Las ventas de boletos de Barbie superan $1.000 millones

By Jordi Bou

August 7, 2023 - El filme de gran éxito Barbie ha rebasado la marca de $1.000 millones en la taquilla global billion, convirtiéndose en la cinta más exitosa dirigida exclusivamente por una directora mujer.

In a statement, Warner Bros. said the fantasy-comedy movie has drawn in $459m so far in the U.S. and $572m internationally.

Oscar-nominated Barbie writer and director Greta Gerwig also became the first female filmmaker to surpass the billion-dollar benchmark as a solo director, Warner Bros. said.

Other female directors have helmed films that have surpassed the $1bn-mark but working with others. Frozen, the animated blockbuster, and its sequel have generated more than $1.4bn in box office takings and were co-directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck.

Meanwhile, Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson and co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, generated more than $1.1bn in takings.
