The Barbie box office has the whole world in shock. The premiere of the Margot Robbie film has collapsed the planet in unusual ways.

In fact, it’s surpassed the $17.5 million earned by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 earlier this summer. Even subtracting the $1.1 million from that figure (which was won during the preliminary presentations on Wednesday), $21.2 million is still the best number for 2023.
