The highly anticipated fantasy comedy ‘Barbie’ has finally arrived for its theatrical release in 2023, captivating audiences with its enchanting storyline. The official release date in the United States is July 21, 2023. With recent disappointing film releases, Warner Bros. Pictures is banking on ‘Barbie’ to be a major success.
Starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Rhea Perlman, ‘Barbie’ is directed and written by Greta Gerwig with Noah Baumbach. Produced by David Heyman, Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley, and Robbie Brenner under the production banners of Heyday Films, LuckyChap Entertainment, NB/GG Pictures, and Mattel Films. Warner Bros Pictures will distribute it.
Will Barbie Movie be on HBO Max?
Yes, it will be on HBO Max. As an official Warner Bros Pictures production, ‘Barbie’ will be available for streaming on HBO Max in the USA due to its streaming rights. According to Warner Bros Pictures’ official streaming policy, ‘Barbie’ will be available for streaming on WBD’s HBO Max after its 45-day traditional theatrical window. However, the notable thing is that the streaming of the movie largely depends on the box office performance. If the film does well in theaters, the makers may extend its streaming release even further.
In addition to HBO Max, ‘Barbie’ will not be available for streaming on other major platforms such as Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, or Hulu because it is a Warner Bros Pictures production, and there is currently no streaming deal in place with any of these platforms for ‘Barbie’ or other films related to Warner Bros Pictures. Overall, this is exciting news for HBO Max users and ‘Barbie’ fans, as it will be available for streaming exclusively on that platform.
Updated- Due to the overwhelming response at the ticket window, it will be streaming on HBO Max in October 2023 instead of the traditional 45-day window.
