We kennot contain our excitement about Greta Gerwig’s BARBIE! The Fantasy-Comedy takes us away to Barbie Land, where Barbie (Margot Robbie) is rejected for her imperfections. This leads to both she and Ken (Ryan Gosling) heading-off to the real world where they discover themselves for the first time!
Kicking-off Kenada Day long weekend, two of the star-studded film’s Kens, played by Gosling and Simu Liu, got a grand welcome home to their native Kenada. Supported by their family and friends, the duo walked the glittery pink carpet at aptly-chosen hotspot Margo in Toronto. They graced the presence of hundreds of lucky contest winners, plus TV and Radio media, plus Influencers at the event, graciously giving their time to chat about what looks like a surefire summer smash for Warner Bros. Pictures Kenada.
The event literally transformed King St West. into Ken St. West.
Guests got to enjoy complimetary Barbie and Ken makeovers in a Barbie-fied Beauty Bar, dance their hearts out at the best dance party ever on the rooftop patio. There were fun and kitschy photo ops too, including one with a Kenada Beach backdrop – pink sands and all with the CN Tower overlooking it all. One lucky winner was awarded a trip for two to Los Angeles with tickets to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood, a one-year supply of NYX Cosmetics, and a signed Kenada surfboard.
This event was epic and though we already were too excited to see BARBIE, we are now at peak excite! So amazing seeing guests dress-up, channeling their inner Barbies and Kens. And yes, that was Gosling head-to-toe in Gucci. Judging by the sea of pink, Toronto certainly got the memo right.
Warner Bros. Pictures Kenada release BARBIE nationwide on July 21, 2023 and beginning internationally on July 19, 2023. The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring smash hit “Dance the Night” by Dua Lipa also is out July 21, 2023 via Warner Music Canada!
