Barbie movie first looks sees Margot Robbie on beach in black-and-white swimsuit

A teaser trailer has been released for the new Barbie movie which shows Margot Robbie in leading role.

In the short teaser trailer, several young girls are seen playing with different types of baby dolls in the middle of a remote beach.

Narrating the teaser clip, Dame Helen Mirren says: “Since the beginning of time, since the first little girl ever existed, there have been dolls. But the dolls were always and forever baby dolls, until…”

Barbie, played by Margot, suddenly shows up, wearing a black-and-white one piece swimsuit with open-toe heels and huge sunglasses.

The children slowly move up to her, amazed at what they're seeing as they touch her legs to make sure she's real. They soon start to break and throw away their own dolls as if nothing could compare to Barbie.

The trailer immediately transitions to bright pink and blue scenes with Robbie overlooking the neighbourhood and waving waving from the Barbie Dreamhouse.

The rest of the town seem to be made up of similar dreamhouses with the iconic convertible cars driving around, which looks to have been inspired from the Barbie toys.

Ryan Gosling also makes an appearance at the end of the trailer as Ken, wearing an open black vest and headband.

While plot details have been kept tightly under wraps, the film does find Barbie and Ken stuck in the real world, where the former discovers the challenges of being a live woman.

The film is directed by Greta Gerwig who previously worked on “Lady Bird” and “Little Women". The film began production earlier this year in London and wrapped in July.

In November, Gerwig said she was worried that the Barbie movie could end her career.

Speaking with Dua Lipa on the 'At Your Service' podcast, Greta said: "It was something that was exciting because it was terrifying. I think that was a big part of it, like: 'Oh, no, Barbie.'

"It felt like vertigo, starting to write it, like, 'Where do you even begin, and what would be the story?' And I think it was that feeling I had was knowing that it would be really interesting terror.

"Usually that's where the best stuff is, where you're like 'I am terrified of that.' Anything where you're like, 'This could be a career-ender' – then you're like, 'I should probably do it.'"

Australian actress Robbie previously said Barbie, which was launched in 1959, “comes with a lot of baggage” and “a lot of nostalgic connections”.

She told British Vogue: “But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it.

“People generally hear ‘Barbie’ and think, ‘I know what that movie is going to be,’ and then they hear that Greta Gerwig is writing and directing it, and they’re like, ’Oh, well, maybe I don’t…’”

“Barbie” premieres in cinemas on 21 July, 2023.
