At $800m, "Barbie" is top grosser for the company.
Warner Bros. Pictures International (WBPI) has crossed $2bn at the 2023 box office with Greta Gerwig’s Barbie boosting the company’s topline.
Generating over $800m (and $1.43bn worldwide), the Mattel toy adaptation ranks the highest-grossing film of the year-to-date and the studio’s biggest ever release. The movie smashed records in multiple territories around the world and will be one of the heavyweight contenders in picture and director categories in the upcoming awards’ season.
Other notable WBPI performers which have fuelled the box office push this year include The Nun II which reached $167.6m after five weekends in release and The Meg , which has amassed more than $312m at the international box office.
Warner Bros is set to release Wonka, DC sequel Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom and The Color Purple musical reboot later this year.
