The New Trailer Of Barbie Reveals The Movie Might Just Beat Christopher Nolan At His Own Game

Barbie New Trailer

Barbie’s New Trailer: It looks like Christopher Nolan is being defeated by the Barbie movie based just on the most recent trailer. Greta Gerwig’s film, starring Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken, is a kaleidoscopic nostalgia-filled adventure movie that appears to be as far apart from Nolan’s serious biopic Oppenheimer as possible.

Oppenheimer, which will compete with Gerwig’s movie in July, stars Robert Downey Jr., Emily Blunt, and Matt Damon as historical figures involved in the special tribunal that decided whether or not he had been a spy in the years following World War II.

Based on all we know about Barbie, including its characters, plots, themes, and societal commentary, it appears that Barbie is more of a Nolan film than his most recent significant release.

Why does Barbie feel like a Christopher Nolan movie?

Barbie’s meta-story, which is what makes it similar to so many of Nolan’s other films, would be invalidated if it were to be dismissed as a rom-com or nostalgic gimmick. The film follows Nolan’s usual pattern of employing many universes to explore themes of environment and identity in a narrative about the blurring of the boundaries between truth and fiction.

These patterns in storytelling have been key features in past Nolan films like Memento, Inception, and Tenet, yet they seem to be absent from Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer, on the other hand, appears to be a conventional drama lacking the peculiar calling cards that define a picture as notably Nolan-esque.

Since the release of his Dark Knight trilogy, which was centered on a superhero with a toy line, Nolan hasn’t created a story with such a simple plot. In fact, it still has more in common with Barbie than Oppenheimer. Working within constraints that didn’t exist in his prior works of fiction, Nolan is constrained by actual events involving actual people, which may drive him to exercise his creative license in unanticipated ways.

Barbie, on the other hand, has much less of a need to compartmentalize and can explore the fantastical and even the uncanny valley without losing sight of its overall message or plot.

Barbie’s overarching theme is weirdly brilliant

Beyond the neatly manicured exterior of the Mattel doll lies a woman of numerous vocations, including an astronaut, doctor, marine biologist, rock star, and many more. The Barbie brand has long been about challenging expectations.

Barbie is a role model and an example of an aspirational lifestyle, but she has also come under fire for hinting at unattainable ideals. As dense as any of the conundrums in Nolan’s films, Barbie’s meta-message about identity, superficiality, and authenticity follows a doll’s self-exploration as she travels from her realm to the “real world.”

Barbie the character has genuine goals while Barbie the doll is a fake, presenting an intriguing contrast between reality and illusion. These are equally serious as any of the concepts and issues of Nolan’s movies, and they might be one of the reasons Barbie outperforms Oppenheimer in theatres.
