Cinemacon is currently underway and many in the industry currently there have given us descriptions of the footage from the event. One of the more exciting movies coming this year is, Barbie. We found description of the footage shown from Discussing Film below:

“CinemaCon got a look at a new trailer for Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. The footage kicks off with Margot Robbie’s Barbie living her best life in Barbie Land, waking up every morning to the same comical routine and hanging out with her fellow Barbies and Kens. They have beach and disco night parties where they break out into synchronized dance numbers. Margot’s Barbie accidently breaks the mood one day when she asks her fellow dolls if they’ve ever thought about death while dancing in a hilarious needle scratch moment.

From that moment on, our main Barbie starts to experience side effects from her curiosity, which includes her heel-shaped feet going flat like normal humans. This, of course, scares the living hell out of her fellow dolls. Her friends encourage her to visit “the Weird Barbie” who lives on top of this hill in a zany and bizarre dollhouse. The Weird Barbie is played by Kate McKinnon and is dressed in a mix match of different colorful outfits while also stuck doing the splits with her legs. She knows the truth about their world and offers our main Barbie a choice like in The Matrix – choose the pink heel to stay in Barbie Land or choose a dirty sandal to learn the origins of being a doll. Margot’s Barbie just wants to go back to her simple life but the Weird Barbie forces her to take the sandal.

Margot’s Barbie is next seen in the desert driving out of Barbie Land in her pink convertible. Ken surprises her by secretly sneaking in the back seat to tag along for the ride since they’re an inseparable dup. From there on, the two explore reality while behaving like their pastiche selves, from roller skating at the Santa Monica Pier to getting arrested by the police for causing all kinds of humorous mischief. Will Ferrell, who is the CEO of the company that invented all the dolls and runs Barbie Land in secrecy, discovers that two of their subjects have escaped and launches a full search mission. America Ferrera’s character is a suit who works for Ferrell and joins in on the search.

As Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling cause chaos in reality, the rest of the Barbies and Kens back home start to grow suspicious and ask questions. A Barbie vs. Ken war soon ensues within all their confusion. This trailer finally sheds more light on what the actual plot of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is going to be. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s adventures in the real world will more than likely take up most of the second half of the movie while the rest of the Barbies and Kens run amok back in Barbie Land. Will Ferrell and America Ferrera will also have to come to terms with their own creations in the dolls as they lose control of their toy empire. John Cena’s merman Ken with long hair is briefly seen in Barbie Land at the beach. Maybe he’s a partner to Dua Lipa’s Mermaid Barbie?”

This description has made us even more excited for Barbie, which is slated for release later this year.
