Greta Gerwig's highly-anticipated live-action film, Barbie, starring Margot Robbie as the iconic doll, is expected to make a remarkable opening at the box office, potentially reaching or surpassing $80 million on its first day in theatres.

Also, Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer, featuring Cillian Murphy, has the potential to debut with an impressive $50 million in box office earnings. Both films are scheduled to release on July 21 and are anticipated to contribute to a collective weekend box office revenue of nearly $200 million in the United States from July 21 to July 23.

Barbie and Oppenheimer, according to a recent report, are generating significant buzz among fans. While Warner Bros conservatively projects a $60 million opening for Barbie, industry insiders suggest that the film could achieve a minimum of $80 million on its opening day. Furthermore, with its star-studded cast and widespread appeal, Barbie has the potential to exceed expectations and potentially reach a $100 million start.

Oppenheimer, a thought-provoking drama delving into the origins of the atomic bomb, is predicted to earn between $40 million and a possible $50 million in its opening weekend. Comparing the two films, distribution insiders have noted that Oppenheimer is expected to attract a more mature and predominantly male audience while Barbie appeals to a younger and primarily female demographic.

The projected weekend box office earnings of nearly $200 million will also include the $35 million expected from the second weekend of the highly-anticipated Tom Cruise-led Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, set to release on July 12.

Margot Robbie and Greta Gerwig, associated with the Oppenheimer project, recently shared images on social media, promoting the film alongside tickets for other highly anticipated releases such as Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and Oppenheimer itself.

In the forthcoming irreverent comedy Barbie, the eponymous doll and Ken (played by Ryan Gosling) venture into the real world, much to the chagrin of a Mattel executive portrayed by Will Ferrell. Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, presents a biographical account of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist instrumental in the development of nuclear weapons. The film boasts an impressive ensemble cast including Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, and Florence Pugh.
