A three-hour Avatar sequel? Yawn. A trailer that might finally explain what the hell Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie is about? Get into my pink convertible, losers, we’re going to the movies.
Avatar: The Way of Water is finally in theaters, taking viewers back to the colonized moon of Pandora first seen in 2009’s $3 billion global box office smash. Yet many moviegoers say they only have eyes for Barbie, which has teased us with an absolutely stacked cast (Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, and Ncuti Gatwa, to name a few), candy-colored publicity stills, and zero details about the plot.
“Barbie lives in Barbie Land and then a story happens,” the film’s IMDb description reads.
Some theaters will be playing a teaser trailer ahead of Avatar screenings. And since Barbie won’t be released until July 21, 2023, people are joking that they’re ready to shell out for a ticket just to catch the previews. (The previews will also include a trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, but as far as we know that film does not include any himbos on rollerblades.)
