“You’re all individuals!” “Yes, we’re all individuals!”
Oops that was Life Of Brian (back in UK cinemas for Easter, folks!) not Barbie, though to be fair Barbie must have done as much hopping as Brian‘s ex-leper, considering how often she’d lose a shoe.
Back in the late ’80s, there was a popular boyband called Bros, comprising identical twins Matt and Luke Goss, and the third, unrelated member, Craig: who was known, thanks to Smash Hits magazine’s mockery, as Ken. While the Goss twins settled for decades of arguing and TV-examined introspection, Ken quietly went off and became a successful Ivor Novello-nominated writer, producer and manager. So what I’m saying is — apart from to 1980s-era Brossettes, You Are Seen — is never underestimate a Ken.
And there are plenty to chose from in this new teaser, along with a shed load of Barbies, and even a few humans.
Here’s the synopsis:
To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken.
It looks like Barbie 1.0 (Margot Robbie) leaves Barbie-land with Ken 1.0 (Ryan Gosling). So maybe a cross between Toy Story and The Truman Show, but pink, and with no navels? Perhaps there’ll also be some sabotage from evil Brit dolls Sindy and Princess Pippa, who’ve hatched up a plan after having a sneaky cig round the back of the bike sheds.
All will be revealed on when Barbie is released in UK cinemas on 21 July! Check out the teaser below and scroll down for posters.
