And the correct answer is Barbie & Oppenheimer.
AMC Theaters has announced that over 20,000 members of its AMC Stubs loyalty program have already purchased tickets for the upcoming “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” double feature, which has been dubbed as “Barbenheimer” by fans. The unexpected combination of the bright and bubbly “Barbie” and the serious nuclear bomb drama “Oppenheimer” has generated a buzz online, with fans creating T-shirts, posters, and closely following the marketing for both films.
The VP of programming at AMC Theaters, Elizabeth Frank, stated that the growing online conversation around the double feature is turning into ticket sales, and the company is thrilled to see the momentum. The combined runtime for the films is 5 hours and 9 minutes, excluding trailers, requiring a substantial time commitment from fans. Even Tom Cruise expressed his support for both movies, stating that he plans to watch “Oppenheimer” first on Friday and “Barbie” the following day.
