The "Barbie" director answered whether she plans to make a second installment of the acclaimed movie

The movie Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, became a hit in 2023 long before the film was released, and marketers did a great job of creating a powerful advertising campaign for the comedy. Viewers around the world are wearing pink outfits to movie screenings, and the box office for the first weekend of release has become a record after the coronavirus quarantine. This success suggests that the film's authors will not miss the opportunity to earn even more and make a sequel. However, the film's director, Greta Gerwig, has a different opinion.

She hastened to upset the fans: there are no plans to shoot the second part of Barbie. This response from the director was published in The New York Times.

Gerwig admitted that she showed everything she wanted in the movie, and she has no idea for the continuation of the story.

"This is all I have right now. At the end of each movie, I feel like I'll never have another idea, and I've done everything I've ever wanted to do. I wouldn't want to ruin someone's dream, but I have zero ideas so far," the filmmaker was quoted as saying.

As a reminder, the premieres of two major summer 2023 movie hits, Barbie and Oppenheimer, took place on the same day, July 20. This divided the audience into two clans: some went to see the cautionary comedy about the iconic blonde doll, while others went to see the biographical thriller about the creator of the atomic bomb. However, there were some particularly brave moviegoers who decided to attend two screenings in one day. The Internet even gave this confrontation, or rather cultural phenomenon, a name: "Barbieheimer". However, the "pink" film by Greta Gerwig won. During its first weekend at the box office, Barbie grossed $300 million.

However, both the first and second films, despite their multimillion-dollar box office receipts, managed to acquire haters. Moviegoers all over the world find gaffes and historical inaccuracies in the films. Some of them have caused high-profile international scandals. Read more here.
