Barbie phenomenon reaches Cuban movie theaters

Havana, Sep 22 (Prensa Latina) After the overwhelming success and more than a billion dollars at the US box office, the movie 'Barbie' also generates expectations in the Cuban film industry that awaits the reaction of the public during its premiere in this capital on Thursday.

The film, by moviemaker Greta Gerwig, will be screened at the centrally located Riviera movie theater, at the crossroads of 23rd Street and G Avenue, according to the Cubacine website.

The screening in Havana of the long-awaited ‘pink fury’ will take place this weekend at 5:00 p.m., local time, while in the United States, Warner Bros. Pictures announced a seven-day re-release starting on Friday, September 22.

The world premiere of ‘Barbie’ in July took movie enthusiasts and lovers of the famous doll by surprise, as they were expecting a story similar to that of the animated films.

According to the Cubacine website, Gerwig gives us a Barbie who questions her identity in a perfect society.

More than a feminist film, as US conservatives labeled the motion picture, it is a somewhat light production, which leads to reflect on how the imbalances of US society affect its inhabitants.

Entertaining and promising to leave viewers with various emotions,’Barbie’ has generated a phenomenon that was baptized with the contraction of its name and that of its premiere companion ‘Oppenheimer’, united and turned into the event of the year.

Barbenheimer took the film world by surprise and, above all, the social networks, thus becoming a hot event that generated memes, discussions and commotion on the Internet.

The simultaneous release of both motion pictures in movie theaters came as a surprise. ‘Barbie’ and ‘Oppenheimer’ gave rise to an unexpected duet with different audiences, the first one from the pink world, that of the most famous doll in the world: Barbie; the other film, the story of the so-called father of the Atomic Bomb.
