What occurs within the Barbie teaser trailer?
Properly, you’ll be able to see for your self under, however mainly nothing…and all the things. It’s acquired Margot Robbie’s Barbie rising in a dusty desert on the daybreak of time, clad in a traditional striped bather and open-toe mules, naturally. There are super-tight curled bangs. We’ve acquired flashes of Ryan Gosling in a fringed leather-based vest with a 10-pack of bronzed abs peeking out beneath. There are transient snippets of dance numbers that includes Issa Rae and Simu Liu. Oh, and a picture of Barbie searching into a really pink Barbie world (Barbieland? Barbieverse?). I don’t suppose we get to see the Barbie RV however then once more, most of it flashes so rapidly, it feels extra like a fever dream than a Barbie teaser.
Keep tuned for extra because the manufacturing inevitably rolls out extra within the coming months. In any case, life in plastic, it’s improbable.
