20,000 Moviegoers Have Already Purchased Tickets For a “Barbenheimer” Double Feature

They say opposites attract, and that has never been more true for “Barbenheimer.”

AMC reports that over 20,000 moviegoers have already purchased tickets for the event of the summer: a double feature of Greta Gerwig’s cheerfully pink Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s unsettlingly black-and-white Oppenheimer.

Barbenheimer, which refers to seeing both films on the same day, has become a popular topic of conversation online, complete with it’s own memes and merch. And even the casts of both films have gotten in on the fun. Last month, Barbie‘s Margot Robbie and Gerwig shared a photo holding their tickets to Oppenheimer.

Cillian Murphy, who plays J. Robert Oppenheimer, shared his own enthusiasm for Barbie.

“I can’t wait to see Barbie,” Murphy said. “I love Margot Robbie, I love Ryan Gosling. My advice would be for people to go see both on the same day.”

With a combined runtime of 5 hours and 9 minutes, not including trailers, the “Barbenheimer” double feature will require fans to make a substantial time commitment. We suggest putting in your PTO request now, rather than later.

The Barbenheimer double feature will release in theaters on July 21, 2023.
