He was on Marc Maron's WTF podcast a couple weeks ago and was easily one of the most moving and human interviews in the 1000s he's ever done. Titus' spirituality unlocked a lot inside Marc that he didn't anticipate and it got real! Fascinating interview for any fans of Titus. Warning though bc he does discuss the sex abuse in his youth.

In the first trailer Ken suggests to Barbie that they should go back to her house together at night, she asks why, and he just says "Cause we're girlfrenboyfren", which is exactly what and how a little girl would say cause they don't know the reason behind why couples spend the night together, they just know that it's just something they do.

1.4k

u/Severe-Emu-8703 11d ago

Also when Barbie asks ”to do what?” Ken goes ”I actually have no idea” which is also accurate since a kid wouldn’t actually know what goes down when you stay the night, just that you’re supposed to do it when you’re a couple

What if the entirety of it is happening in a little girl’s mind and that’s why they’re all moving so stuff and doll like. She’s manipulating the dolls.

Also, the horror version:

What if Barbie Dolls are actual little mini people bred by Mattel who are transformed by some ray gun into little plastic dolls once they are fully matured. Like Logan’s Run.

His interaction with the doctor was unexpected and felt completely out of character to me. But your pointing to the culture shock that Ken will have has me realizing he'll be experiencing a world where he's viewed as the one in charge as opposed to his home world where Barbie "rules". It's not just going to be Barbie who's having to come to terms with how the real world views her but Ken as well

Damn, my excitement just continues to increase for this

324

u/JoeyWilcoXXX 11d ago

Yeah I didn’t really get him doing that. I’ve never really pictured the guy with a girlfriend with a million different jobs would be the one to say ‘my qualifications are ‘I am a man’’ and not really taking the doctor telling him ‘no you can’t’ seriously (possibly because she’s not a man?)

382

u/laserdiscgirl 11d ago edited 11d ago

Absolutely. My prediction is that the doctor scene is after Ken's been "educated" by irl men about how his status as a man is all that's needed to be in control of a situation OR maybe it's after he's realized how many jobs men have in the real world that aren't just "Barbie's boyfriend" and his reaction to the doctor saying he can't is less about newfound sexism and more just his basic logic of "I'm a man -> here, men have jobs like Barbie does -> Barbie job hops all the time and all it takes is a label/props/costume -> I, a man in this man-friendly world, will become a doctor with a clicky pen and sharp thing"

Edit because I forgot Ken has had jobs before too (just not as many as Barbie) so it could also just be as simple as he wants to be a doctor and this was his attempt at a job interview

Second edit: Robbie's Variety article has her and Gosling saying his Ken's job is "just beach" so...less likely he wants to be a doctor for old time's sake and more likely he just wants to be a doctor because now he can

67

u/ContextIsForTheWeak 11d ago

Edit because I forgot Ken has had jobs before too (just not as many as Barbie)

Fair point, but I think it's worth noting that the ads from earlier this year were all like "this Barbie is a Doctor" "this Barbie is a diplomat" "He's Ken" "this Barbie is a popstar" "He's Ken too"

Young people. They were saying Ryan and Margot were to old to play Barbie and Ken, that Margot looked 40 and some even suggested Dove Cameron as Barbie. The audacity and the horror!

everyon knows Dove Cameron is a shoe-in for the Bratz movie, not Barbie material.

I thought the issue was that pre-trailers everyone just assumed he was too old to be Ken? He's clearly a real-life Ken Doll.

This feels like a Mattel-sponsored Truman Show

Greta "can I portray you as a bleak depressing corporation run by a clownish buffoon?"

Mattel "I don't see why not"

Capital: "Make art that I can profit off of."

Artist: "Can I make art that criticizes capital?"

Capital: "That depends, will it make me a profit?"

Artist: "Most likely."

Capital: "Then go right ahead!"

Also getting some Lego movie vibes too but that might just be from associating will Ferrell as the villain in a movie about toys

248

u/oakydoke 11d ago

My call is that it’s unironically a sequel to Lego Movie. The out-of-context shot of Will Ferrell in a business suit, in a complete diversion from the bright colors of Barbie’s world, spells it out for me.

u/Audrey-Bee 11d ago

The "BarbieLand" rainbow reminds me of the labels over the different Lego lands too. I don't actually expect them to be tied together, but I loved the Lego Movie/Lego Batman movie, so if there's more surprisingly good toy movies, I'm in

I think I am kinda getting the plot. It is about reclaiming the barbie aesthetic or how girls who genuinely love being girly get mocked.

You see people mocking Barbie for wearing bright colours and how when she introduces herself to bunch of girls, they say "We haven't played with Barbie since we were five." and they were all clad in black and seemed kinda dissatisfied.

This also lines with how some people perceive Margot in real life. Despite having the talent, many people don't take her seriously, because of her blonde-bombshell look.

Again this is just my theory.

u/RegretBaguette 11d ago edited 11d ago

I'm getting different vibes, but I like your interpretation. For me it reminds you of the moment you lose your girlhood and are forced into womanhood. Older men look at you differently and treat you like a sexual object. Other girls and older women start policing your appearance. The magic of childhood is being ripped away from you, and you have to learn how to define yourself by everyone else's expectations and interpretations of who you are as a woman (even though you're still a child).

Edit: another thought, if Will's character is the dad from the Lego Movie, then we could also view his actions as the fear your dad expresses when he realizes you're maturing. Often dads will try to suppress and police your newfound "womanhood," which can be scary and confusing when you don't even understand what's going on, you just know something has shifted about how others perceive you.

I get the feeling the “weird things” that start happening in Barbie’s world are gonna be when her little girl hits that age… that time when kids suddenly think playing with toys is lame.

38

u/RegretBaguette 11d ago

Absolutely. And if Barbie started losing her magic, for lack of a better term, then I'm guessing it's also that moment where you're still desperately trying to cling to the fun that was playing pretend but something is wrong. Then outside influence cements the idea of playing pretend is for babies and it's gone forever.

Greta Gerwig just mentioned being inspired by the parenting book Reviving Ophelia in a recent interview. And those are the exact themes the book deals with so I think your interpretation is right on.

Every single person that liked this trailer needs to watch Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse, NOW! It's on Netflix, people! Optionally while smoking a blunt. Give it just 2 episodes worth of your time, and thank me later.
