Barbie is set to be the film of the summer and the official trailer (which you can watch above!) is exactly what we wanted, giving fans their first real look at the plot of the star-studded film.

As we all know, everyone's favourite childhood doll is getting her very own big-budget live-action film fronted by none other than Margot Robbie – her take on the Barbara Millicent Roberts role is already iconic!

The cast boasts one of the biggest and best line-ups of stars in recent years, with the likes of Ryan Gosling, Emma Mackey, Dua Lipa, Ncuti Gatwa and so many more featuring in the film.

When does the Barbie movie come out?

Barbie comes out on 21st July! The buzz surrounding the Barbie movie is growing every day and the wait isn't too much longer...

The hotly-anticipated Greta Gerwig film is just a matter of weeks away now.

Is there a Barbie trailer?

Yes! Fans were treated to their longest trailer yet on May 25 and it's safe to say that it sent the internet into a frenzy (watch at the top of the page).

The second trailer shows Barbie's (Margot Robbie) expedition into the real world after her pink dreamland slowly starts to go wrong, for example, her iconic heeled feet turn flat – the horror! Oh, and she takes Ken (Ryan Gosling) with her as she tries to fit in with reality.

Mattel boss (Will Ferrel) proves himself to be the film's villain as he tries to capture Barbie, apparently if news got out it would be 'catastrophic' for the Barbie Dreamland. The trailer also gave us a sneak preview of brand new songs from Dua Lipa and Nicki Minaj as part of 'Barbie The Album'.

The latest trailer which dropped on July 10 showcased a more emotional side to the film as it featured the first teaser of Billie Eilish's soundtrack song 'What Was I Made For?' - you can watch it below.

Ryan Gosling dishes details on his Ken character in the Barbie flick

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ryan Gosling revealed that the character of Ken might not be what people expect in the upcoming Greta Gerwig adaptation of Barbie.

The Hollywood A-lister revealed: “Ken’s got no money, he’s got no job, he’s got no car, he’s got no house. He’s going through some stuff.”

“It’s not what you think it is, unless it is," the 41-year-old continued cheekily, “And then you know what it is, but I don’t think that’s what you think it is. Wait, what are we talking about?”
