Following its record-breaking opening week, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Barbie” has surpassed $700 million at the global box office in just 8 days after serving up the biggest week in Warner Bros. history with $578.5 million.

The film debuted in 4,200 North American screens on Friday, July 21, drawing unprecedented crowds in preview showings and throughout the weekend, earning the year’s biggest opening weekend, pre-shows, and single grossing day, as well as the largest-ever opening for a female-directed film.

The film also set studio records for a Monday, Tuesday, and non-opening Wednesday, culminating in the largest seven-day box office for a single film in Warner Bros. history.

Barbie’s big screen debut also maintains its position as one of the year’s best-reviewed films, with a Certified Fresh Rotten Tomatoes Critics rating of 89%, a matching Audience Score, and an A CinemaScore.

Internationally, the film continues to dominate the box office in 69 territories, with the biggest-ever industry opening weekend of the year in 24 of those markets and the biggest-ever Monday for a Warner Bros. Pictures film in 19 territories, including the United Kingdom and Italy, where it reigned through Tuesday.

“Barbie” also set the record for the biggest WB opening weekend of all time in 26 markets, including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico, as well as the biggest opening week of the year in Australia and New Zealand, with the latter also delivering the biggest-ever opening week for a WB film.

Globally, the film is Greta Gerwig’s biggest opening as a director, as well as the biggest opening for Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and nearly every other actor in the film, as well as the biggest opening for a toy-based film.
