According to word-of-mouth and reviews, Barbie, a mass-market film, was already expected to perform well at the box office before its release. Even Christopher Nolan, who has purposefully stayed out of the controversy the entire time, appeared to be giving up as Greta Gerwig’s movie was expected to win with a resounding victory.

The summer’s biggest opening weekend went to Barbie, but Universal’s Oppenheimer accomplished an equally remarkable feat by defying all odds and earning $82.5 million on its debut (first week).

Younger audiences helped Barbie reach the top of the box office and contributed to its enormous box office haul, per demographic data. But Oppenheimer continues to set records, and the stage is set for a fierce confrontation between ardent admirers of cinematic artistry.
