Greta Gerwig’s Barbie continues to make headlines, as it now surpasses The Super Mario Bros. Movie as the #1 film of the year globally with $1.365 Billion. Its summer blockbuster counterpart, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is also breaking records, surpassing the filmmaker’s 2010 film Inception as his 3rd highest-grossing title ever worldwide, with $850 Million.
This week marks the 7th weekend in release for the two summer films, with Barbie hanging in the number one spot, and Oppenheimer due to surpass Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as the No. 3 movie of 2023 globally, coming in behind just Barbie and Super Mario. Of Nolan’s films, it is only now below The Dark Knight Rises and The Dark Knight.
The ascension of Oppenheimer gives Universal three of the Top 5 films this year globally to date.
