel.
