The term Barbenheimer was born leading up the the theatrical release of Barbie and Oppenheimer. These two films being released at the same time created a crazy cultural phenomenon, and the films saw impressive box office numbers.
Well, now we are actually going to get a Barbenheimer movie from Charles Band, the creator of the Puppet Master horror franchise. He is producing the film project, which will center around dolls as they attempt to build an atomic bomb. This is 100% real, and an obvious attempt to capitalize on the success of the Barbenheimer madness. This is the synopsis for the movie:
“Deep within Dollsville, a group of fed-up female dolls – led by the brilliant Dr. Barbenheimer – build an atomic bomb. Their mission? To bring down the patriarchy once and for all! But as the battle of the sexes swells, will Barbenheimer and her bevy of beauties end up blowing up more than they bargained for? Comedy, drama, action and Armageddon erupt in Full Moon’s latest freaked out fantasy film, BARBENHEIMER!”
It’s said the film is on the fast track to production and is anticipated to be released on Christmas 2023 on Prime Video. You can expect this to be a silly super low-budget horror film, and it will be interesting to see if the project sees any legal resistance. But, “Barbenheimer” has yet to be awarded a trademark.
