Well, you knew this was coming as with the release of the “main” trailer for the Margot Robbie Barbie movie, the flick is woke as hell.
Warner Bros. Pictures released a new trailer today which offers the plot of the movie for the first time.
The flick sees Margot Robbie as Barbie making her way from her “perfect” Barbie Land world to the real world where the footage is all about how bad men are.
Robbie’s Barbie learns from Kate McKinnon’s own version of Barbie that she’ll need to travel to the real world to “know the truth about the universe.” Well, guess what the truth is? Yep. Men are bad.
That’s the message the flick is sending to little girls, and of course, everyone else.
Seconds into entering the real world, Barbie gets slapped in the ass by a man, and she immediately punches the man in the face.
We have to assume she is rollerskating at a beach in California where they filmed the movie, so do men go around slapping women in the ass in Cali all the time? I don’t know. I don’t live there. I’ve been there. I’ve never seen it happen.
“If you love Barbie, this movie is for you,” says the trailer.
From there, Will Ferrell, who plays the CEO of Mattel (or is it David Zaslav?), is revealed to be the bad guy of the movie as he wants to put Barbie back in her box where she belongs, and he is shown with a bunch of white dude corporate stooges.
“No one rests until this doll is back in a box!” says Ferrell.
Barbie is also shown getting arrested by cops with the one cop laughing and smiling as Margot Robbie rolls her eyes.
“If you hate Barbie, this movie is for you,” says the trailer.
