Barbie's real full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. In the Greta Gerwig-directed film Barbie [2023], Barbie's surname was changed to Handler, after Ruth Handler, creator of Barbie.

Barbie [2023] became the most successful film directed solely by a woman in August, when the Greta Gerwig film surpassed DC superhero movie Wonder Woman [2017], directed by Patty Jenkins. Wonder Woman grossed $822 million in 2017. It has also made more than the three other films Gerwig directed - Nights and Weekends, Lady Bird, and Little Women - combined.

Oppenheimer [2023] director Christopher Nolan is a champion of the IMAX 1570 format, the highest-resolution film in existence. With a runtime of three hours, the IMAX 1570 Oppenheimer reel weighs over 250 kilograms and when fully unravelled, will measure 18 kilometers in length!

While Oppenheimer [2023] is the second-highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, the crown still belongs to Joaquin Phoenix-starrer Joker [2019]. The film is also the first R-rated feature to make $1 billion worldwide.
