Warner Bros. Pictures’ new Barbie movie appears to be doing great at the box office. As reported by Deadline, the new film from Greta Gerwig, which stars Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in the roles of Ken and Barbie, followed up its record $26.1 million Monday at the domestic box office with a similarly successful $26 million on Tuesday. This marks a new Tuesday milestone for Warner Bros., beating previous contenders that include Aquaman (Christmas Day 2018, $21.98 million) and The Dark Knight (July 22, 2008, $20.8 million). Deadline also noted that Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan’s new atomic bomb film, is doing pretty well, having earned $12 million on Tuesday for a domestic total of over $100 million thus far.
