Christopher Nolan’s highly awaited film Oppenheimer, as well as Greta Gerwig’s much-discussed Barbie adaption, are slated to visit Indian theatres this Friday, July 21. With so much buzz around both films, early indications point to a solid start at the box office.

Oppenheimer initiated advance booking ten days ago and received an overwhelming response within the first several hours. According to cinema trade expert Himesh Mankad, a remarkable 90,000 tickets have already been bought across major chains such as PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis for the film’s opening day, including showing in IMAX format.
Meanwhile, Barbie, which has lately begun advance booking, has demonstrated good results. Mankad stated that the film sold 16,000 tickets across different chains on its opening day, indicating strong enthusiasm among audiences.

Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie, stars of the next Barbie adaption, already expressed their support for Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer by posing with a ticket in front of the film’s poster at a movie theatre.

Similarly, Cillian Murphy, who plays Oppenheimer’s titular character, expressed excitement for Barbie and commended the simultaneous release of two outstanding films by renowned filmmakers. Tom Cruise previously indicated interest in seeing both Barbie and Oppenheimer on their debut weekends. During an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald, the Mission Impossible 7 star disclosed his plans to see Oppenheimer on July 21 and Barbie the next day.

The simultaneous release of these films has generated excitement and interest among audiences. Indian fans can now look forward to an exciting cinematic experience, with the option of spending the full day at the movies to savour these two exceptional offers. The enthusiasm surrounding “Barbenheimer” grows as the release date approaches.
