Barbie's cinematic debut set a new record during its opening weekend, surpassing initial projections with an impressive $162 million in ticket sales in the United States and Canada, as reported by distributor Warner Bros on Monday.

The final tally for the weekend box office, covering Friday to Sunday, exceeded the studio's previous estimate of $155 million, showing the immense popularity of the "Barbie" movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

Notably, "Barbie" has claimed the top spot as the highest-grossing movie of the year for a domestic opening weekend, outperforming the previous record held by the April release "The Super Mario Bros. Movie," which earned $146.4 million.

Internationally, the film also performed exceptionally well, under the direction of Greta Gerwig, accumulating an impressive $194.3 million across 63 international markets. This led to a remarkable global debut of $356.3 million for "Barbie," further solidifying its success on the international stage.
