Greta Gerwig’s Barbie is officially Warner Bros.’ highest-grossing global release in history, surpassing ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.’

Barbie made its theatrical debut on July 21st, and remained a dominant force ever since. It held the top spot at the box office for four weeks in a row before finishing a strong and unexpectedly close second to Blue Beetle in its fifth week. It maintained its success in its sixth week, nearly surpassing Gran Turismo to take the top spot during its first weekend.

Barbie has earned $594,801,000 at the domestic box office, accounting for approximately 46% of her total earnings. In addition, $745,500,000 has been generated from international markets.

This distribution of ticket sales closely resembles the ratio that contributed to The Super Mario Bros. phenomenal success.

With a worldwide gross of $1,340,301,000, Barbie is just $20 million away from overtaking The Super Mario Bros as the year’s highest-grossing film.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is this year’s third highest-grossing film, earning slightly more than $845 million. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and The Marvels may aspire to that level of success. Although the first films in their respective series grossed more than $1 billion, the sequels may not receive the same amount of love this go around.

Barbie is likely to earn the most money overall in 2023 if Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom or The Marvels do not significantly outperform expectations. Only Barbie and Mario have so far made more than $1 billion at the box office worldwide.
