Barbie to roll out on Imax for 1 week in Singapore starting Sept 21

The Imax version will include a special greeting from director Greta Gerwig. 

Are you ready for a super-sized Barbie?  

The Margot Robbie-starring comedy — based on the iconic Mattel doll line — will be out on Imax for a one-week engagement, starting Sept 21.

The special big-screen-format edition includes a special greeting from director Greta Gerwig will play before the film (be on time!), and exclusive post-credit footage, selected by Gerwig (don’t rush to the exit too soon!).

“The worldwide enthusiasm for Barbie has been overwhelming, humbling, and deeply moving," said Gerwig in a statement. "So many Barbie fans went on this journey with us, and we can’t thank them enough for supporting the film and sharing their Barbie experience in theatres, across social media, and out in the world. 

"We made Barbie for the big screen, so it’s a thrill to be able to bring it to Imax, the biggest screen of all.  And as a special thanks to Barbie fans, we’re excited to share a little bit more of our cast and crew’s incredible work by adding special new footage we hope audiences will enjoy.”

The Imax version of Barbie will also be out in the US (on Sept 22) and select international markets.  

In other Barbie news, Variety reported that the movie will be campaigned for this year’s Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for Ryan Gosling, Best Original Screenplay, and other categories.

The nomination ballots open for voting on Jan 11. The nominations will be announced on Jan 23, while the awards will be handed out on Mar 10.

Since its global rollout in July, Barbie has made over US$1.404 billion (S$1.9 bil); Warner Bros Discovery declined to share the movie's earnings in Singapore.

The non-Imax Barbie is still playing in cinemas. It’s also out on digital (S$29.98, Apple TV; $31.98, Google Play).
