Box Office: “Barbie” Crosses the One “Barbillion” Line Today as Warner Bros. Is Out of the Red and In the Pink!


Yes, it’s true. The world is mad for “Barbie.”

Warner Bros. PR has coined the word “Barbillion.” And today, “Barbie” crosses that line worldwide and galactically.

A little less than half of that comes from the US, and “Barbie” isn’t over by a long shot. From now through Labor Day they will be in the pink! All the money they lost on everything else this year seems like a distant memory. Plus, they have the number 2 movie this week — the dreadful horror film,”Meg 2,” and “The Blue Beetle” about to not have a Volkswagen tie-in.

Keep refreshing…
