Barbie Soars Past $1 Billion at Box Office – A Milestone for Female Directors!

Women Director Achieves Historic Milestone as “Barbie” Global Ticket Sales Surpass $1 Billion

Barbie, the fantasy-comedy film, has shattered records, becoming the biggest movie ever directed by a woman. With a staggering $1.0315 billion in global ticket sales, Greta Gerwig, the Oscar-nominated writer, and director, also achieves a historic feat as the first solo female filmmaker to surpass the billion-dollar benchmark.

Over the weekend, Barbie drew a phenomenal $127 million worldwide, with $53 million from domestic theaters and an impressive $74 million overseas, according to Comscore data.

In the realm of box office history, only 53 movies have crossed the $1 billion mark, making Barbie’s achievement all the more remarkable. Notably, it now holds the title of the largest live-action movie directed by a woman in North America, outperforming Wonder Woman’s global total of $821.8 million.

While The Super Mario Bros. reigns as this year’s top grosser at $1.357 billion, Barbie’s phenomenal success cements its place among the most iconic films ever made. The movie’s triumph highlights the growing impact and recognition of female filmmakers in the industry.

Congratulations to the entire Barbie team on this groundbreaking achievement! 🎉 #BarbieMovie #BoxOfficeRecord #FemaleDirectors #GretaGerwig #MovieMilestone
