Barbie Breaks 14 Records In Just Two Weekends

The Barbie Movie has been a massive hit at the box office, breaking 14 records in just its first two weekends. 

It was released alongside Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, and the viral intrigue surrounding Barbie likely contributed to higher cinema attendance than if the films were released separately. 

Barbie grossed an estimated $155 million in its opening 3-day domestic weekend, $287.4 million in its first week, and $93 million in its second weekend at the domestic box office. 

Globally, the movie has already surpassed $800 million and is projected to reach $1 billion soon, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2023 after The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Warner Bros. may consider making a Barbie 2 given its massive success and appeal to a younger female audience. 

Barbie’s success is further highlighted by its broad appeal, with 65% of the audience being female and 81% being younger than 35. The film’s over-the-top marketing has undoubtedly contributed to its popularity. Barbie is currently playing in cinemas worldwide.

Malta's President Joins 5 Others In Declaring Climate Emergency

The President of Malta George Vella has released a conjoined statement along with five other Heads of State of Mediterranean countries to declare a state of climate emergency. 

Along with the President of the Croatia Zoran Milanovic, President of Greece Katerina Sakellaropoulou, President of Italy Sergio Mattarella, President of Portugal Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and President of Slovenia Nataša Pirc Musar, Vella said that it is our duty to establish concrete policies in this effort. 

The President pointed to the recent declaration by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres that we have entered the era of global boiling. 

‘The effects are particularly notable in our region, the Mediterranean, which is being effected in severe ways, with risks of flooding, heat waves, fires and desertification.’ 

‘There is no more time to waste and there is no more room for political or economic compromises. It is crucial that the Mediterranean countries coordinate together and react, beginning a collective effort to stop and fix the effects of climate change.’
