We get another look at Margot Robbie as the iconic doll and Ryan Gosling as cowboy Ken in a fresh batch of set photos from the upcoming Barbie movie. released thanks to Margot Robbie’s fans on Twitter.
Over the years, the Mattel toy line has provided Barbie and Ken with a number of cowboy outfits, and it appears that the film will draw heavily from this source. Throughout the course of the Barbie movie, Ken and Barbie will undoubtedly change their clothing several times.
Hopefully, we’ll get to see something along the lines of the fantastic montage from Toy Story 3, in which Ryan Gosling tries on a variety of increasingly outrageous outfits.
Barbie director Greta Gerwig and star Margot Robbie can be seen working together and clearly enjoying themselves in additional photos taken on the set.
What is the “Barbie” movie all about?
The Barbie movie’s plot is currently unknown, but it has been rumored that Margot Robbie will play a version of Barbie who no longer feels like she belongs.
Robbie teased that the project will be different from what viewers might be expecting, so we can safely assume that things will get meta regardless of the plot.
“We like the things that feel a little left of center,” the actress said. “Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, ‘Oh, Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is,’ but our goal is to be like, ‘Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different – the thing you didn’t know you wanted.'”
“Now, can we truly honor the IP and the fan base and also surprise people?” she continued. “Because if we can do all that and provoke a thoughtful conversation, then we’re really firing on all cylinders.”
