Barbie has been the most successful film of the summer becoming one of few movies in cinema history to generate over $1 billion worldwide.

Coming out on the same date as another highly-anticipated major feature, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, the film helped generate the most buzz seen in the industry since the pandemic.

Margot Robbie stars as the title character alongside Ryan Gosling, and a host of other famous faces in the colourful look at the longtime Mattel doll.

The Barbie screening closes this year’s season of shows in Bucks on 17 September.
