Barberheimer Mania dominated the global box office with Barbie breaking records and earning $337 million worldwide, making it the biggest opening of the year. Oppenheimer, an atomic bomb thriller, secured the second spot with $174 million in global earnings. Instead of turning the releases into a competition, the studio turned it into a collaborative event. Margot Robbie, before the actors' strike, promoted Barbie dresses worldwide. The video highlights Carol Spencer, the designer of iconic Barbie outfits, including Astronaut Barbie and Totally Hair Barbie. Barbie's enduring popularity appears to have saved Hollywood.
