A new release date for the movie has been set for August.
Barbie, a fantasy comedy film directed by actress and filmmaker Greta Gerwig from a screenplay she wrote with Noah Baumbach, has been delayed for release in UAE cinemas until August 31. The film was initially due to hit UAE cinemas on July 20.
Based on the Barbie fashion dolls by Mattel, the film is the first live-action Barbie film after many computer-animated direct-to-video and streaming television films.
The film stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling as Barbie and Ken, respectively, alongside an ensemble supporting cast that includes America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, Rhea Perlman, and Will Ferrell.
The film was announced in September 2009 by Universal Pictures with Laurence Mark producing, but development began in April 2014, when Sony Pictures acquired its film rights.
The movie follows Barbie and Ken who are having the time of their lives in the seemingly perfect (and very pink) world of Barbie Land. Temptation arrives when they are offered the chance to see the real world, where they soon discover the perils of living among humans.
