Pink-fever has gripped the globe in anticipation of possibly (definitely) the most epic movie to hit the silver screen in a looooong time. It is, of course, Barbie that we’re talking about. Real-life Margot-Robbie-kind-of-beautiful Barbie, and her satirically metrosexual BF Ken-cum-Ryan-Gosling. We’re not sure about elsewhere on the planet but here in the UK, if you Google Barbie right now, your screen goes all pink and sparkly. You know something momentous is happening when the Google graphics come out to play. 

One of the best things about all this? We’re seeing tons of awesome Barbie themed events popping up on Ticket Tailor, providing a glorious, bubblegum-pink dose of lighthearted relief to bogged-down people everywhere. Without further ado, here’s a quick lowdown on all things Barbie the movie, plus a round-up of some themed events you definitely won’t want to miss out on 💓.

💖 What’s all the Barbie fuss about?

Margo Robbie’s Barbie and Ryan Gosling’s Ken live in the picture-perfect world of Barbie Land. Everything’s ultra-colourful (ok, ultra-pink) and things are swimming along just fine until Barbie and Ken find themselves catapulted out of Barbie land and into the ‘Real World’. There’s irony (lots of it), great music, quite a bit of weirdness, tongue-in-cheek dancing and a whole lot of references to Barbie’s questionable past (the movie’s trailer promises haters of Barbie will love it).

💖 Who’s in the Barbie movie?

Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrel, Greta Gerwig, Michael Cera, Emma Mackey, Kate McKinnon… need we say more?

💖 When is the Barbie movie coming out?

Out in cinemas from 21st July 2023, baby!

💖 Where can I watch the Barbie movie?

Every cinema everywhere, hopefully.
