The card on the AMC Theaters website reveals that Barbie will last 114 minutes, or 1 hour and 54, including the end credits and any extra scenes.
Greta Gerwig ‘s previous film , Little Women , was 135 minutes long; the first, Lady Bird , instead stood at 94 minutes.
This transposition is obviously surrounded by great expectations, not only due to the enormous popularity of Barbie , but also to see a director like Gerwig grappling with such a project. Recently, the latter stated that her sources of inspiration for the adaptation are above all some musical classics such as The Red Shoes and Les Parapluies de Cherbourg .
I remind you that the Italian release is expected on July 20th . Initially, the project was in the hands of Amy Schumer , but that version was shelved: the actress talked about it here .
The runtime of Greta Gerwig’s #Barbie is reportedly 1 hour 54 minutes.
