Barbie Shatters Box Office Records, Surpasses The Dark Knight as Biggest Monday Collection Ever


In a historic achievement, “Barbie,” the fantasy comedy-drama starring Margot Robbie, has smashed box office records, surpassing Christopher Nolan’s iconic “The Dark Knight” with the biggest Monday collection ever.

Directed by Greta Gerwig and released on July 21, “Barbie” has taken the world by storm, captivating audiences and breaking records along the way. The film’s exceptional performance outshone Nolan’s highly anticipated “Oppenheimer” in major countries, becoming an instant box office hit, except in India.

The latest reports reveal that “Barbie” registered a staggering $26.2 million in worldwide box office collections on its first Monday, making it the highest Monday gross ever and dethroning “The Dark Knight,” which held the record for 15 years. The achievement marks a significant milestone for Warner Bros., the production banner behind both films.


“Barbie” is an enchanting movie based on the beloved Barbie dolls created by Mattel. Margot Robbie takes on the titular role, portraying a “stereotypical” Barbie, while the talented Ryan Gosling stars as Ken and Helen Mirren serves as the narrator. The film boasts an impressive ensemble cast, including America Ferrera, Micheal Cara, Ariana Greenblatt, and Rhea Perlman, with surprise cameo appearances adding to the excitement.

On the other hand, “The Dark Knight,” released in 2008 and directed by Christopher Nolan, remains an enduring masterpiece in the superhero genre. Christian Bale’s exceptional portrayal of Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman, coupled with Heath Ledger’s iconic performance as the Joker, made the film a critical and commercial triumph, earning it cult status.

As “Barbie” continues to captivate audiences worldwide, its record-breaking success cements its position as one of the biggest box office hits in recent times. With Greta Gerwig’s directorial finesse and the stellar performances of the cast, the film’s triumph is a testament to the enduring charm of the beloved Barbie character and the timeless appeal of fantastical storytelling.
